Villarreal are looking to offload Liverpool target Arnaut Danjuma this summer.
The club is “happy to do business” despite exceeding expectations last season by making the UEFA Champions League semifinals, according to The Express.
After finishing seventh in La Liga, the Spanish team missed out on European qualification and are looking to raise funds as a result.
West Ham had been interested in him, but negotiations have broken down because the forward wants to move to Anfield.
This summer, Liverpool has already brought in some attacking potentials, including Darwin Nunez and Fulham starlet Fabio Carvalho.
The Reds did, however, lose Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi, and star forward Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich.
Dajuma’s energetic and powerful style of play could be a perfect replacement for Mane on the left wing which was a cornerstone of Klopp’s success in his reign at Anfield.
The left flank position is now occupied by Luis Diaz, a January signing, but Danjuma, a 25-year-old Columbian, might be the ideal backup and would only cost about £34 million (€39 million).
The former Bournemouth winger scored 16 goals and dished out four assists in a season where injuries played the frustrating part.
He may give Dias real competition and present an alternate option with Nunez and Jota playing the main striking roles.
When speaking to Ziggo Sport via Voetbal Primeur, he had mentioned Liverpool’s interest, saying: “I have been informed that Liverpool followed me closely.
“I’ll never lie, I think it’s a bad trait if you’re not ambitious. And if a club were to come along that offers me a higher platform to play, I should always consider that”.
Given the level of success the Reds have had under Jurgen Klopp, it is not surprising that he would jump at a chance to play for Liverpool.
