The 24-year-old enjoyed a wonderful season for the Championship club last term as he scored 17 goals and provided eight assists in just 37 appearances for the Cherries.
Unfortunately despite his individual numbers, Danjuma’s impact wasn’t enough to secure promotion for Bournemouth who missed out on automatic promotion, before being knocked out of the play-offs by eventual promotion-winners Brentford over two legs.
As a result it seems that a move away from the Vitality Stadium could be on the cards.
Reports from The Sun have claimed that Danjuma is attracting the attention of several Premier League clubs including both Southampton and West Ham United who are both keen on bringing the player to the Premier League.
However with Spanish side Villarreal having a formal offer rejected, it remains to be seen what the next step will be as his future remains a key talking point over the summer months.
It’s no surprise at all to see Arnaut Danjuma attracting such interest.
The player was wonderful to watch for Bournemouth last term and being honest he was absolutely crucial to the club’s journey to the play-offs.
In my opinion, Danjuma is too good to be playing in the Championship and so he will surely be considering his options as summer interest builds in his services.
Villarreal would be a good move for the player, but if anyone comes in from one of Europe’s top leagues then I’d expect him to consider it.
