Newly promoted Premier League club, Leeds United are interested in landing the services of Super Eagles attacker, Emmanuel Dennis from Belgian First Division A side, Club Brugge.
According to Belgian daily, Het Laatste Nieuws, Dennis is eager to make a departure from Brugge during this summer’s transfer window and Leeds are one of the 22-year-old’s suitors.
Het Laatste Nieuws wrote: “Leeds United have joined the race for Club Brugge striker, Emmanuel Dennis whose head has now been turned towards a transfer.
“Dennis is expected to be in demand this summer following his development at Club Brugge and a host of clubs have been credited with holding an interest in him including Newcastle United and Wolves.
“The club now have extra reason to worry about Dennis as his head has been turned. He wants to play in a bigger league and while he is physically at the club, his head is visibly somewhere else.”
Dennis is battling with an ankle niggle and has not been fully training with his team-mates at Brugge. He has also missed all his side’s friendlies apart from a cameo role against KV Mechelen.
Brugge on their own part want between €20m and €25m for Dennis but it is not certain if any club-side will be willing to pay such a sum due to the covid-19 induced economic recession.
The Nigerian international scored five goals and rendered one assist in 20 Belgian top-flight appearances this season. He had nine goals and two assists in 33 games in all competitions.
