EFL pundit Clinton Morrison has suggested that Bournemouth forward Arnaut Danjuma is destined to be playing in the Premier League next season whatever division the Cherries happen to be playing in.
Danjuma has been one of the most influential performers for Bournemouth this season since their relegation from the Premier League, with the attacker managing to fire home an impressive tally of 13 goals and six assists in his 28 Championship appearances. That has seen him help Jonathan Woodgate’s side stay in the mix for the top-six and kept alive their promotion hopes.
The 24-year-old’s form has already seen him start to attract transfer interest from Premier League clubs ahead of the summer, with both Brighton and Southampton having been linked with potential moves for him. While Woodgate has recently suggested that he believes Danjuma could go as far as he wants to in the game if he shows the right attitude to develop his game.
Are these 17 facts about AFC Bournemouth’s club badge true or false?
Speaking on EFL on Quest, Morrison has insisted that Danjuma’s form and quality means that he will be playing in the Premier League next season and believes that he will be able to get a move if the Cherries miss out on promotion.
He said: “Danjuma is an excellent player, whatever happens, he will be playing Premier League football next year, whether it’s with Bournemouth or without them, he’s an exceptional talent.”
You can see why Morrison would believe Danjuma is destined for the Premier League next term, and it would be hard to imagine Bournemouth being able to keep hold of him off the back of such a strong season should they fail to get themselves promoted via the play-offs. The 24-year-old is going to be key as to whether they can first finish in the top-six and then win the play-offs.
Danjuma did not manage to impress straight away in the Premier League last term with the Cherries, but he has now had a year in the Championship to build up his confidence levels and show his class. He should be a different proposition now in the top-flight and he would be an excellent addition for a number of sides in and around that mid-table are you feel.
Selling players might well be important for the Cherries in the summer if they are unable to get themselves promoted. They have a lot of sellable assets and Danjuma will be one of their main ones to try and make a lot of money on. That shows how well he has been performing this term and he deserves a lot of credit for his game has come in this term.
