Three reasons Everton may target Super Eagles star after Richarlison's Tottenham move

The transfer window is rumbling on with so many deals getting completed while others break down for one reason or another.


Nigerian players are not excluded from the hustle and bustle of the transfer window as many are on the verge of sealing new moves while others are attracting interest from other clubs.


Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis is also the subject of interest from top-tier clubs after his team Watford dropped down to the Championship after relegation from the Premier League last season.


Everton striker Richarlison was confirmed as a Tottenham Hotspur player last week thinks the Merseyside club may target Dennis after Richarlison's sale with three reasons being outlined.



Dennis can be likened to a "fox-in-the-box" kind of striker as he mostly comes alive when close to the box.


He is a highly effective player who has a nose for finding space and is quite good in physical duels. He is an extremely effective player who could do better when surrounded by better technical players.



Dennis thrives when he has support upfront in a sort of 2-striker system where he can feast on layoffs and knock-downs.


He can also lead the line on his own which will be a plus for Frank Lampard's system if he is signed.


Dennis's technique is also top-notch which allows him to operate effectively in tight areas. However, he sometimes tends to overplay the ball a little.



With Richarlison departing for Tottenham, Dennis is a good acquisition for the striker role whilst also deputising as a winger.


Watford's relegation means the Toffees could get him on a reduced fee of about 20 million pounds or less. Such a price for a quality Premier League experienced striker is a cost-effective deal which could entice Everton.
