Leeds United could sign Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis for £20m

Leeds United could reportedly look to pursue a move for Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis after learning of his £20million valuation.

According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, the Hornets are relaxed about his situation and will be waiting for any offers that come for the forward.

He does state that there are two Premier League sides vying for his services and the Whites, who are looking for a striker, could be one of them.

Sheth wrote on Twitter, “Two unnamed Premier League clubs interested in Watford forward Emmanuel Dennis. 4 years left on his contract. Watford relaxed and likely to want £20m for a player they bought for £3m. Scored 10 Premier League goals last season.”

Give Me Sport journalist Dean Jones reported in April 2022 that Leeds could look to sound out the Nigerian over a move this summer.

He said, “From what I understand, they would much prefer to have somebody who has had a taste of life in England, scoring goals at the top level, so Dennis might be a player they sound out.

“I don’t think it’s one that’s been mooted yet but, absolutely, that is the level of player that they’re looking at.”

Signing Dennis would make a lot of sense for Leeds as they will get a proven Premier League goal scorer who is capable of playing all across the front three.

At 24, he’s still got his best days ahead of him and is only going to get better in the coming seasons.

Signing him would not only improve the first team but it could also be an investment as he will have a high resale value.
