Watford are reportedly now just waiting for West Ham United to make an official bid to sign Emmanuel Dennis.

That’s according to a report from The Daily Mail who claim that the 24-year-old striker is on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window.

Signing a proven centre-forward this summer will be absolutely vital for West Ham, if we are to make any kind of progress next season.

The Mirror first linked the Hammers with a move to sign Watford ace Emmanuel Dennis a couple of weeks ago.

It was suggested that the East London outfit would have to offer around £20 million to prise the six-capped Nigeria international away from Vicarage Road this summer.

It seems as though an offer has not yet been made by the Hammers though…

According to a report from The Daily Mail, the Hornets are waiting for the Hammers to come in with an official offer for the striker.

We believe that the 24-year-old would be a very good addition for West Ham this summer and is exactly the kind of striker David Moyes usually likes.

Dennis bagged 10 goals and six assists in 33 Premier League games for Watford last season (Transfermarkt).

He is a constant menace for opposing defenders and possesses a fantastic work-rate.

West Ham fans will know all about Dennis. He scored against us with a brilliant strike at Vicarage Road earlier this season.

£20 million seems like a reasonable fee for West Ham to pay for the Nigerian. It is worth noting that he can play on either wing as well as through the middle.

So what are West Ham waiting for?

If Moyes really wants Emmanuel Dennis, then the West Ham owners just need to make an official bid for him now. Let’s get this one done and dusted so Moyes can then focus on improving other areas of the squad.
