Speaking on NUFC Matters on YouTube, journalist Ben Jacobs on CBS Sports discussed Newcastle’s hunt for a new striker and picked Emmanuel Dennis as the player to watch.
The Nigerian striker impressed Watford last season, scoring double figures on his first appearance in the Premier League, and it is understood that he drew a lot of interest from the Premier League.
According to Jacobs, Eddie Howe is a huge fan of the 24-year-old, and this is one to watch out for in the coming weeks.
What was said?
Jacobs discussed Dennis and Newcastle.
“Emmanuel Dennis is another player to watch, simply because he was excellent with Watford despite their fall. I know Howe loves the player. I don’t think Newcastle have made any kind of movement at this point, but he needs to be watched from now on,” Jacobs said. end of the window.
Adding Dennis to the front line at Newcastle would be amazing.
The striker showed last season how dynamic he is going forward, and adding him to an attack that already includes Alain Saint-Maximin and Ryan Fraser would be unbelievable.
Dennis can play in all three front positions, so he’ll add a lot of depth to that aspect as well as quality, and after Watford’s relegation you should feel like he’ll be available for a decent fee.
Unfortunately, Newcastle was not the only team in this race. Post Hamm and Everton have also been recognized with interest, but given Newcastle’s immense wealth and ambition, they should be able to win the race for his signature if they decide to pursue the striker.
