PSV Eindhoven are looking to beat a host of Premier League clubs to Villarreal winger Arnaut Danjuma and bring him back to his native Netherlands this month, sources have confirmed 90 min.
The Dutch international forward spent much 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 is currently in England considering offers to return to the Premier League, having signed for Bournemouth for £14m in 2019.
Everton and Southampton are both keen on the 25-year-old, who played 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 led the chase so far.

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