In a recent interview with Football Transfer Tavern, renowned journalist Michael Bridge claimed that West Ham United are hoping to sign Arnaut Danjuma this summer. Bridge said,

“I heard whispers about West Ham looking as well. I think even Bournemouth fans know he’s not staying in the Championship, so they just need to get the right fee for him. Leeds have been mentioned as well, so yeah wait and see.”

Danjuma’s Productive Season In The EFL Championship

Danjuma had an impressive campaign at the Vitality Stadium as he managed to find some consistency in terms of his goal-scoring in the attacking end of the field. The 24-year-old banged in 17 goals and secured eight assists in 37 matches for the Cherries last season in all competitions.

The Lagos-born player established himself as a top performer at the Dorset club by averaging 2.1 shots, 1.5 key passes, 0.9 crosses and 1.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in the EFL Championship. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 77.6% in the English second division (stats via whoscored).

Danjuma has still got three years remaining in his contract with the Cherries, so the Hammers would have to make a sizable offer to bring him to the English capital before the start of the new season.

Will Danjuma Be The Right Fit For The Hammers?

Danjuma has decent pace under his belt and can complete some dangerous dribbles with the ball out on the wide areas. The Championship wing wizard can create some meaningful openings for others around him. He has also got a knack for finding space in the final third and can get a few shots in on-target.

The Dutch wing wizard added plenty of goals and assists to his game last season, so he could be a shrewd acquisition for the East London outfit in this off-season. He will add a lot of goals and creativity to the West Ham frontline and enhance the overall depth of David Moyes’ match-day squad.

Danjuma is good enough to rival Said Benrahma, Jarrod Bowen and Andriy Yarmolenko for a place in the Hammers’ starting XI next season. Therefore, the Bournemouth star will be a decent fit for the London giants as he could help them compete across all fronts over the next few years. At 24, Danjuma has his best years ahead of him which makes him a good, long-term option for West Ham to consider this summer.
