Numerous Premier League clubs reportedly want Club Brugge’s Emmanuel Dennis including Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, Watford and Leicester City.

The COVID-19 crisis could force Club Brugge to sell Newcastle United and Everton target Emmanuel Dennis, according to Voetbal Belgie, with the Nigerian international on the market for £23 million this summer.

To say the 22-year-old speed-machine is a man for the big occasion would be a bit of an understatement.

Dennis has scored just nine goals in 33 games for Brugge this season – a far from exceptional tally we’re sure you can agree.

But, when you consider that a third of these goals have come against Manchester United and Real Madrid in European competition, that paints a rather different picture of a forward who thrives in front of the cameras.

A host of Premier League clubs have obviously been left impressed by these high-profile heroics.

HLN reports that Newcastle, Sheffield United, Brighton and Watford are keen. Southampton, Leicester City, Everton and Crystal Palace are also in the race, FootMercato adds.

According to reports from Belgium, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the financial pitfalls that will come because of it, will force Club Brugge to sell a star player or two this summer as they look to avoid falling into monetary ruin.

This means that Dennis, the £23 million-rated youngster, is almost certain to be sold during the upcoming transfer window.
