After helping Nigeria destroy Sao Tome and Principe during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualifiers, striker Emmanuel Dennis is already looking ahead to the future.

He opened his international goal diary in the thumping 10-0 win for the Super Eagles on Monday.

Dennis played for Watford in the 2021/22 Premier League season and impressed for the Hornets.

The 24-year-old joined the Hornets in 2021 and was one of the few shining lights in what was a disappointing season as a whole at Vicarage Road. Dennis topped the Watford goalscoring charts and gave his side whatever little hope they had of avoiding relegation.

Now that the inevitable has come to pass, Dennis’s performances have found him several admirers in the English top flight. 10 goals and six assists in 35 games do not particularly stand out, but given the lack of service he had at Watford, it is a fine output.

The Nigerian international is primarily a centre-forward but is capable of playing anywhere along the frontline. A good dribbler, Dennis can thrive in a counter-attacking side and has also shown the tactical awareness of running into channels.

He wrote on Social Media: “End of a season full of ups and down. Wanna thank all the fans for always supporting. Time to get ready and come back better.”

Emmanuel Dennis also lists Zorya, Club Brugge and FC Cologne as his former clubs.
