Club Brugge Striker Emmanuel Dennis Opens Transfer Door To Wolves

Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis is among a host of players to be linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of the next transfer window.

The Nigeria international has scored nine goals in 31 outings this season and rose to prominence with a Champions League brace against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in October.

Brugge manager Philippe Clement, whose side were declared Belgian champions after the Pro League was curtailed, admitted over the weekend it is likely the forward will move ahead of next season.

“It is very likely that Dennis will leave,” Clement told La Dernière Heure. “He can also count on a lot of interest. It is time for him to take a new step.”

Arsenal and Newcastle United are also reported to hold an interest in £22m-rated Dennis, who joined Brugge from Ukrainian club Zorya Luhansk in 2017.

Asked about a potential transfer, he told Sky Sports News: “I like challenges. I've been here for three years. My focus right now is I have one more game this season – the Cup Final – which I want to win, that's really important to me.

“After then, we'll see what happens, you never know.”
