Arsenal are continuing their quest to sign up quality talent with the latest rumour revealing that they have tabled a bid of £12million for Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis.
We are not the only club said to have put in bids, French outfit Lyon has also made a bid for the same amount and Turkish giants Fenerbahce are weighing up their options.
The 21-year-old scored seven goals and two assists from 26 appearances last season and so not exactly prolific but he has clearly done enough to attract the attention of some high profile clubs.
The one very good positive about the young Nigerian striker is he does come at an affordable price in these days of inflated valuations and we do need to replace Danny Welbeck in the squad but questions will be asked why spend any money on a young striker from an average league when we have extremely talented youngsters already.
It would be one thing if he had knocked in 20 goals or even scored seven in La Liga but that is not the case and I cannot help thinking that our own youngsters will not be impressed with any of this and may even question why they should remain at Arsenal.
I would rather see Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah or even Folarin Balogun given a chance rather than spending £12 Million on a player that we would probably do not really need.
