Liverpool are reportedly among the clubs that are showing an interest in 24-year-old Dutch forward Arnaut Danjuma this summer.
According to a report by Spanish publication MARCA, Arnaut Danjuma is the subject of interest from Liverpool over a move in the summer transfer window. The 24-year-old Dutch forward could be set to leave Bournemouth, with Villarreal also hot on his trails.
Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld joined Bournemouth from Club Brugge in the summer of 2019 and has since progressed leaps and bounds at Dean Court. While he blew hot and cold in his maiden campaign with the Cherries, the 24-year-old was one of the shining lights for the club last term, as they bid to return to the Premier League, albeit unsuccessfully so.
In 37 appearances across all competitions, the 24-year-old managed a return of 17 goals and eight assists, and his exploits seem to have captured the attention of some of the biggest clubs across Europe. As things stand, Liverpool are among his suitors in the ongoing transfer window.
Liverpool are in the market for an attacking reinforcement this summer amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Xherdan Shaqiri. The Swiss international has recently claimed that the Reds will not stand in his way this summer as he seeks a move elsewhere in search of regular game-time.
With Divock Origi also reportedly on the exit trail, Liverpool can do with a versatile forward, with Mikkel Damsgaard among the options being considered, to that end. And Danjuma is a viable target for the Premier League heavyweights as well, as they look to bolster their attack.
Another major reason why Liverpool are keen on signing a forward this summer is the fact that Jurgen Klopp will be bereft of the services of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane at the turn of the year due to their participation in the Africa Cup of Nations. So, signing someone like Danjuma, who has been in fine touch in recent times, could be a masterstroke.
Liverpool, though, are not the only club in the UEFA Champions League pursuing a deal for the Dutch forward, who is also being courted by Villarreal this summer. The report also adds that a few other Premier League clubs want Danjuma, although it remains to be seen if the 24-year-old has his head turned by the interest from Liverpool.
