Everton have been linked with a move for Arnaut Danjuma this summer, having missed out on the forward in January.

As reported by GiveMeSport, journalist Paul Brown still believes Arnaut Danjuma could be a hit at Goodison Park, despite opting to join Spurs instead and heading to White Hart Lane in the winter transfer window. Brown says that if Danjuma does now come to Merseyside and “immediately starts scoring goals, he would be welcomed with open arms. I also don’t think it’s terribly necessary really for the fans to be thrilled or not by the transfer.”

There have been reports of the Toffees considering a move for the Dutch attacker this summer. However, it would be understandable if some fans felt a little less than enthusiastic about the player who opted for Spurs over them, as reported by Sky Sports.

Should Everton go for Danjuma?

There is no room for such sentimentality in the transfer market. If Sean Dyche believes the 26-year-old can fire Everton clear of relegation trouble this season then he has to make a move. However, given Danjuma struggled to make an impact for Spurs, there’s little to suggest that he could be so transformative for Everton.

Prior to his temporary move to Spurs, Danjuma showed his quality in La Liga with Villarreal. If he could rediscover his best form under Dyche, Danjuma could be a very useful addition. There may well be better alternatives on the market this summer though. Dyche may be better off focusing his attentions on potential squad additions elsewhere.
