Leicester City are on the hunt for a forward, and Emmanuel Dennis is a player who is thought to be on their radar.
According to the football transfer rumours in Nigerian media, Leicester City are preparing mega offer for Emmanuel Dennis.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Club Brugge spent 1.3 million euros to sign the Nigeria international from Zorya Luhansk in the summer of 2017. The 21-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
In 87 appearances for Club Brugge, Dennis has managed to score 25 goals, and create 9 goals for his teammates.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Nigeria. As a member of Nigeria national football team, Dennis won two caps.
Leicester City shortlist Emmanuel Dennis as prime transfer target this winter.
Brendan Rodgers has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this winter and the Club Brugge forward is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
There is no doubt that Emmanuel Dennis will take Leicester City’s attack to a different level.
According to SoccerNet, “Following his incredible, goalscoring feat at the Santiago Bernabeu, Nigeria international and Club Brugge forward, Emmanuel Dennis has seen his stock rise significantly with a number of clubs, chief among which is Leicester City, ready to prise the 20-year-old attacker from the Belgian side come January. The January transfer window cannot come early enough for Premier League side Leicester City as the highflying Foxes look to bolster their attacking options with the signing of Super Eagles star, Emmanuel Dennis. Reports emanating from Belgium suggest that Brendan Rodgers side is ready to table an offer believed to be in the region of €23m for Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis. Dennis scored a brace against Real Madrid on match day 2 of the UEFA Champions League in Club Brugge’s impressive 2-2 draw in Spain and has been instrumental in the club’s ascension to the top of the Belgian League. Brugge are believed to be uninterested in selling off one of their most valuable players midway into a title challenge but Brendan Rodgers is reported to be insisting on a mid-season switch having identified Dennis as the man to partner England forward, Jamie Vardy upfront. The Foxes have opened negotiations with Brugge, according to the report, with the Belgian outfit expected to demand €23m for Dennis’ signature.”
