Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Arnaut Danjuma this summer despite his flop show at Tottenham.
Arnaut Danjuma has played under Unai Emery during their time together at Villarreal. And a report from Fichajes claims that the Aston Villa manager could be willing to sanction a €20 million move for the 26-year-old, despite his Tottenham flop show.
It is no secret that Aston Villa will have to bring in attacking reinforcements this summer. Danjuma could prove to be a quality acquisition for them. The 26-year-old is versatile enough to play anywhere across the front three, and he could be an asset for Emery.
Aston Villa have been overly dependent on Ollie Watkins for goals this season. But they need to add more goals and creativity to the side ahead of a European campaign next term. It has been an impressive campaign for Aston Villa, and they will look to build on it and push for trophies.
The West Midlands club will have to strengthen their squad adequately during the summer transfer window. But it remains to be seen whether they can sign the 26-year-old in the coming weeks.
Danjuma is not a key player for Villarreal, who could be tempted to cash in on him if an offer of €20 million is presented. The player was quite mediocre at Tottenham and he had an underwhelming spell at the north London club. Danjuma struggled for regular game time and was unable to showcase his qualities on a regular basis. He scored just twice in 12 games at Tottenham.
The 26-year-old has extensive experience of playing in English football, and he should be able to make an immediate impact at Aston Villa. He is likely to get plenty of first-team opportunities at the West Midlands club and the transfer it would be ideal for all parties. But the 26-year-old is not the only former Villarreal player Emery wants a reunion with, as Pau Torres is also a target.
Emery knows the player well, and he will be expected to get the best out of Danjuma. The 26-year-old attacker managed to score 16 goals in a season under the Spanish manager during their time together at Villarreal. He will feel that a move to Aston Villa could help him get his career back on track.
