Presenter ExWHUEmployee has revealed that West Ham have an interest in recently relegated attacker Emmanuel Dennis.
This season was an impressive one for the Hammers who reached the semi-final of the Europa League as well as managing to secure European football for next season, but what makes it even more impressive is that they did it with just one senior striker in the squad.
Michail Antonio, who managed to stay injury-free during the campaign, led the line for David Moyes’ side but after a move for Darwin Nunez failed in January, it’s no surprise that they have been linked with more attackers already, including Dennis, who was relegated with Watford but did manage to score 10 goals during his debut Premier League season.
ExWHUEmployee believes that Dennis is one of the strikers that West Ham are going to be looking at this summer as he claimed on his Patreon:
‘It seems that we have decided that big-name targets such as Watkins and Calvert-Lewin will be beyond our forward budget so we will be targeting forwards below that valuation tier.
Would you like West Ham to sign Dennis?
‘These include: Emmanuel Dennis of Watford, Armando Broja of Chelsea/Southampton (who we bid for in January), and a French target with the most likely to be Mohamed Bayo of Clermont Foot.’
TIF Thoughts on interest in Dennis…
This would be a major coup for West Ham if they could bring Dennis to the London stadium and offer another chance at top-flight English football because if he was able to easily net double figures in a Watford side that only managed to score 34 goals all season, he would likely be a very good option for Moyes alongside Antonio.
The Nigerian international, who was described as a ‘very talented’ player by Claudio Ranieri, though reportedly has a lot of suitors from the Premier League, which may make it more difficult or the Hammers to land Dennis, although the lure of European football, which means more games and more chances to get minutes, could well swing in their favour.
