Nigeria trying to ‘steal’ Bournemouth star Arnaut Danjuma from Holland

NIGERIA are trying to persuade Bournemouth star Arnaut Danjuma to switch allegiances from the Netherlands.

Danjuma, 24, was born in Lagos to a Nigerian mother and Dutch father.

He moved to Holland aged four and eventually joined PSV’s academy.

The forward won two caps for the Oranje in 2018 against Germany in the Nations League and a friendly versus Belgium in which he scored.

A rule change was approved by Fifa in September meaning players can switch countries if they have played no more than three competitive games.

It would allow Danjuma to play for the Super Eagles despite his Nations League appearance.

The forward, who joined the Cherries from Club Brugge in 2019 for £13.7million, has seven league goals in the Championship this season.

The most recent came in Saturday’s fiery 1-0 victory over Watford at the Vitality Stadium.

Danjuma’s strike gave the Cherries the lead with just under half an hour to play.

But all hell broke lose deep into stoppage time.
