Target Danjuma ‘asks to leave’ & Kuyt takes first manager job – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool head into summer on a club level, but for many players it just keeps going with internationals for a couple of weeks. Any chance of a slight strain for some?!


Links resurface over Villarreal star Danjuma

Arnaut Danjuma was widely linked with a quick switch to Liverpool around six months ago, having signed for Villarreal only last summer.

It’s still a relatively short time to expect an even bigger jump, but reports in Spain today suggest he hasn’t adapted to the lifestyle over there – he certainly has taken to La Liga – and he wants to move back to England.

The Dutch winger was with Bournemouth previously and seemingly he has asked his current club to allow him to leave if a decent offer comes in – around €40m might be needed to land him.

Liverpool, Arsenal and United are all mentioned, plus PSG, but it’s the Reds who were closely looking at him before he even moved to Spain. One to consider along with Mane’s future…

  • Nothing says “we back our own players” quite like signing multiple new ones in the same area of the pitch, which is why United are intent on signing four defenders this summer including Carmo and Timber
  • And Newcastle are starting their Championship Manager summer by lashing out £26m on Reims striker Hugo Ekitike, who hit 10 in 24 in Ligue 1 this season. Only 17 more deals to go!
