Everton Likely to Beat Milan in Race to Capture Danjuma

Milan are on the verge of missing out on Arnaut Danjuma as Everton overtook them. The Toffees were in contention to sign him last January, but Tottenham pipped them at the post. However, the Spurs didn’t buy him out following the loan spell.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the deal is about to be completed. Despite his previous negotiation with the Rossoneri, the player is keener on going back to the Premier League.

Per Relevo, Danjuma reached an agreement with Milan on personal terms, but Villarreal wanted an obligation to buy, something Everton have better chances of agreeing to. Instead, the Rossoneri sought a low-cost deal to round out their attack.

In addition, El Submarino Amarillo asked for a €5M fee to offset the striker’s amortization. The Italian side will have to pivot toward different options for their attack. They continue to negotiate for his teammate Samuel Chukwueze, La Repubblica informs. They won’t sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang either.

Our Take on Milan, Danjuma, and Everton

It would have been an interesting signing since he could have provided depth in multiple roles and has the ideal characteristics of a super-sub. Plus, he’s not extra-EU, unlike their other targets. But the conditions were indeed getting a bit too expensive, and it would have no longer been a flier. The turn of events ensures they’ll bring in two forwards unless Lorenzo Colombo shines in the preseason.
