Report: Arnaut Danjuma wanted by Wolfsburg; player made Leeds United admission this week
Wolfsburg are apparently keen on signing Bournemouth winger Arnaut Danjuma this summer, according to reports from Voetbal this weekend.
Danjuma was one of the stars of the show for Bournemouth last season as they narrowly missed out on promotion. The winger hit 17 goals for the Cherries, adding a further seven assists along the way.
Interestingly, Danjuma admitted this week that he’d like a move to a club like Leeds United. As covered on TBR, there is no concrete interest from Leeds as yet, despite his admission.
However, there is concrete interest from Germany, it seems. Voetbal suggest that Wolfsburg could be preparing a move for the 24-year-old. Danjuma is likely to demand a decent fee if he does leave.
Bournemouth will be open to selling but only at the right price. The Cherries’ lack of promotion means they’ll need to cut costs somewhere.
Players like Danjuma, then, could be on the chopping block should someone put up the right amount of cash.
Wolfsburg are managed by former Netherlands midfielder, Mark Van Bommel. Having played for his country twice, it’s clear that Danjuma has clearly caught the eye of Van Bommel along the way.
Danjuma likely to cost a fair bit, but should Leeds make a move?
A lot could depend on how much Bournemouth will accept here. Despite the comments from Danjuma, there’s no sign as yet of Leeds actually holding an interest.
However, that could change if the club gets wind that the winger is available for a bargain price. That, of course, seems unlikely. But you never know in football.
Danjuma would suit Leeds, in all fairness. He’s quick, has an eye for a goal, and can play wide or as a ten if needed. That’s something Marcelo Bielsa needs in his ranks.
For now, though, it seems unlikely that Danjuma will wind up at Elland Road just yet.
