Fichajes.net reporter Ekrem Konur has claimed in a tweet that Liverpool “are expected to start talks” over the potential transfer of Bournemouth’s Arnaut Danjuma.
The forward enjoyed a remarkable campaign in the Championship last term, registering 22 goal contributions 33 league appearances.

The Merseysiders are thought to be on the lookout for a new attacker and a midfield replacement for Gini Wijnaldum to bolster the squad ahead of the impending campaign.
This does come from the same journalist who claimed that we rejected a £10m bid from Wolves for Divock Origi, a claim that has since been rubbished by James Pearce of The Athletic, so it may be one taking with a pinch of salt.
With Liverpool yet to agree further exits to free up space in the non-homegrown quota, however, a move for Danjuma remains highly unlikely.
Xherdan Shaqiri is said to remain keen on an Anfield exit but we’d still need another non-homegrown star (one of Loris Karius and co.) to depart in order to free up a spot.
The Dutchman’s goal record nonetheless does make him stand out as an interesting potential option for the recruitment team to keep in mind as and when space frees up.
