Forest plotting swoop for Watford striker Dennis

Nottingham Forest are plotting a swoop for Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis - according to The Daily Mail.

The Premier League new boys have already spent £70 million ($84m) on new players this summer, but Steve Cooper is still looking to increase his options further in the attack.

Dennis, who scored ten Premier League goals in 2021-22, could be open to a return to the top-flight with Forest after suffering relegation with Watford.

Man City's £30m Cucurella bid rejected

Manchester City have seen an opening bid of £30 million ($35m) for Marc Cucurella rejected by Brighton - according to The Athletic.

City are prepared to increase their initial offer, but won't hesitate to walk away from a deal if the Seagulls refuse to compromise on their £50m ($60m) valuation of the 23-year-old.

Cucurella's personal terms are not expected to be a problem as the Brighton full-back is enticed by the prospect of linking up with the Premier League champions.

Chelsea have enquired over the availability of Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin - according to The Athletic.

Tottenham are also interested in the Frenchman, but neither of the London clubs will be willing to meet the Magpies' £40 million ($48m) asking price.

Chelsea could try and negotiate a cut-price fee with Newcastle, though, as Thomas Tuchel seeks to add greater depth to his attacking ranks.

Ten Hag to keep Martial at Man Utd (The Mirror)

Erik ten Hag has decided to keep Anthony Martial at Manchester United - according to The Mirror.

The Red Devils were initially open to selling or loaning out the Frenchman, who spent the second half of 2021-22 on loan at Sevilla, before the September 1 deadline.

However, Ten Hag has blocked Martial's potential exit after seeing him score in three successive pre-season games, with the striker now set to lead the line for United at the start of the new season.
