Tottenham sign Danjuma, Everton’s top target from Villareal. Arnaut Danjuma, a former Villarreal attacker, has joined Tottenham Hotspur after almost moving to Everton on loan.
The center-forward for the Spurs was identified as the player on Wednesday.

Before Spurs reached a deal with Villareal last weekend, Danjuma had already finished his medicals with Merseyside Blue.
The 25-year-old was an absolute need for the Blues, who were in danger of being relegated and without a coach.
After Frank Lampard was fired on Monday, rumors claim that Arnaut’s decision to join Everton was mostly motivated by Lampard. But it was simple for Tottenham to sabotage the agreement.
For the first time since the 1950–51 campaign, Danjuma was still of the opinion that he could prevent Everton from being relegated to the English second level.
As Arsenal and Chelsea both took Leandro Trossard from Spurs, and as Spurs now transfer aggressively to Everton, the season of hijacking is in full swing.
Everton is now scorching hot despite being so close to completing the deal.
