Fenerbache to beat Arsenal, Napoli in the race for star striker Emmanuel Dennis

Emmanuel Dennis

Turkish giants Fenerbahce are interested in signing Super Eagles and Club Brugge forward Emmanuel Dennis this summer and look set to beat Arsenal and Napoli to his signature, The Athletic NG reports.

Dennis is expected to leave the Belgian Pro league champions after spending three seasons at the club.

Arsenal and Napoli are among the clubs interested in the former Zorya Luhansk of Ukraine player.

According to reports in Turkey, Fenerbahce have registered interest in the 22-year-old Nigeria international who made the headlines after scoring a brace in Club Brugge’s 2-2 away draw against Real madrid in the UEFA Champions League group stages.

Emmanuel Dennis scored nine goals in 33 appearances for Club Brugge last season.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is eyeing a replacement for captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is yet to agree to new terms. His contract will expire next summer and the Gunners cannot afford to lose him on a free.

While strike partner, Alexander Lacazzette is also a target for Spanish giant Atletico Madrid.
