Suara.com – Striker Arnaut Danjuma is rumored to be staying at Spanish League side Villarreal in this summer’s transfer market, although several clubs are interested.
Quoted from Football Espana, Wednesday (27/7/2022), it is believed that Danjuma chose to stay at Villarreal because he wanted to ensure constant playing time because he was aiming to be included in the Dutch national team squad at the 2022 World Cup Qatar.
Currently Danjuma last played for the Dutch national team on March 26, 2022, when they faced Denmark in a friendly match and recorded 13 minutes of playing time.
In the UEFA Nations League competition last month, the player whose full name is Arnaut Danjuma Adam Groeneveld did not take part in the Dutch national team squad because he had to be sidelined due to a muscle problem.

Some time ago, Danjuma had been linked with Premier League clubs such as West Ham and Liverpool, but until now these rumors have not developed further, especially since the Reds have secured the services of striker Darwin Nunez and the Hammers have secured Gianluca Scamacca.
In the player transfer market this summer, Danjuma became one of the attackers who was often linked with several clubs after his brilliant performances with Villarreal last season.
Last season, Danjuma made 34 appearances in various competitions for Villarreal and scored 16 goals and four assists from 2,384 minutes played. In addition, he also brought Villarreal to seventh place in the Spanish League and reached the semifinals of the Champions League.
The 25-year-old player was brought in by Villarreal from Bournemouth in August 2021 for a transfer fee of 23.5 million euros or around Rp. 365 billion. The Nigerian descent player started his career with the PSV Eindhoven youth team in 2008.
