Arnaut Danjuma is en route to Tottenham Hotspur for a medical ahead of a proposed loan move, after the north London club made a late attempt to scupper Everton’s bid for the Villarreal player.
Danjuma, 25, had looked close to a loan move to Everton and had undergone a medical on Saturday.
His switch to Merseyside was not formalised, however, with some paperwork needing to be completed.
That left the door open for Tottenham to make an 11th-hour play for the former Bournemouth man.
The Athletic reported earlier this month that Danjuma had arrived in the UK ahead to hold talks with clubs about a loan move away from Villarreal.
Bournemouth had also expressed interest in resigning the Netherlands international but Everton then emerged as frontrunners before Tottenham registered their interest.
Danjuma has scored 22 goals in 51 appearances for Villarreal since his move from Bournemouth in 2021.
He previously scored 17 goals in 52 appearances during his two-year spell at the Vitality Stadium.
Neither Everton nor Tottenham have yet made a January signing.
