PSV Eindhoven are looking to beat a host of Premier League clubs to Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma and take him back to his native Netherlands this month, sources have confirmed to 90min.
The Dutch international forward spent a large part of his youth career in Eindhoven but left for NEC Nijmegen in 2016 before making his debut for the first-team.
Danjuma is now looking to leave Villarreal this month following Unai Emery’s departure to Aston Villa, and he is currently in England considering offers to move back to the Premier League, having previously been a £14m signing for Bournemouth in 2019.
Everton and Southampton are both keen on the 25-year-old, who had a starring role as Villarreal reached last season’s Champions League semi-finals. Emery has also shown an interest in reuniting with Danjuma at Villa, but his former club Bournemouth have been leading the chase so far.

However, 90min understands that PSV have now made an approach for Danjuma and the player is believed to be keen on playing for Ruud van Nistelrooy. The PSV boss is thought to see him as an ideal replacement for Cody Gakpo, who left for Liverpool earlier this month.
PSV have also been in talks with Chelsea over the possible sale of Noni Madueke. But they are believed to be looking to keep hold of the England Under-21 forward as they look to get their Eredivisie title charge back on track.
