Man United leading race to sign 24-year-old African striker

Emmanuel Dennis is the subject of interest from Man United over a possible move in next summer’s transfer window. Watford striker has popped up on Man United’s radar following a bright first half of the 2021/22 campaign.

Nigeria international joined the Hornets from Brugge in summer 2021 and has made an immediate impact at Vicarage Road. Dennis has quickly become a crucial figure for Watford, playing a leading role in their bid to avoid relegation from the PL.

Emmanuel has seven goals and five assists in 15 PL games thus far this campaign. The 24-year-old centre-forward’s exploits have not gone unnoticed, with some of the biggest teams in the world, including the Red Devils, setting their sights on him.

The interest from Man United makes sense amid the uncertainty surrounding Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan striker is reportedly on the verge of departing Man United, with widespread reports strongly linking him with Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo is 36 years old and will only be a short-term solution for the Red Devils, even though he has shown no signs of slowing down. As a result, Man United have been linked with several attacking footballers recently, including Joao Felix, with the African centre-forward also a viable target.

The former Brugge striker is an option worth considering for the Red Devils as he can essay different roles in the final third, which might come in handy for the next coach who takes over the helm at Theatre of Dreams.
