Manchester United have reportedly interested in Emmanuel Dennis, with the 24-year-old emerging as a summer target for the Red Devils.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Emmanuel Dennis is the subject of interest from Manchester United over a possible move in next summer’s transfer window. The 24-year-old Watford forward has popped up on the Red Devils’ radar following a bright first half of the 2021/22 season.

Emmanuel Dennis joined Watford from Club Brugge in July 2021 and has made an immediate impact at Vicarage Road. The Nigerian international has quickly become a pivotal figure for the Hornets, playing a leading role in their bid to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

The 24-year-old has seven goals and five assists in 15 Premier League appearances thus far this season. Dennis’s exploits have not gone unnoticed, with some of the biggest clubs in the world, including Manchester United, setting their sights on him.

The interest from Manchester United makes sense amid the uncertainty surrounding Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan international is reportedly on the verge of departing Old Trafford, with widespread reports heavily linking him with Barcelona.

The latest developments have suggested that the Catalan giants have prepared a contract offer for Cavani. While the veteran striker’s exit might not leave Manchester United short-changed in the attacking department in the second half of the ongoing campaign, they will need to invest in one in the summer transfer window.

Cristiano Ronaldo is 36 years old and will only be a short-term solution for Manchester United, even though he has shown no signs of slowing down. As a result, the Red Devils have been linked with several attacking players recently, including Joao Felix, with Dennis also a viable target.

The 24-year-old is an option worth considering for Manchester United as he can essay different roles in the final third, which might come in handy for the next manager who takes over the helm at Old Trafford. For now, Dennis will be focused on keeping Watford’s Premier League status intact, but it remains to be seen if he is pursued by Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
