Irons eye double Hornets raid

West Ham are considering a double swoop on Watford this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The Hammers are said to be eyeing up moves for both Ismaila Sarr and Emmanuel Dennis after Watford’s relegation to the Championship.

Boss David Moyes is desperate to sign a striker and Dennis would fit the bill, although that chase would depend on whether the club can sign either Gianluca Scamacca or Armando Broja.

Sarr would be an option to strengthen the wide positions, particularly in the wake of Andriy Yarmolenko’s exit, although Watford boss Rob Edwards wants to keep him.

He is hoping to build around Sarr as the Hornets aim to return to the top-flight but Watford’s board have made it clear that he will be sold if an appropriate bid is tabled.

Dennis scored 10 goals in the Premier League last season, while Sarr scored five and also laid on two assists, despite them failing to avoid the drop.

  1. Like this idea. Would want to bring in Dennis as well as Scammaca as would then provide competition. Think we will need 2 strikers anyway in the long run. This would allow Antonio to switch to his preferred role on the wings and compete with, HOPEFULLY, Kostic and Bowen. Believe Sarr also plays left side for Watford. So to have 4 wingers and 2 strikers who can play a variety of positions would be great competition all round the top end of the park.

  2. I don’t understand this web site and find it’s rumours and statements have no evidence in what is written. Why is these signings dependant on Scamacca signing? Also this is not a new consideration for DM,apparently he has had his “eye” on these 2 for a while now but DM is waiting for someone else to come in for them.

  3. Dennis (and Sarr) have been available all summer clearly – we have commented on them before – .Moyes and Newman must have assessed them, so if they are required, get it done. I think Dennis is a good option striker along with another (Scamacca). Better to get him now rather than dither for Broja (availability?).. Just stop hand-wringing and be proactive.
