Sheffield United and Atalanta Bergamo are also reportedly in the running to obtain his services ahead of the 2020/21 season.

      The “race” by clubs for Dennis be like heavenly race…Lolz. I heard Marseille actually tabled a bid this time (a club finally tables a bid since January). Let’s pray something positive comes out of it. Marseille isn’t going to be a bad move for Dennis IMHO

        Marseille won’t be a bad move. They are a top team in Europe and qualifies for Champions League and Europa often. They are way bigger than Brugge. Presently they can’t boast of a prolific striker upfront or a good Winger either. If this is true this time, It’s a good move for me and a Step up for Dennis.

  • I think the main issue is with club brugge, they want a huge amount of money for dennis. Their evaluation of him is unreasonable. He is mostly a winger and not a striker. They are using his goals again real madrid and man utd as yard sticks to push his price up. They should accept reasonable bids and allow him make a step up to a more illustrious league and not keep frustrating efforts for him to more on.

    • U are right, all this lower leagues clubsides are over inflating the bargains.. Dennis does not worth more than 10million pounds, they should be reasonable
