Liverpool are unlikely to make a summer push to sign Villarreal star Arnaut Danjuma ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
According to Goal, Premier League giants Liverpool are unlikely to make a move to sign Villarreal star Arnaut Danjuma in the 2022 summer transfer window.
The Dutch international joined the Yellow Submarine after a two-year spell at Bournemouth and is now showing his match-winning skills regularly. He has so far scored 14 goals and assisted four more in just 29 appearances for the Spanish side.
Unai Emery’s team have built upon their UEFA Europa League success from last season and are currently battling for a spot in the Champions League semi-finals. Danjuma was the hero in the first leg of the quarter-final, scoring the winner against Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-old appears to have taken his game to the next level in La Liga. This has attracted interest from the likes of Liverpool among others. The Reds remain keen on the Dutchman but appear unwilling to make a move to land him just yet.
Danjuma can play anywhere along the frontline and it is easy to see him fit well in Jurgen Klopp’s fluid frontline at Liverpool. His addition would add further pace and directness to an already stacked Liverpool attack. However, they are unlikely to pursue him ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Klopp’s side are flying high this term and are in the hunt to land an unprecedented quadruple. An overwhelming reason for their success has been the relentless attack that blows away opposition defences. It was strengthened further last January following the addition of Luis Diaz.
The Colombian has taken to the club like a fish to water and is already earning rave reviews for his performances. With youngster Fabio Carvalho en route to Anfield, Klopp has quality and quantity at his disposal ahead of the next season.
The likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are getting older but continue to impress and have plenty of years left in them. Given the options already at his disposal, it is difficult to see Klopp pursue Danjuma unless a senior attacker departs the club in the summer.
As things stand, the Reds do not need Danjuma and are better off adding some young blood to their midfield. Whether that will prove to be the case or the Merseysiders will seek to add yet another winger to their stacked attacking roster remains to be seen.
