January 25, (THEWILL) – Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the hijack of Everton’s transfer for forward, Arnaut Danjuma.

The Dutch international was set to join the struggling Merseyside club, but with the paperwork for the deal remaining incomplete, Spurs made a last-ditch move for Danjuma.

The 25-year-old has now joined Tottenham on loan until the end of the season and will provide competition for Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and former Everton talisman, Richarlison, in attack as Spurs look to secure a place in the top four.

Danjuma, who was relegated from the English Premier League with Bournemouth in 2020, emerged as a regular goal threat in Villarreal. He has scored 22 goals in 51 appearances for the Yellow Submarine and is one of just two players in La Liga, the other being Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior, to hit double figures for goals with both feet.

Danjuma’s decision to join Tottenham represents another blow for crisis club Everton, who sacked Frank Lampard on Monday and have been linked with Marcelo Bielsa, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Sean Dyche in their search for Lampard’s successor. Tottenham, meanwhile, is hoping to make further additions in what remains of the transfer window, with Sporting CP right-back Pedro Porro reportedly a target.
