Nottingham Forest are plotting a swoop for Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis – according to The Daily Mail.
The Premier League new-boys have already spent £70 million ($84m) on new players this summer, but Steve Cooper is still looking to increase his options further in the attack.
Dennis, who scored 10 Premier League goals in 2021-22, could be open to a return to the top-flight with Forest after suffering relegation with Watford.
Newcastle United have also been linked with the striker in recent weeks and according to several reports, the Magpies could unveil the Nigeria international in the coming days if the club is able to match his value.
Dennis is available for a fee of around £20m and a move to the City Ground will see him link up with compatriot Taiwo Awoniyi who joined Forest from Union Berlin.
The former Club Brugge man was left out of Watford’s pre-season training camp in Austria, but later joined up with his teammates and would feature in their friendly against Southampton on Saturday.
