West Ham United could allegedly now sign Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis for a bargain fee in the summer after the Hornets’ relegation from the Premier League.
That’s according to club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes is looking to sign a younger forward to compete with Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.
It’s no secret that Moyes’s priority signing will be a centre-forward in the summer transfer window.
Michail Antonio is the only option the Scot has had at his disposal for nearly 18 months now. And that quite simply isn’t good enough for a club with supposed ambitions of challenging for honours both domestically and on the continent.
One striker to have been strongly linked with a move to West Ham over the past month or so is Watford ace Emmanuel Dennis (The Mirror).
It was alleged that the 24-year-old would cost around £20 million. It seems as though we might be able to pick him up for less than that amount now though…
West Ham could sign Premier League striker for an absolute bargain
Claret and Hugh reckon that the Nigerian could be picked up for as little as £10 million after Watford’s relegation to the Championship.
We believe that the 24-year-old would be a very good addition for West Ham this summer.
Dennis bagged 10 goals and six assists in 33 Premier League games for Watford 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.
£10 million for Dennis seems like fantastic value.
And West Ham bringing a Premier League proven striker to the London Stadium for that kind of fee seems like an absolute no-brainer.
