Villareal forward Arnaut Danjuma has signed a loan deal with Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of the season, OduNews reports.
There have been speculations that the 25-year-old Nigerian-born forward will join Everton before Tottenham made their interest known.
Danjuma will bolster Antonio Conte’s attacking option as he looks to lift fifth-placed Tottenham back into the Premier League’s top four after their recent struggles.
“We are delighted to announce the signing of Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal until the end of the 2022/23 season, subject to international clearance,” a statement on Tottenham’s website said on Wednesday.
Aside from Harry Kane, Tottenham’s forwards have struggled to hit top form, with Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison all dealing with injury issues at times.
Nigeria-born Danjuma could make his Tottenham debut in Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round tie at second-tier Preston.
He spent two years with the Cherries, scoring 17 goals in 52 games, before signing for La Liga side Villarreal in 2021.
