Europa League champions Villarreal have agreed a €25m deal with AFC Bournemouth to sign 24-year-old winger Arnaut Danjuma, according to Sky Sports News (August 18, 12:01pm).

The Dutchman was one of the Cherries’ star players last term, scoring 15 goals and grabbing seven assists in 33 league appearances, before going on to score twice more in the play-off semi-finals in May.

However, that wasn’t enough to overcome eventual winners Brentford who won the tie 3-2 on aggregate – and with that – left Danjuma’s future at the Vitality Stadium in doubt.

Have Bournemouth won or lost more against Southampton?

He had been the subject of interest from Premier League quintet Everton, Wolves, West Ham United, Brighton and Hove Albion and Southampton over the summer as well as Unai Emery’s side.

But it was Villarreal who made the first move for his services, launching a £13m bid last month that was rejected by officials on the south coast.

After joining the Cherries for £13.7m back in 2019, with three years reported to be left on his current deal, this was a deal that was never going to be acceptable. But the Spanish side have seemingly upped their offer drastically and after having this latest bid accepted, they look set to welcome Danjuma to the Estadio de la Ceramica.

With Scott Parker’s side look set to rake in around €25m, but lose one of their best players in the process, we take a look at some of the latest Twitter reaction to this news from Bournemouth fans.
