The Lowdown: Great season
Despite being relegated to the Championship with Watford, Dennis had a great individual season, scoring ten goals and making a further six assists in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
This included a major cameo at Goodison Park, where he came off the bench in the second half to terrify the Merseyside club, scoring one and assisting two to secure a thumping 5-2 away win for the Hornets (BBC).
The Latest: Everton ‘talks’
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic journalist Adam Leventhal shared an update and revealed that the Toffees are one of a number of top-flight sides who are now in ‘talks’ to sign Dennis, and there is a feeling that a deal can be struck by the end of the window:
“New: Emmanuel Dennis latest. Background on #NFFC #WHUFC #FFC #EFC interest/talks.
“Watford/player optimistic deal will still be struck before end of window. Patience needed though.”
The Verdict: Get it done
After losing Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur, Frank Lampard’s team are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements, and signing Dennis would certainly be a smart move.
The striker could be available at a cheaper price having been relegated to the Championship, and he already has the experience of playing in the Premier League.
Hailed as a ‘beast‘ by journalist Declan Carr midway through last season, Dennis has shown that he can perform at a high level, having scored 46 goals in total at club level and one for his country Nigeria by the age of 24 (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, this is a deal that should get the Blues supporters feeling more optimistic about the upcoming campaign.
