Nottingham Forest striker Emmanuel Dennis is set to be the subject of one final bid from Udinese. The Reds player has spent the summer training with the B-Team and he’s been deemed surplus to requirements.
According to Football Italia, Udinese are keen to sign the Forest player before the transfer window slams shut tomorrow night. The Reds are keen to offload him as they desperately try to trim their squad before the cut-off.
Things haven’t really worked out for Dennis at Forest. He’s often been used as a substitute under Steve Cooper and during the 2022/23 campaign he scored just twice from 25 appearances for the club.
Forest paid around £15 million for Dennis. It looks very unlikely that they will receive anything like that if they sell the player but they would welcome the chance to get the 25-year-old away from the wage bill.
Dennis needs to play regular football during the current campaign. He didn’t start anywhere near enough games for Forest last season and he will simply want to play.

Udinese are cutting their cloth accordingly this season. They will be extremely familiar with Dennis given that he signed for Forest from their sister club, Watford.

This is a move that Forest have to consider. Even if the Udinese offer is lower than what Forest anticipated they would receive, getting him off the wage bill would be ideal.
The Reds would dearly love to offload several other players ahead of the deadline. The squad is still somewhat bloated and more new arrivals are anticipated.
Dennis has zero future at Forest. The Reds haven’t included him in a single squad this season and now seems like the perfect time to offload him.
