Over the past couple of weeks, there has been intense speculation over the future of Emmanuel Dennis at Watford.
The latest reports in England suggest that West Ham are keen to land Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis.
He has been subject to interest from various Premier Leaue clubs.

The striker banged in 10 goals and provided 6 assists in 35 matches for Watford last season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Nigeria. Dennis has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 7 senior appearances for the Nigeria national team.
Emmanuel Dennis is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Watford this summer and the list of suitors in the Nigeria international continues to grow.
His impressive performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including West Ham.
David Moyes wants to sign a new striker and Dennis is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Moyes is a firm fan of Watford striker and West Ham could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The former Club Brugge man is a dynamic striker, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “West Ham remain keen on Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis. The Athletic reports despite the signing of Gianluca Scamacca, West Ham are on the hunt for another striker. With David Moyes heading for another European campaign, the club need to pad out the squad if they are going to balance that and a top-six Premier League push. And the Hammers remain keen on a move for Watford star Emmanuel Dennis. The Nigeria international is ready to leave the Hornets after their relegation last season.”
