What Next For Arteta? Belgian club refused to let Nigerian attacker sign for Arsenal



Arsenal made an offer to land Emmanuel Dennis from the Jupiler Pro League outfit Club Brugge last summer, according to the latest reports in Germany.

According to Sport Bild (via FussballTransfers), the Gunners showed specific interest in the Nigerian forward in 2020, and they wanted to put €18 million on the table for the star.

The Belgian side refused, as they considered Emmanuel a key part of their plans. But, he ended up sitting on the bench so often this campaign that he has now moved on loan to FC Koln.

After nine goals for the forward in the 2019/20 season, including scoring against Real Madrid (twice) and Manchester United, Emmanuel struggled to find form this season.

The African star only had one goal and three assists by January, featuring in just six league matches.

He also reportedly had a falling out with the club’s management, helping to push him out the door to Germany.

Primarily a striker, Dennis spends almost as much time out on the flanks. He has one goal in three outings with his current club.

This is not the first time reports of the Gunners’ interest in Dennis have emerged. Arsenal also apparently tried to secure the services of the 23-year-old two years ago for £12 million.

Dennis only has a deal with Club Brugge lasting until June 2022. If Arsenal are still keen after the Koln loan, this summer’s transfer market would be a good time to strike a deal.
