The Dutch international has revealed he has unfinished business in the Premier League after the Villarreal striker confirmed that his Team has informed him of Liverpool’s interest in signing the 25 years old this summer.
Villareal signed Danjuma from AFC Bournemouth from the Championship in 2021 for €25 million. Arnaut Danjuma had an impressive first season with Villarreal helping them reach the semi-finals of the Champions League and help the yellow submarine qualify for the Europa League next season.
The 25 years old Dutch international scored 16 goals and provided 4 assists in 34 appearances for Villarreal including 6 goals in 11 Champions League appearances. Danjuma earlier this month had confirmed Liverpool’s interest.
In an interview with Ziggo Sports, He said: “I was informed that Liverpool was following me closely.
“I have never had contacts with clubs or anything like that during the season – I always know about the situation after the season.
“I will never lie and I think it’s a bad quality if you are not ambitious.
“If a club came along that offered me a higher platform to play on sport-wise, I would always have to consider it.”
Manchester United is also reported to be following the situation of Danjuma.
What did Danjuma say about being linked with a return to the Premier?
In an interview with Sky Sports, Danjuma said: “It’s a bit of a funny story, to be fair.
“We’ve all read what has been said in the press, but I am a quick learner. I interviewed Holland saying I’m aware of the interest. They asked me if I was aware of it and I am, as everyone is. I’m aware of it, you are aware of it because it has been in the press. My phone went off all the time.
“In that sense, I am aware of it because of the media but I never actually confirmed the interest from Liverpool because the only one that confirms it to me is my team. I haven’t heard anything from my team and as it stands now, I am enjoying my football at Villarreal. I am really happy there. We had a fantastic season.
“Unai Emery has been fantastic to me. The striking coach has been fantastic to me. The entire club has been unbelievable to me so I’d never in that way downgrade the club I’m playing for.
Danjuma added: “There is unfinished business for me in England.
“If you look back to the reasons why I joined Bournemouth initially it was for me to play Premier League football.”
