Liverpool have been boosted in their efforts to sign Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma this summer, with the Dutchman keen on leaving his current club.
The Lowdown: Reds linked with Danjuma move
The Reds have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old in recent days, as Jurgen Klopp looks for a replacement for Sadio Mane.
It looks as though the winger could be moving on in the coming months, though, which could alert Liverpool.
The Latest: Fresh rumour emerges
According to El Periodico Mediterraneo [via Sport Witness], Danjuma ‘wants to leave’ Villarreal this summer and has asked his agent to ‘find a way out’ – it even goes so far as to say he ‘will do everything possible to leave’.
He is keen on moving to the Premier League, which further aids Liverpool in their quest to sign him, and a €40m release clause means an offer of just £34m from Julian Ward would get it done.
The Verdict: Good squad option
Danjuma may not be considered a world-class footballer at the moment, but he is someone who could be a great squad option for Klopp, especially if Mane leaves.
Danjuma would have to accept that he would be coming in as a squad player at Liverpool initially, rather than a guaranteed starter, but his pace, trickery and end product would make him a strong addition and potential superstar for the future.
In other news, Liverpool are reportedly ready to sign one player. Find out who it is here.
