Leeds United are in negotiations with Club Brugge over the possibility of signing Emmanuel Davis, according to journalist Manu Lonjon.

The French journalist reported that the Whites are in discussions with the Belgian champions, as well as Inter Milan, who are also interested in the Nigerian.

The 22-year-old only managed to score nine goals last season, with the African suffering with a handful of injury problems.

Lonjon reported the news on Friday afternoon on his personal Twitter account, claiming that Leeds are rivalling the Italian giants.

“Inter Milan in negotiations (Leeds too) for Emmanuel Dennis (Bruges),” he wrote.

It has been reported recently by HLN that Leeds are set to rival Wolves and Newcastle for Dennis this summer, but it appears that they are the first to actually initiate talks with the Belgian club.

Dennis is said to be worth up to £22.7million, with Leeds desperately needing more competition in the final third.

The Whites have already reportedly been rejected by Gent striker Jonathan David, who will now instead join Lille, but it appears that Leeds have moved on quickly.

With Patrick Bamford the only out-and-out forward at the club right now, the Whites are nowhere near prepared for the Premier League as it stands.

The 22-year-old could be the perfect forward for Leeds, as he would arrive in West Yorkshire for a relatively cheap price and Champions League experience – scoring twice against Real Madrid last season.

Bamford needs competition to continue pushing him forward ahead of the biggest season of his career and this is very smart from Leeds.
