According to a UK tabloid, The Athletic, Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Dennis is keen for a stay in Europe amidst reports that the player could be heading to Saudi Arabia.

Dennis is highly likely to leave Nottingham Forest this summer and his representatives have started the process of holding exploratory talks with potential interested parties.

The Nigeria international is understood to be comfortable with the option of a departure if the right opportunity presents itself but wants to remain in Europe.

Forest signed Dennis from Watford last summer for a fee in the region of £15m on a four-year contract. The Championship club will receive a sell-on percentage if he were to move on again.

Dennis was among 22 players brought in by the club following promotion to the Premier League in 2021/22 but he failed to make a significant impact, scoring two goals in 19 Premier League appearances.

Both goals came at the City Ground in matches against Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

Dennis is said to be keen to remain in Europe and at this stage is not contemplating a move to the Saudi Pro League.

Forest are yet to receive an official offer for the striker but are also known to be open to discussions over an exit.
