West Ham United are allegedly plotting a £20 million bid for Watford forward Emmanuel Dennis in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Mirror who claim that the 24-year-old is set for talks with the Watford owners next week to discuss his future.
It is suggested that it’s likely he will be moved on with the Hornets set for Championship football next season.
Hammers manager David Moyes is obviously desperate to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium in the summer.
Michail Antonio is currently the only option available to Moyes through the middle and that absolutely has to change before the start of next season.
Judging by the latest reports, West Ham could be closing in on one signing in particular…
West Ham ready to make Emmanuel Dennis bid
The Watford hitman is firmly on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window according to a report from The Mirror.
The Hornets will apparently demand around £20 million for the five-capped Nigeria international this summer.
We believe that the 24-year-old would be a very good addition for West Ham this summer.
Dennis has bagged 10 goals and six assists in 33 Premier League games for Watford so far this 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 the Watford striker. It is worth noting that he can play on either wing as well as through the middle.
And if West Ham do make that kind of bid for Emmanuel Dennis in the summer transfer window, Moyes will surely get his man.
