Premier League giants Everton are now looking for a good replacement for Brazilian star Richarlison who has joined Tottenham and Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis is one of their targets.

And according to the report on Complete Sports, Dennis is one of those being considered and the Hornets could be tempted to sell if an offer of around £20m comes in.

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Super Eagles star Odion Ighalo won his first-ever career title after inspiring Al Hilal to win the Saudi Professional League on Monday night.

The former Manchester United forward scored twice to help Al Hilal defeat Al Faisaly 2-1 in their final league game of the season at the King Fahd International Stadium, Riyadh.

Ighalo also finished the campaign as the top scorer after bagging 24 goals in the course of the season as it became the 18th time Al Hilal will be winning the title.

The forward who grew up in the Ajegunle area of Lagos began his professional career at Prime FC of Osun State in 2005 and then moved to Julius Berger FC the following year.

Ighalo moved to Europe in 2007, where he joined Norwegian outfit, Lyn, as he also played for clubs in China as well as England.
