Tottenham fans could see Arnaut Danjuma score on his debut, although the new signing isn’t even ready.
Scoring the third goal in a 3-0 FA Cup win over Preston, the Dutchman greeted his new fans in the best of ways after two earlier efforts from Heung-min Son.
Signing up expertly after a withdrawal from Dejan Kulusevski, the recently signed loanee got off to a perfect start, just three days after fending off Everton to sign up in north London.
A Netherlands international, Danjuma was available on loan from Villarreal, a possibility Everton were delighted with, only for the 25-year-old to turn around.
He will now help Antonio Conte charge into the Champions League, and the early signs are impressive.
More so, giving pre-match commentary by Spurs assistant boss Cristian Stellini.
The Italian explained: “The only player that we realize might not be ready like the others is Arnaut because he’s a new player.
“We are happy, but we have to give him time to figure everything out.”
But the winger, who made the Champions League semi-finals last season, looked more than ready, despite having played just one minute of football since January 3.
The extra competition up front also seemed to work as a wake-up call for Son, whose brace comes amid criticism from the Korean for failing to live up to last season’s high standards.
