Tottenham have beaten Everton to land Dutch forward Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal.

The managerless Toffees were on the brink of sealing a deal for the versatile forward but fell short after North London launcheeeeed a last-minute move.

After concluding his transition to the season finale, Danjuma tweeted: “To dare is to do. Let’s work!”

Spurs are chasing Champions League qualification and sit just three points off the top four following Monday night’s win at Fulham.

They had been linked with Leandro Trossard and Mykhailo Mudryk before the two joined Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.

Antonio Conte has now turned to the 25-year-old Dutchman as he looks to strengthen his attacking options for the second half of the season.

Heung-Min Son, Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison and Lucas Moura are all struggling with injuries and the new signings will provide valuable depth.

Danjuma has Premier League experience from his time at Bournemouth but struggled to make an impact as the Cherries were relegated in 2019-20.

Spurs will be hoping he puts in a similar form to the following season, when he scored 15 goals in 33 Championship appearances to move to Spain.

He was one of the standout performers as the Yellow Submarine reached the Champions League semi-finals last seaaaaason, scoring six goals in 11 appearances.

Danjuma can play in the middle or wide and has two goals in six internationals, although he missed the trip to the Qatar World Cup.

Conte’s men are next in action on Saturday, when they travel to Preston in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
