West Ham have ‘intimated that they are prepared to pay £18 million plus £2 million in add-ons’ for Emmanuel Dennis, Megasportsarena.com understands.
The five-cap Nigeria international was one of the few positives to come out of Vicarage Road.
The 24-year-old was signed from Club Brugge last summer and made an instant impact with an opening day goal and an assist in the 3-2 victory over Aston Villa upon the Hertfordshire club’s return to the Premier League.
Despite the Nigerian’s exploits, Watford were relegated and Dennis could now be on the move once again
It’s claimed that Dennis – who Watford valued between £20m and £25m – is on a ‘list of recruitment targets’ at the London Stadium as David Moyes and Rob Newman attempt to strengthen the Irons’ attacking ranks.
However, as things stand, the Irons are not expected to advance their interest in the man hailed as ‘very talented’ by his former manager Claudio Ranieri following an impressive start to life in England, even though the 24-year-old is ’99 per cent certain to be leaving’ Vicarage Road this summer.
