Everton: Alan Myers drops transfer claim on Emmanuel Dennis

Everton are in desperate need to make some signings this summer, especially with news of Richarlison’s impending move to Tottenham Hotspur, and a new update has now emerged from a reliable source.

What’s the latest?

Journalist and Goodison Park insider Alan Myers has given hope to the Toffees’ pursuit of a potential transfer target by making a claim on the chances of Emmanuel Dennis making a move to Merseyside this summer.

Myers responded to an Everton supporter’s question on Twitter about the chances of signing the Nigeria international this summer, saying: “Wouldn’t surprise me”.

It was reported by The Daily Mail this month that Everton are interested in signing the striker if Richarlison did exit the club.

Supporters will be delighted

There is no doubt that supporters will be delighted that there is an opportunity for Everton to sign Dennis from Watford this summer, as he could be a worthy replacement in terms of adding goal contributions following Richarlison’s imminent departure.

Despite the Hornets falling back into the Championship at the end of last season, their Nigerian striker has been a consistent and reliable player who could be a great asset if he has an experienced, high-quality forward line around him next season.

Firstly, where did Everton finish in the Premier League?

Dennis scored 10 goals, delivered six assists and created seven big chances, along with making one key pass and 1.5 tackles and winning 6.2 duels per game over 33 Premier League appearances last term,  with his output very similar to Richarlison’s.

The Brazil international also scored 10 goals and created seven big chances during the campaign, along with making one key pass per game, but he delivered one assist fewer and made fewer tackles than the Watford star last season over 30 league appearances for the Toffees.

Is Dennis a good Richarlison replacement?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As a result, Frank Lampard could form a formidable strike partnership between Dennis and Dominic Calvert-Lewin next season to fill the hole that Richarlison will leave in the team, and it could really pay off considering that the Watford attacker has a similar output to the Brazilian, who coincidentally has also had a spell at Vicarage Road.

Moshiri must act swiftly to ensure that the Everton squad is not weakened further, as Lampard will be desperate to improve every area of the pitch to ensure that the team doesn’t fall into another Premier League relegation battle in 2022/23.
