Former Everton star Richarlison has now sent a two-word message to Arnaut Danjuma after the Dutch international signed for the Toffees.

Danjuma moved to Goodison Park in a season-long loan deal from Spanish side Villarreal, making him Everton’s second signing of the summer following Ashley Young’s free transfer.

Indeed, the 26-year-old took to Instagram after signing for the Blues and his ex-Spurs teammate Richarlison popped up in the comments to wish him ‘good luck’.

Danjuma posted: “The ink dries, the commitment is sealed, and the pursuit of excellence begins.”

In the comments section, Brazilian international Richarlison stated: “Good luck.”

Arnaut Danjuma has a second bite of the cherry at Everton

Richarlison was an Everton fan favourite until his £60m move to Spurs last summer, and a controversial January transfer made him and Arnaut Danjuma teammates for half a season.

Indeed, the Dutch international was set to join Everton on loan from Villarreal in January following the £45m sale of Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United.

However, the deal unexpectedly fell apart at the eleventh hour and the 26-year-old snubbed Everton in favour of a loan deal to Spurs.

Danjuma’s brief time in the capital was underwhelming during the second half of last season as he found minutes on the pitch limited.

The Dutch international made just 9 Premier League appearances out of a possible 17, scoring once during that time against his former club Bournemouth.

No doubt he will be utilised far more frequently at Goodison Park this season as Everton search for a solution to their creativity issues that plagued them last season.

Indeed, with just 34 Premier League goals all season, Sean Dyche must add firepower to his side this summer, and recruiting a player of Danjuma’s quality is a step in the right direction.

Danjuma will have a big job on his hands to win over the fans, though if his contribution is anything like Richarlison’s, no doubt he will become a favourite at Goodison Park.
