Everton have reportedly now plotting a move to sign Emmanuel Dennis in the summer transfer window.
Despite his best efforts, the 24-year-old found himself relegated from the Premier League with Watford last season, and he seems too good of a striker to be playing in the Championship, so a move back to the top flight appears likely.
Given the Hornets’ relegation, Dennis is likely to be available at a discounted price, so interest in him should increase as the transfer window progresses.
Dubbed a ‘beast‘ by journalist Declan Carr midway through the 2021/22 campaign, the Nigeria international managed to score 10 goals and supply a further six assists in the top flight (Transfermarkt), a very impressive return in a relegated team.
Therefore, Everton need to get this deal done as soon as possible, in order to fend off other potential suitors for the Nigerian.
Dennis is only 24 years of age and has plenty more years left in him to reach the heights of departed Richarlison, who coincidentally made the move to Goodison Park from Watford in 2018.
It’s stated that Watford are willing to sell Dennis for a fee of around £20million – a fraction of the Richarlison fee to Tottenham Hotspur.
