West Ham hold talks with Villarreal over Arnaut Danjuma

West Ham United are holding talks for Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma.

The Dutchman is a coveted man after his stellar performances in Europe this season, attracting interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

West Ham are trying to beat their Premier League competition by initiating talks with Villarreal, per the Daily Mail.

The 25-year old, who scored 17 goals last season, has Premier League experience from his time with Bournemouth.

Danjuma has admitted that he would 'consider' leaving Villarreal if a big move presented itself.

He told Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport: "I was informed that Liverpool were following me closely.

"I have never had contacts with clubs or anything like that during the season - I always know about the situation after the season.

"I will never lie and I think it's a bad quality if you are not ambitious.

"If a club came along that offered me a higher platform to play on sport-wise, I would always have to consider it."
