Report: Arsenal make £12m offer for 21-year-old

Arsenal are ready to battle it out with Fenerbahce and Lyon to sign Emmanuel Dennis from Club Brugge, according to Turkish outlet Fanatik.

They report that all three clubs are keen on the 21-year-old striker, who netted seven goals across 32 matches in all competitions last season for the Belgian side.

The report also says that the Gunners – and Lyon – have tabled a bid apiece of £12 million for the young hitman, as they look to boost their firepower.

Unai Emery can call upon Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette up front but the departure of Danny Welbeck means that youngster Eddie Nketiah is the next most senior striker in the Gunners ranks.

It’s tempting to conclude that there are areas of Emery’s side that need improving more urgently than their striking options, but it would be understandable if the Spaniard wanted a third striker through the door this summer.

The calibre of the other sides in the chase may suggest that Dennis is not a world-beating prospect, but Arsenal’s best approach in their current situation is to take younger players and try and blood them into stars.

Dennis has obviously made a big impression in Belgium, but his club team-mate Wesley could perhaps be the better bet.
