West Ham United have reportedly held talks with the representatives of Watford hitman Emmanuel Dennis this week.
That’s according to football journalist Peter O’Rourke who claims that the Hammers are keen to bring the 24-year-old to the London Stadium in the summer.
David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his centre-forward ranks at West Ham United before the start of next season.
Michail Antonio has been a great servant for the club but the fact that he has been our only centre-forward for nearly 18 months now just isn’t acceptable.
That has to change if we are to challenge for honours next season. Antonio still has a huge role to play for the Hammers but he needs to be used more sparingly going forward, that’s for sure.
Moyes seemingly has one plan in particular up his sleeve…
West Ham hold talks to sign Emmanuel Dennis
Peter O’Rourke has claimed that the Hammers are now stepping up our attempts to prise Dennis, 24, away from Vicarage Road in the 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.
The Mirror have claimed that Watford will ask for around £20 million for the forward.
That 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.
And after claims that West Ham have held talks with the representatives of Emmanuel Dennis, it seems as though he could be London Stadium bound this summer.
