Villarreal,Bournemouth agree £21.3m deal for Danjuma



Villarreal have agreed to sign Nigerian-born Bournemouth winger Arnaut Danjuma in a deal that could total £21.3m.

Danjuma will travel to Spain to complete a medical with the Europa League winners.

The 24-year-old has agreed on personal terms with Villarreal, who finished seventh in La Liga last season.

Danjuma scored 15 goals in the Championship last season as Bournemouth made the play-offs, but missed out on promotion back to the Premier League after losing to Brentford in the semi-finals.

The Dutchman arrived at the Vitality Stadium in 2019 from Eredivisie side NEC Nijmegen and made 14 appearances under Eddie Howe in the Premier League before Bournemouth were relegated last summer.

Danjuma joined Premier League club AFC Bournemouth for a fee of £13.7 million in 2019 signing a long-term contract. He made his debut for Bournemouth as a substitute in an EFL Cup tie against Burton Albion on 25 September 2019.

He scored his first goal for Bournemouth in a 3–2 win against Blackburn Rovers on 12 September 2020. After ten goal contributions in a month, Danjuma was awarded the Championship Player of the Month award for April 2021.

On 21 May 2021, Danjuma was awarded the Bournemouth Player of the Year award after receiving 40% of the supporters’ vote, narrowly beating Asmir Begovic who had 38% of the vote.
