West Ham United supporters have been handed a significant update on the club’s pursuit of Villarreal star Arnaut Danjuma.
The Lowdown: West Ham eye Danjuma move…
Irons head coach David Moyes is now seeking to upgrade his attacking options following the arrivals of Nayef Aguerd from Rennes and Alphonse Areola from Paris-Saint Germain on a permanent deal.
Which forward do West Ham need to sign?
As per reliable reports, Danjuma is one forward who has been heavily linked with a move to Rush Green over the last 48 hours.
The Latest: Journalist shares Danjuma update…
He explained (via Twitter): “Fast moving story but now told #WHUFC backing away from Danjuma. Was offered to the club & an approach was made, pending approval from David Moyes and management – but they have concerns. Deal unlikely as of now.”
The Verdict: Blow for West Ham?
Given the Dutchman’s obvious quality, this could be one that Moyes and co might want to revisit at a later date – provided that another club doesn’t poach Danjuma in the meantime.
As per WhoScored, the 25-year-old finished 2021/22 as Villarreal’s top scorer in La Liga (10) and averaged their most attempts at goal (2.7) per 90, perhaps indicating that he could be a real threat for West Ham.
