Moyes reported to have had talks with striker

David Moyes is carefully weighing his striker options in this window but is unready to spend fortunes on a front man!

The manager instead is looking for a younger – possibly home grown forward – to take the weight off Mikey Antonio who of course was  not in his best from last December onwards.

However, Moyes still has plenty of faith in the 32 year old and certainly sees him as a regular starter although he remains keen to bring in a second front man.

Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis remains very high on his list and he has been reported as having had talks with the 24 year old.

High raterThe manager won’t be rush  to sign the Nigerian though  as he is keen to assess as many options as there are out there.

Moyes is carefully balancing his budget given the need for a central defender, left back and midfield cover but is known to be very keen on Dennis.

The player is contracted to Watford until 2026 but could be set to leave following the Hornets’ relegation to the Championship. We believe Watford have a £10 million price tag on him.

As we have reported previously  Armando Broja from Chelsea is another striker who interests the manager.

  1. “The manager won’t be rush to sign the Nigerian though as he is keen to assess as many options as there are out there”

    Of course he won’t be, that’s why he’s called “Dithering” Dave

  2. Mr Moyes is delusional if he believes Antonio will be anything but a back up player to a proper striker, not the other way around.
    We got away with it this season to some extent in finishing 7th, but we should and could have got Europa league or better, if Mikey had taken just a percentage of the chances he had. He is not a striker and never will be as he first touch is poor and he doesn’t possess enough vision or guile.
    Do not try to get through another season like this , we will not get away with it !

  3. yes he done this in the two previous windows and we lost all our targets to other teams, that was despite saying he will get his buisness done early in both windows, will we never learn, if he wants him and likes him for gods sake buy him, 10 mill is so cheap.
    how about diop swap for st max at newcastle, a player thats fast and can undoe a defence.

  4. Let’s be honest he’s not the most prolific striker Is he lets not rush and get better !

  5. Can’t fault hammer rite remarks. It’s the reason why moyes has never won fa in his career and too stubborn to look at his faults. Give moyes one more season with hopefully at least 5 or 6 top quality players coming in but looking at a free kamara going to villa and rumoured bassey also going there I won’t hold my breath that moyes will never win anything.

  6. Must agree with the other comments – there has been ample time to assess these players with Newman able to do so – but yet again DM dithers. Contrast to Gerrard at Villa hit the ground running signed up top players and has started this window the same. Actions Mr Moyes please not hand wringing. .

  7. Give Mr Moyes a break guys, the transfer window does not open until 10th June!!
