£27m ace open to Tottenham Hotspur future – on one condition
Tottenham Hotspur loanee Arnaut Danjuma is open to staying at the club this summer – if he is given first-team football.
Arnaut Danjuma could still commit his future to Tottenham Hotspur as long as he plays regularly.
That is according to Football London, who claim that Danjuma has ‘settled in well’ since joining Tottenham in January.
Spurs pounced to hijack Everton’s move for Danjuma, taking him on loan from Villarreal until the end of the season.
The Times reported in January that Tottenham hold a £27million option to buy Danjuma this summer.
Danjuma is thought to be open to the move – but only on one condition.
The Dutchman will only commit to Tottenham if they can promise him regular playing time moving forward.
Danjuma likely realises that he would be in real danger of being stuck on the Tottenham bench.
Danjuma has started just one Premier League game and come off the bench eight times, totalling only 163 minutes.
That just isn’t enough for the 26-year-old and Tottenham would have to make some promises to keep Danjuma.
Danjuma may be better off leaving Tottenham
It all started so well for Danjuma, scoring on his debut against Preston North End in the FA Cup.
However, first-team minutes just haven’t been forthcoming on a regular basis.
Tottenham have inexplicably given minutes to Lucas Moura instead, even though they knew the Brazilian was leaving.
Danjuma prefers to play down the left flank, where Son Heung-min is almost undroppable in this Spurs side.
That means that Danjuma would probably face a similar role moving forward if he does sign permanently, operating as Son’s backup.
Other Premier League clubs would surely want to sign Danjuma and give him a more important role moving forward.
That has to be the focus for Danjuma this summer, especially after turning down almost certain first-team football at Everton for a bench role at Spurs.
