West Ham could make a big statement this summer if they manage to beat Liverpool to the signing of Bournemouth ace Arnaut Danjuma.
Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 24-year-old Cherries attacker to the London Stadium this summer according to a report from The Sun.
Meanwhile, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is keen on signing Danjuma as well according to 90 min.
Given the choice between West Ham and Liverpool, most people would think that Anfield would be a more attractive prospect than the London Stadium.
Certainly at the moment at least.
Time for West Ham to make a statement and beat Liverpool to Danjuma
The Holland international would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers.
Danjuma was in superb form for Bournemouth last season. The 24-year-old racked up 17 goals and eight assists in 37 games (Transfermarkt).
He has the ability to be a real game-changer and can play anywhere along the front-line.
With moves for Jesse Lingard and Matheus Pereira now highly unlikely to happen, Danjuma would be the ideal alternative.
Now, West Ham will have to go all out if we are to beat Liverpool in the race for the Dutchman.
One thing in our favour is that he will have more more chances to play regular first-team action at West Ham than he would at Liverpool.
Danjuma is available for around £21 million this summer according to a report from Marca.
That really is great value and should be a fee that the Hammers can easily afford.
Beating Liverpool to Danjuma won’t be easy, but we should at least try.
