Tottenham have made a late move to sign Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal despite the winger being on the verge of joining Everton.
Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Danjuma would join managerless Everton on Tuesday. The move was still expected to go through despite the sacking of Frank Lampard, who played a key role in the deal.
However, the Netherlands international is now travelling to London to hold talks with Spurs.
The 25-year-old had decided to join Everton despite there being more lucrative offers and interest elsewhere. He was aware of the challenge facing the club in the Premier League amid off-field chaos but wanted to test himself and take risks.
The deal with Everton was set to be a straight loan until the end of the season with no option or obligation to buy.
Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest were keen on bringing Danjuma in after Villarreal granted him permission to speak to clubs which generated further interest.
Tottenham remain in talks to sign Porro
Tottenham remain in talks with Sporting over a potential deal for right-back Pedro Porro.
Spurs have stepped up their interest in signing him after initially cooling it due to Sporting’s insistence on paying his release clause in full and up front.
Signing a new right wing-back has been a priority for Antonio Conte in January and they want to sign Porro before the deadline.
