Tottenham have arranged a medical for potential loan signing Arnaut Danjuma, hoping to steal the Villarreal winger from Everton.
On Monday, Sky Sports News reported that Danjuma would join managerless Everton on Tuesday. Despite the dismissal of Frank Lampard, who is a key role in the deal, the move is still in expectation to go ahead.
However, the Dutch international is now on his way to London to meet with Tottenham, and the club has scheduled a medical for Tuesday evening.
Sky Sports News is attempting to confirm whether any deal will include a buy option or obligation.
Despite more attractive offers and interest elsewhere, the 25-year-old decided to join Everton. He was aware of the club’s Premier League challenge in the midst of off-field turmoil, but he wanted to put himself to the test and take risks.
The loan arrangement with Everton is going to be a straightforward loan up until the end of the current campaign, with no option or requirement to buy.
Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest also showing interest in signing Danjuma after Villarreal granted him permission to speak with clubs, sparking further interest.
Everton are also keeping interest in Marseille striker Bamba Dieng, who’s on the verge of joining Leeds United on Deadline Day last summer only for Nice to come in with a better offer and the deal to fall through after the 22-year-old striker failed a medical.
Marseille is attempting to strike a deal with Lorient in which Dieng plus cash would go to Lorient and Terem Moffi would go to Marseille.
