The 25-year-old is now set to join Conte’s side in a loan deal from LaLiga club, Villarreal.

Danjuma joined Villarreal from Bournemouth in August 2021 for a deal reportedly worth £21.3m and he went on to make 51 appearances, scoring 22 goals for the Spanish side.

The forward made his debut for the Dutch national team in 2018 and has recorded six appearances, scoring two goals.

Spurs currently sit fifth in the Premier League and have an upcoming clash against AC Milan in the Champions League next month.

Squad depth will certainly be crucial as Conte’s side battle it out across three competitions.

Tottenham face Preston North End away at Deepdale in the fourth round of the FA Cup this weekend.
