Arsenal In Transfer Tug-O’-War For Club Brugge’s Forward Emmanuel Dennis

Arsenal are among a host of top European clubs currently embroiled in a transfer battle for Club Brugge’s forward Emmanuel Dennis.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season with the Belgian outfit after being directly involved in 11 goals in all competitions from 33 appearances including scoring twice in this season’s Champions League.

Dennis has become one of European football’s hottest prospect and is tipped for great things after it became clear the Super Eagles forward will depart current side Club Brugge.

CaughtOffside claim that alongside Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are also Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig, Inter Milan, fellow Premier League outfit Everton and top-flight newcomers Leeds all fighting to secure Dennis’ services.

Also, Manchester United were said to be interested in the powerful forward but the Red Devils’ interest has since cooled leaving the remaining clubs all better positioned to snap the exciting attacker up.

Several clubs have made offers for the young Nigerian striker, but none yet have met Club Brugge’s required value of  Dennis.

Brugge will allow their star-forward to depart the club should an official bid of at least £36m (€40m) be made, however, the attacker’s preference is to play in the Champions League next season.
