According to ANAEDOONLINE.NG Sports Extra, west Ham manager David Moyes has come under fire for his failure to sign Nigerian forward Emmanuel Dennis this summer.
According to ANAEDOONLINE.NG Sports Extra, the Hammers’ manager intended to bring Dennis to the London Stadium, but the Nigerian international decided to join with Nottingham Forest instead for almost £20 million.
Gianluca Scamacca, an Italian striker from Genoa, was acquired by Moyes’ English Premier League team for almost £30 million plus add-ons.
However, the Hammers still need some more attacking reinforcements and Moyes has received some criticism for his decision not to bring Dennis to East London.
The Mirror journalist Darren Lewis while speaking on the talkSPORT GameDay Podcast on Tuesday highlighted how a deal for West Ham to sign Dennis would have been fairly straightforward to get done.
“The team don’t look fresh and look a little bit stale when compared to other clubs at the moment. Looking at the top-six, a lot of teams have plenty of fresh faces whilst West Ham still look very stale. I think there will be more signings and a drastic change all over the pitch in their next match against Villa. You look at Nottingham Forest and they have been so decisive in their transfer business and decision-making.
“I felt that West Ham could have easily done a deal for Emmanuel Dennis, who would’ve given them depth in their forward line. At the moment West Ham are far too predictable and this end-of-season wait for signings to become available is costing them points.”
Based on what Dennis contributes to a team, pundits believe he would have been perfect for the Hammers as he would have provided very solid competition and cover for Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca.
The Nigerian bagged 10 goals and six assists in 33 Premier League games for Watford last season.
He is a constant menace for opposing defenders and possesses a fantastic work rate. The Nigeria international’s technique has been described as ‘unreal’ by The Express.
