Transfer insider Dean Jones believes Tottenham’s January signing Arnaut Danjuma may not play for the club again.
Arnaut Danjuma signed for Spurs on loan from Villareal in January but has struggled to get playing time since his move.
Danjuma had been on the verge of joining Everton mere days earlier, and the transfer had even reached an advanced stage.
The player had undergone a medical at Goodison Park and had even performed pre-emptive club media duties according to FourFourTwo. However, everything collapsed after Frank Lampard was sacked as Everton’s manager on Monday.
Tottenham subsequently swooped in and hijacked the player right from under Everton’s noses.
But it just has not worked for him at Spurs. He was not given much opportunities under then manager Antonio Conte who had admitted in one of his press conferences it was the club that wanted to sign him, indicating that he was not the Italian’s preferred choice for an attacker as he was hoping to sign a proper No 10.
And now transfer insider Dean Jones has claimed that he believes Spurs won’t be seeing him again next season despite the club having an option to buy him on a permanent deal for €30m (£27m).
Speaking to GiveMeSport,, he said:
“Yeah it was a strange one that just hasn’t really worked out for him. I don’t think he’ll be seen again next season. It doesn’t seem to make much sense for him to hang around.”
The player has even recently admitted that his return to England has not gone how he was hoping it would. He also hinted his disappointment at the lack of opportunity given to him at Spurs.
He said (via Liverpool World):
“It is very difficult to sum up the season we’ve all had in words. Many highs and lows, yet I tried to give my all, anytime, at any moment for you all. An indifferent return to the Premier League for me. I’d be lying if I wasn’t disappointed with how the season ended for the club, the fans and me.
“I have proven and I know I have the ability to influence games and make a big impact, and if I could turn back the clocks and be given a chance to demonstrate that I would without question.”
