Man United, Liverpool, Inter Milan, Roma queue up for Lagos-born La Liga sensation

Nearly half of the continent’s biggest spenders are seemingly lining up to snap up one of the revelations of the season in the Spanish top-flight

If reports coming out of Spain is anything to go by, Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma could be on his way to one of Europe’s most notable clubs.

Signed from Bournemouth for €17 million in August, Danjuma has had a sensational campaign for Villarreal in the Spanish La Liga and the UEFA Champions League.

The Dutch international, born in Lagos to a Nigerian mother, has scored ten goals and assisted three others in 23 Primera Division games.

In the Champions League, the 25-year-old has six goals and one assist in ten matches, including one of the goals that gave Villarreal an aggregate quarterfinal victory over Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

And according to Spanish publications Fichajes, a few English and Italian clubs are interested in signing the former Club Brugge winger.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton, and West Ham have been linked with a possible move for Danjuma in the summer.

Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma and Serie A champions Inter Milan have also been credited with an interest in the Lagos-born attacker.

In eight months, Danjuma has seen his market value more than double to €50 million (Transfermarkt), and interested suitors may need to cough out close to that fee before Villarreal sanction his departure.
