Bournemouth demands revealed as Liverpool declare interest in winger
Bournemouth have set their asking price for Arnaut Danjuma this summer with Liverpool, one of the interested clubs, according to reports.
The Cherries missed their promotion to the Premier League after being beaten by Brentford in the play-offs, dooming them to a second consecutive league season.
Danjuma has scored 17 goals and assisted eight goals in all competitions during the 2020-21 campaign, with reports in June saying his performances have drawn the attention of Leicester, Lyon and Wolfsburg.

After joining Club Brugge in 2019, Danjuma has struggled to adjust to life in England, without scoring or assisting any goals in his 14 Premier League appearances.
However, a strong Championship campaign has made the 24-year-old property hot, and Bournemouth’s failure to be promoted could leave them with no choice but to cash in.
spanish edition Marca claim that Cherries require € 25million (£ 21.3million) for their winger and Liverpool are among the clubs interested.
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly looking to sign a new striker this summer from Liverpool with a number of players like Adama Traoré and Federico Chiesa already linked.
The newspaper is particularly focused on Villarreal’s interest in Danjuma, who is said to be “first on the options list” for the La Liga side.
Villarreal have already made an offer of € 15million for Danjuma but Bournemouth are unwilling to accept this for a player they paid € 16million for two years ago.
The championship team “re-evaluated him to the point that several Premiers [League] teams were interested in its services ”.
Bournemouth manager Scott Parker admitted a few days ago that there was a “possibility” Danjuma could leave this summer.
Parker said: “Right now he’s our player, like I said last time, if he was fit he would play.
“Of course I am not going to sit here and say if there is a chance that Arnie will leave the football club – there is – it has been well documented that there have been offers. for him, which were rejected.
“I’m sitting here thinking it’s possible Arnie may be leaving, but I know I’m sitting here knowing that if this offer isn’t the right one, Arnie will stay here and he will play a big part in what we do.
“Until we get close to that moment, I can’t be definitive on this.”
