According to Football Insider, Arnaut Danjuma and Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper have had face-to-face conversations about a prospective transfer to the City Ground.
Danjuma, who is 25 years old, moved from AFC Bournemouth to Villarreal in 2021. The international from the Netherlands, whose Transfermarkt worth is €35 million, has made 51 appearances for the La Liga team and contributed to 26 goals.
Danjuma had previously scored 17 goals in 52 goals for the Cherries. Clinton Morrison, a pundit, called him a “amazing talent.” He is primarily a center-forward but can can play deeper or out on the left.
In an update on Danjuma and Forest, FI writer Wayne Veysey stated that Cooper had “direct talks” over a potential transfer with the forward.
Aston Villa, Everton, and Tottenham are among the teams he names as showing interest, and he continues by saying that Forest and Bournemouth “feel sure they are now in the driving seat to land him by the January deadline.”
With summer signing Taiwo Awoniyi potentially sidelined for months due to injury, it appears that Forest will be adding attacking reinforcements to their lineup.
Emmanuel Dennis appears to be on the market as well, while Chris Wood of Newcastle is the subject of transfer rumors.
It would be fascinating to see if the Reds attempt to sign Danjuma in addition to the New Zealand international, since The Times reported that a loan move to Forest appears to be close.
Due to his ability to play deeper and on the left, he would provide Cooper a flexible option, so it may be interesting to watch.
