Report: Everton now showing the most interest in signing ‘exceptional’ player who rejected West Ham last summer

El Periódico Mediterráneo reports that Everton are now showing the most interest in signing Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma – a player who rejected West Ham United last summer. 

Frank Lampard will be hoping to bolster his attacking options this month after the Toffees have struggled in the final third this season. 

Everton have only managed to find the back of the net 14 times in the Premier League this season, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin struggling to recapture his scoring touch after being hampered by injuries. 

Of course, Lampard brought in Neal Maupay over the summer but with the club sitting in the relegation zone, they will need to bring someone capable of providing in the final third. 

Danjuma was heavily linked with a move to West Ham over the summer. But the 25-year-old turned down the opportunity to join former Toffees boss David Moyes, according to Goal.com

Now, Everton are seemingly looking to make their move to bring the centre-forward to Goodison Park.

Everton most interested in signing Danjuma 

El Periódico Mediterráneo reports that Everton are currently showing the most interest in signing Danjuma this month. 

The Toffees are looking to bring the forward in on a loan deal until the end of the season, with an option to buy him this summer. 

The outlet notes that this would suit all parties involved, with Villarreal looking to reduce their wage bill and Danjuma has his sights set on a move to a ‘bigger club’.

Danjuma has bagged six goals in 17 appearances for the La Liga outfit this season, after netting 16 times during the last campaign. 

The ‘exceptional’ forward was a standout performer under their former boss Unai Emery and played a key role in the club reaching their first ever Champions League semi-final last season. 

The Dutchman would certainly provide Lampard’s side with more cutting edge in the final third and it seems like a low risk deal for Everton as there would be no obligation to buy the player.
