West Ham want Emmanuel Dennis from Watford and are planning a £20million bid for a man who is also being targeted by Premier League rivals Newcastle United, as reported by The mirror.

Reflecting on the negotiations that almost saw the Nigeria international join West Brom in the summer of 2020, Dennis revealed he saw the Baggies as a stepping stone of sorts to something ‘bigger’.

One wonders if he feels the same about Watford. Especially after Roy Hodgson’s horror show Hornets suffered the ignominy of relegation after just one miserable season in England’s top flight.

As pointed out by The Mirror, Dennis has four years left on the contract he signed last year when he joined Watford for a bargain £3million from Belgian giants Club Brugge.

However, it would come as a huge surprise if Arsenal and Manchester United’s one-time goal were to play against Reading, Bristol City and co next season, especially with a number of Premier League clubs poised to offer Dennis a fresh start .

Newcastle are excited. However, West Ham appear to be at a more advanced stage with a £20million bid on the horizon.

Dennis’ agents will hold talks with the Watford hierarchy after their final game of the season against Chelsea this weekend.

Newcastle and West Ham want Emmanuel Dennis

Skillful, versatile Dennis, who can play wide or in a more central role, was one of the few bright sparks in a dismal season at Watford, contributing six assists and ten goals – one of which came against West Ham in December.

What’s more, the 24-year-old became just the sixth player in Premier League history to register five goals and five assists in 12 games or fewer in the competition.

He also shares quite an illustrious company, joining Eric Cantona, Jurgen Klinsmann, Arjen Robben, Andrey Arshavin and Bruno Fernandes in a very exclusive club (Opta).

“(Dennis) is a very talented player,” Ex-Watford boss Claudio Ranieri said a few months ago. “He’s fast, has good skills, always runs straight for goal. I love these types of players.”

Also David Moyes, by the way.
