In a recent report, The Guardian stated that West Ham United are facing difficulties in signing Arnaut Danjuma from Villareal. It is understood that the Hammers have made a £34.5m bid for this Dutch winger but they are facing complications over personal terms which has made David Moyes look elsewhere.

Danjuma’s Campaign For Villareal Last Season

Danjuma had a solid campaign for Villareal as he performed exceptionally well at his highest level in the left-wing position. He fared well as he bagged eleven goals and provided three assists over 23 appearances the past season.

The Lagos-born talent managed to put up some awe-inspiring numbers on the board after averaging 2.7 shots, 0.7 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per game in the Spanish top-flight. He also managed to distribute the ball effectively as he completed 77% of his attempted passes in the La Liga(stats via whoscored).

What Should Be The Play For West Ham United Boss David Moyes?

Danjuma is an excellent finisher in front of the goal. He can make some clever turns inside the penalty box to get past defenders and find the back of the net. He can also make some decent runs down the left flank to find his teammates in front of the goal with his wide array of passing abilities.

At 25, his best years are still ahead of him and he could grow into an attacking threat under David Moyes. But now that the deal has fallen through due to several complications leading Moyes to drop the idea of bringing him to London Stadium, the West Ham Boss will be looking into other targets and Danjuma’s future hangs in the balance.

This comes as a huge blow to Villareal who had planned to make use of the money to bring in attacking reinforcements after selling the Dutch winger for a decent fee. The Hammers have focused their attention on Jesse Lingard and it is certain that they won’t be coming back for Arnaut Danjuma this off-season.
