The Lowdown: West Ham in talks
After securing the services of Alphonse Areola and Nayef Aguerd at the back, David Moyes will now be wanting to strengthen other areas of the pitch, namely the final third to add goalscoring support for Michail Antonio.
It was reported by The Guardian earlier this week that the Irons are in talks with the 25-year-old Danjuma over a potential move to the Premier League, but despite the article stating that the Hammers feel confident about getting it over the line, a stumbling block now appears to have emerged in negotiations.
The Latest: Romano shares Danjuma update
Taking to Twitter, Romano revealed that it’s personal terms that are currently stopping GSB from completing a deal for Danjuma. He wrote:
“Personal terms are the real issue for Danjuma deal. West Ham have been in talks with Villarreal for weeks on €40m fee but still not even close to agreeing with Danjuma on personal terms/contract.
“West Ham want Danjuma but only at their conditions, so it’s not easy.”
The Verdict: Get it done
If Moyes wants to bolster his ranks with a new attacking addition to provide competition for the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Antonio, then Danjuma is the man to do just the job, and he will already be familiar with English football having previously had a spell at Bournemouth.
The Lagos-born talent, dubbed an ‘exceptional player‘ by Jonathan Woodgate, was a force to be reckoned with last season under Unai Emery, making 20 goal contributions across all competitions, with seven of those coming in just 11 Champions League appearances, as per Transfermarkt.
Would Danjuma be a good signing for West Ham?
The forward, who is versatile and can play either on the wing or down the middle, is clearly used to performing on the world stage, and with West Ham having ambitions to get back to the Europa League, it could be a match made in heaven.
