Villarreal have reached an ‘agreement in principle’ with Bournemouth to take winger Arnaut Danjuma to Spain.
That’s according to El Periodico Mediterraneo, who have confirmed reports from England that a move is on the cards.
They report that Villarreal have reached an agreement with Bournemouth over Danjuma in a deal that will see them pay €20m for the Dutchman.
He will sign a five-year deal with the Spanish club after the two clubs spent more than a month on negotiations over a transfer.
The newspaper states the ‘tug of war’ between Bournemouth and Villarreal has been going on since the beginning of July when an initial €15m offer was rejected.
The Submarine has since been ‘patient’ in their approach, and Fernando Roig Negueroles, the club’s CEO, sent a new offer this week which the Cherries have now accepted.
According to the newspaper’s sources, Danjuma is already en route to Spain for a medical, after which he will sign a five year at his new club and become ‘one of the biggest’ purchases in the history of the club.
