Watford chief confirms Emmanuel Dennis transfer stance amid Everton links

Emmanuel Dennis has been linked with a move from Watford to Everton in recent weeks

Watford sporting director Cristiano Giaretta has revealed that Emmanuel Dennis will leave the club if a sizable offer arrives this summer.

Dennis has been linked with a move to Everton in recent weeks as Frank Lampard looks to freshen up his squad. The former Club Brugge star is under contract at Vicarage Road until June 2026.

The forward scored 10 times and claimed six assists in 35 games last season – his first campaign in English football. But that wasn’t enough to prevent Watford from being relegated to the Championship.

Ismaila Sarr is another Watford name to be linked with a move away this summer, and when addressing the speculation around the pair, Giaretta admitted both are seeking departures.

“It’s highly likely that if they are here when the season starts, they will be available for first-team games if Rob [Edwards] chooses to select them,” he told the Watford Observer.

“They would like to leave and have been looking at potential moves, but they are not causing us any problems. They are not banging on our door to get away as soon as they can.

“They will stay at the club if the market doesn’t deliver something we think is acceptable, in the same way Sarr stayed with us the last time we were in the Championship.”
