It could save Lampard’s job
There is no doubt that Frank Lampard will be feeling the pressure as he heads into the Premier League clash with West Ham United this afternoon, however, the signing of Danjuma could be the linchpin in saving the manager’s job at Goodison Park.
The talented winger has been in the UK speaking with a number of clubs about a loan move ahead of the second half of the season including Nottingham Forest and his former club Bournemouth, but it now looks like he will imminently be announced as the latest player to join the relegation scrap on the blue side of Merseyside.
The Toffees are currently 19th in the top-flight table ahead of their game with the Hammers in East London, with just 15 points collected and 15 goals scored over their first 19 outings, so strengthening the attacking threat will be essential if they are to have any hope of retaining their Premier League status at the end of the campaign.
Over 217 career appearances, Danjuma has scored 73 goals and registered 36 assists with a goal contribution every 128 minutes so far – proving that he could be a hugely valuable asset to Lampard if he can continue his rate of consistency in front of goal.
