Leeds United linked striker ‘primed for chopping block’

Per a report from HITC, Nottingham Forest are ‘especially keen’ to sell forward Emmanuel Dennis amid rumoured interest from Leeds United. It is claimed that the 25-year old is ‘being primed for the Nottingham Forest chopping block’ this summer.

The Premier League side are apparently planning to sell a number of first team players this summer with the Nigerian striker just one of the big names likely to exit the City Ground. Forest paid a fee of £10 million potentially rising to £20 million for Dennis but are said to have been disappointed with his performances last season.

If Betis do decide to trigger that clause at the end of the deal it would represent a return on the full amount that the Whites paid Bayern Munich for the midfielder last summer. United are said to have had ‘high hopes’ for Roca who did impress in spells but struggled for consistency during the 22/23 campaign.
