Sheffield United could replicate their January spending and splash more than £20m on a player, according to reports in Belgium.
Voetbal Belgie claims that the Blades could rival Newcastle United to bid for the services of Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis.
The paper reports that Sheffield United would have no concerns about meeting Brugge’s hefty price-tag.
22-year-old Dennis is not the most prolific of forwards, netting just nine times in 33 games, but a couple of eye-catching displays against elite opposition have had scouts from all over England flocking to Brugge in recent months.
Dennis exploded onto the scene with a stunning, if rather fortuitous, double away at the Santiago Bernabau last autumn before lifting a stunning lob into Manchester United’s net during a recent Europa League clash.
And, blessed with explosive pace and the ability to run in behind the opposition backline, Dennis promises to offer something different to Sheffield United’s rather one-dimensional frontline.
