Premier League new boys, Nottingham Forest have rekindled interest in Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis.

Dennis has been linked with the likes of West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United following Watford’s relegation from the Premier League.

The 23-year-old was earlier linked with Nottingham Forest but Steve Cooper’s side later cooled their interest in the player after signing Jesse Lingard from Manchester United.

According to the Athletic, Forest are now ready to make a firm offer for Dennis.

Watford value the Nigeria international around £20m.

The Hornets  paid Belgian Pro League outfit, Club Brugge £3m for Dennis last summer.

He scored 10 goals and recorded six assists in 33 league appearances for the Hornets last season.
