According to Sport Bild (via FussballTransfers), The Gunners showed specific interest in Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis last summer, and they wanted to put €18m on the table for the player.
The Belgian outfit refused, as they considered Dennis Emmmuel an important part of their plans. Ironically, The Nigeria forward ended up sitting on the bench so often this campaign that he is now moved on a loan deal to FC Koln.
After 9 goals for the striker in 2019/20, including scoring against Los Blancos (twice) and the Red Devils, Dennis Emmanuel struggled to find form this campaign. He only had 1 goal and 3 assists by January, making just 6 league outings.
The Nigeria International also reportedly had a falling out with Hierarchy, helping to push him out the door to Germany.
Primarily a centre-striker, Dennis Emmanuel spends almost as much time out on the flank. He has one goal in 3 matches with his current side.
This is not the first time reports of the Gunners interest in the striker have emerged. Arsenal also evidently tried to sign the 23-year-old 2 years back for £12m.
The striker only has a contract with Club Brugge lasting until year 2022. If the Gunners are still interested after the Koln loan, this summer would be a good time to get a transfer completed
