Winger undergoes medical as Cherries close on deal

1 year ago admin

Bournemouth appear to be closing in on the capture of Club Brugge winger Arnaut Danjuma in a deal worth £13.7million.

The Cherries have been busy in the transfer market this summer when snapping up Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey and Philip Billing, and it looks as though Danjuma will be new arrival number four.

The 22-year-old is said to have already undergone his medical, and the finishing touches just need to be put to the deal before it is announced. Danjuma is a Nigerian-born Netherlands international and impressed with Brugge last season scoring six goals and providing four assists, form which caught the eye of Cherries scouts.

Boss Eddie Howe will be in no doubt that Danjuma is now ready to make the step up to the Premier League as Bournemouth look to improve on last season.

As well as adding new faces, the club have so far managed to keep hold of their star players, and if that remains the case before next week’s transfer deadline, they will look well set for a strong season.
