With Saudi Arabia signing some of Europe’s big names in recent weeks, there has been speculation about the possibility of Nigerian forward, Emmanuel Dennis, making a move to the Middle East. However, the player has made it clear that he wants to continue playing in Europe and is set to turn down any offers from Saudi Arabia.
Dennis, who currently plays for Nottingham Forest, is said to be looking for a new challenge and has set his sights on leaving the club this summer. The 25-year-old’s representatives have started the process of holding exploratory talks with other clubs in Europe, with the aim of finding the right opportunity for the versatile forward.
While Nottingham Forest have not received an official offer for the striker, they are said to be open to discussions over an exit. Further talks are expected to take place in the near future between the club and Dennis’ representatives.
Dennis’ current contract with Nottingham Forest runs until June 2026, after he was signed on a four-year deal from Watford last summer for an estimated fee of £15 million. In just 19 Premier League appearances for the club, he scored two important goals and set up another two towards the end of the season, helping to secure Nottingham Forest’s stay in the Premier League for another season.
Despite interest from Saudi Arabia, Dennis has made it clear that he wants to stay in Europe and is open to the possibility of a departure if the right opportunity presents itself. With his representatives already in talks with other clubs, it remains to be seen where the Nigerian forward will end up next season. But one thing is for sure, it won’t be in Saudi Arabia.
