Bid ready – Liverpool are prepared to make an offer to sign Champions League star but must increase it to €50m – new report

Liverpool have reportedly prepared an offer of €45m to sign Arnaut Danjuma but must increase it by €5m to twist Villarreal’s arm into saying goodbye to their new signing.

It was only six months ago that the Yellow Submarine signed the Dutchman for a fee that was reported to be in the region of £21.5m (€25.7m) but they could be tempted to let him go for double their money.

On Tuesday, we covered a report from Fichajes that claims Liverpool have prepared an offer of €45million but that might not be enough.

A new report from Football Espana, who cite AS, claims that Villarreal would be tempted by an offer worth double their initial investment into the winger which would require the Reds to up their offer by €5m (£4.1m).

The former Cherries forward has been in fine form in the Champions League this season and would be a fantastic addition to Jurgen Klopp’s lineup.

The German was interested in the summer but Villarreal acted quickest and snapped him up and could no make a tidy profit.


He’s got 9 goals and 2 assists this season with 4 goals and 1 assist coming in Europe for the La Liga outfit and with a Round of 16 clash against Juventus on its way, if Liverpool don’t sign him as is the likeliest outcome this month, he will be relishing the chance to knock out the Italian giants.

He would provide some excellent competition for Sadio Mane and wouldn’t look out of place in the Reds’ starting XI with his pace, dribbling ability and finishing more than good enough to punish Premier League sides.
