Newly-promoted English Premier League club Nottingham Forest are looking to bolster their squad before the summer transfer window ends and are considering Emmanuel Dennis as an option.

During the last campaign, the 24-year-old scored 10 goals for the Hornets and made six assists.
The latest reports from SunSport say Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper is determined to bring in a striker despite already signing Dennis’ international teammates, Taiwo Awoniyi and then England star Jesse Lingard.

They are desperate to make a swift sale to raise money and possibly sign the Nigerian on loan, with an option to buy.
Dennis joined Watford from Belgian Pro League Club Brugge last summer for £3m.
Watford now wants £20m to sell the talented striker.
Jesse Lingard speaks on why he joined Nottingham Forest
Sports Brief earlier reported that Jesse Lingard says the love from Nottingham Forest owners convinced him to join the newly-promoted club, despite interest from other top European clubs.
The 29-year-old attacking midfielder left Manchester United on a free transfer after his contract ran out and was heavily tipped to join West Ham United.
However, in what was a surprise transfer twist for everyone, Lingard opted to join The Tricky Trees in a one-year deal.
Nottingham Forest’s torturous time away from English top flight came to an end three months ago after beating Huddersfield 1-0 in a nervy playoff final.
