Tottenham have made their first signing of the January transfer window as Netherlands winger, Arnaut Danjuma joined on loan from Villarreal for the rest of the season.
Antonio Conte’s side swooped for Danjuma after the 25-year-old had looked set to join Premier League strugglers Everton.
He will give Conte another attacking option up front as he looks to lift Tottenham from fifth-place back to the top four in the Epl after their poor run of form.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal until the end of the 2022/23 season, subject to international clearance,” a statement on Tottenham’s website said on Wednesday.
Aside from Harry Kane, Tottenham’s forwards have struggled to hit top form, with Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison all dealing with injury issues at times.
The Nigeria-born player Danjuma could make his first debut for the club on Saturday for their FA Cup fourth round tie against Preston North End.
The 25-year-old had his fair share of the Premier League when he joined Bournemouth in 2019.
He spent two years with the Cherries, and he scored 17 goals in 52 games, before signing for the La Liga gaint Villarreal in 2021.
During his first season with the Spanish club, he was a key figure in a run to the Champions League semi-finals, scoring six goals in 11 appearances in the competition.
He also netted 10 times in 23 La Liga matches last season before scoring six goals in 17 games in all competitions this term.
