And the 24-year-old Holland international could become an instant hero if he does end up moving to the London Stadium this summer.

Danjuma scored against the Hammers’ old foes Millwall at The Den last night during a 4-1 win for the Cherries.

Millwall are West Ham’s oldest and fiercest rivals.

Both clubs were formed by dockers at shipyards on either side of the River Thames back in the late 1800’s.

The two clubs’ fortunes have been very different over the past couple of decades.

West Ham and Millwall rarely play each other any more.

 

The Hammers have played our bitter rivals just seven times since 2003. That hasn’t diminished the hatred that both sets of supporters have for each other, however.

Despite the fact that we don’t really need a winger, Danjuma would be a great signing for West Ham.

He has enjoyed a successful time at the Vitality Stadium this season with 15 goals and eight assists in 33 games for Bournemouth to his name (Transfermarkt).

Danjuma is a really lively winger. He possesses blistering pace and is really direct in his playing style.

The Bournemouth ace could be a very good signing for West Ham. and the fact that he has already done the business against Millwall could help him become an instant hero at the London Stadium.
