Fabrizio Romano explains how Everton are feeling about Spurs hijacking Danjuma deal

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that there is no mandatory permanent clause in Tottenham’s loan deal for Arnaut Danjuma, and that Everton are ‘furious’ about having their deal hijacked. 

Multiple publications (including The Athletic) reported on Tuesday evening that Tottenham sensationally swooped in to steal Everton’s deal for Danjuma just as the forward was about to sign for the Toffees.

It was explained that had completed his medical at Goodison Park and was about to put pen to paper on the paperwork when Spurs got involved. 

Villarreal have already revealed that there is a purchase option in the loan deal for Spurs, but Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that there will be no obligation to buy included in the transfer. 

He stated that Everton are ‘furious’ and ‘surprised’ that the deal has been hijacked by the Lilywhites at such a late stage. 

Spurs Web Opinion

While I understand why Conte wants another attacking option like Danjuma, given the injury to Lucas Moura and  Son’s form this season, I fail to understand why this move was appealing for the Dutchman. 

The likelihood is that he is not going to get much game time at Spurs over the coming months, and even though the North London club do have the option to make the deal permanent, I doubt they will exercise it.
