Dennis was a bright spark in a grim season for the Hornets. In his first campaign in England, he recorded 10 goals and six assists in 35 games.

The Nigeria international has been heavily linked with a departure from Vicarage Road this summer.

Everton are claimed to have expressed interest as they bid to replace Richarlison, while top-flight rivals Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest are said to be keen.

Despite talk of a Watford exit, he started their 1-0 defeat of Sheffield United in their 2022-23 Championship curtain-raiser on Monday night.

What’s been said

And speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Dennis gave an ambiguous answer when asked about his future.

He said: “I enjoyed the game today. We won the game so I’m happy.

“I’m still a player of the team so I just do my job and we’ll see what happens.”


Everton have signed three players so far this summer in James Tarkowski, Ruben Vinagre (loan) and Dwight McNeil.

But there’s still the void of last season’s 11-goal top scorer Richarlison, who was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for up to £60 million, to fill.

Along with Dennis, Frank Lampard’s side have been linked with Chelsea forwards Armando Broja and Michy Batshuayi.
