Transfer News: West Ham United hold talks with Villarreal for Liverpool target Arnaut Danjuma

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham United have held talks over signing Arnaut Danjuma from Villarreal this summer in what could come as a blow to Liverpool.

The Reds along with Manchester United and Arsenal have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old winger. But it seems that the Hammers want to take things forward and seal a deal for him this summer.

The Spanish club apparently wants around £37.5million for a player who has been a very important part of Unai Emery’s side since his move from Bournemouth. West Ham are keeping themselves busy this summer.

David Moyes is looking to bring in six players before the end of the window, of which Danjuma could be one. LFC got a first-hand viewing of the Holland attacker in the UEFA Champions League this season.

Should LFC go for Danjuma?

The Reds faced the Yellow Submarines in the semi-final of the competition and emerged victorious on aggregate. At 25, he presents himself as a very good option for a top team like Liverpool for the present and future.

Mohamed Salah’s contract is entering its final year while Sadio Mane has already joined Bayern Munich. Luis Diaz was signed last January but we could always use another quality winger in case Mo leaves.

If the former Chelsea winger renews his deal, then it would be great news for the Reds. But if not, we can’t count on Darwin Nunez, our big-money signing from SL Benfica, to replace him on the flanks. If our eyes are still set on Danjuma, we must hurry.

The Hammers could mean business and if they really have made the first step towards signing the ex-Club Brugge forward, then we can’t afford to sit idle.
