Bournemouth starlet Arnaut Danjuma award ‘delaying’ potential suitors
Bournemouth’s £ 35million prize for Arnaut Danjuma puts off potential suitors, according to The Sun on Sunday (07/18.21, p. 61).
Bournemouth are looking to get rid of a number of their top earners to help balance the books this summer.
Danjuma, who is 24, has had an impressive past season and has a high rating.
He has been linked with various clubs this summer, with The Sun reporting Premier League duo West Ham United and Southampton are excited.

However, his price is proving to be too high at the moment for teams wishing to take him away from Bournemouth.
Danjuma joined the Cherries in 2019 and struggled in his debut season as they were relegated from the top flight.
The Netherlands international, however, found his marks last season and scored 17 goals in all competitions.

He won the Bournemouth Player of the Season title, but it is not yet clear whether he will still be at the club for the next campaign.
Danjuma was influential for Bournemouth last season and they won’t want to lose him this summer.
However, they need to cut costs and are likely to let it go if its valuation is met.
Cherries might need to lower it slightly to generate interest in it.
Southampton and West Ham are linked, but Danjuma is believed to be attracting interest from various clubs across Europe.
