Out of Nottingham Forest’s plans for this season, Emmanuel Dennis has failed to find a new club during the summer transfer window. But his future should become clearer in the coming days…
He is one of the players who have fallen out of favour at Nottingham Forest. Along with Jonjo Shelvey and Harry Arter, Emmanuel Dennis is unlikely to play for Nottingham Forest again. Steve Cooper has a number of attacking options at his disposal, including Taiwo Awoniyi, Anthony Elanga, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Divock Origi, Chris Wood and Morgan Gibbs-White, and it seems that the former Watford striker is no longer part of the Welsh manager’s plans.
A number of clubs have been interested in the Nigerian striker this summer, including Championship club Leeds United, clubs in Saudi Arabia and Italian Serie A club Udinese, who for a long time seemed his most likely destination. Unfortunately, no moves were made and Emmanuel Dennis is still a Nottingham Forest player. But the summer transfer window is still open in some countries, and a move for Emmanuel Dennis is now looking increasingly likely.
Such is the case in Turkey. Turkish clubs have strengthened their squads considerably this summer and are keen to complete their summer transfer window, which closes in a few days’ time. And recently, Trabzonspor seemed to be showing an interest in Emmanuel Dennis.
Other reports mentioned a loan offer from the Turkish club to Nottingham Forest. A far from ideal proposition for Forest, but one that could free up some wage bill while keeping Emmanuel Dennis fit with a view to selling him next summer. The situation is not entirely clear at the moment, as the Turkish club are also targeting Southampton’s Nigerian centre-forward Paul Onuachu.
Whatever the case, it remains entirely possible that Emmanuel Dennis could leave Nottingham Forest in the days or weeks to come.
