West Ham forward target Arnaut Danjuma has this evening flown to London for transfer talks with clubs over a move claims journalist David Ornstein.

Hammers fans who followed the summer window will remember the links to ex Bournemouth star Danjuma well.

The likes of The Guardian claimed West Ham were pushing hard to sign the Villarreal man.

The reported move quickly became a saga of claim and counter claim – as so often seems to be the way with West Ham.

A host of reports claimed the deal was all but done before a West Ham insider told Claret and Hugh that was not the case because Moyes was ‘not convinced’ by the player.

And The Daily Mail also stated that Moyes pulled the plug on a move for Danjuma after deciding he isn’t the best fit for the Hammers.

This season the attacker, who can play on both wings and up front, has started just six games in La Liga scoring two goals.

Danjuma has been linked with a return to the Premier League again this month with West Ham, Everton and Bournemouth mentioned as possible destinations.

Journalist Ignazio Genuardi and other several other sources claim West Ham remain interested and Villarreal have been awaiting an offer from the Hammers for Danjuma.

Now West Ham forward target Danjuma has flown to London for transfer talks with clubs over a move claims journalist Ornstein.

“Arnaut Danjuma has arrived in the UK after being given permission by Villarreal to hold talks with clubs about a loan move in January,” Ornstein reports for The Athletic.

“The 25-year-old forward is available to leave the La Liga side on a temporary basis, although an option or obligation to buy may be included. A number of teams from the Premier League and elsewhere in Europe are interested in signing the Netherlands international.”

It is claimed Danjuma was allowed to fly to London on Saturday in a bid to resolve his future after the alleged West Ham target was an unused sub in Villarreal’s draw with Celta Vigo on Friday.

Whether one of the clubs the 25-year-old is set for talks with is West Ham remains to be seen.

In reports earlier this week, Bournemouth were named as favourites to sign the Dutchman.
