Emmanuel Dennis is been linked with several european Heavyweights this season, he’s being regarded as a king in Belgium and he’s being touted to make a move from the Belgian Jupiler League to the top five leagues in Europe.
James Dodd does not think Emmanuel Dennis can step into the shoes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should the Gabon international depart Arsenal in the upcoming transfer window.
Speculation is rife that Aubameyang could move on to pastures new this summer as he will enter the final twelve months of his contract in July and several big teams in Europe are monitoring his situation.
Though Dennis and Aubameyang share some similarities as they are both pacy and capable of being deployed as a winger or striker, the main difference between them is that the Gabonese is a goal poacher extraordinaire, with 61 goals to his name since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium in January 2018.
Dodd likened Dennis replacing Aubameyang to swapping your iPhone for a Nokia 3210, a huge criticism of the young Nigerian, despite the Super Eagles rising star having a better scoring record than the Arsenal captain at the same age.
Aubameyang found the back of the net 32 times before celebrating his 23rd birthday, while the 22-year-old Dennis has tallied 34 career goals across four seasons.
“If Aubameyang were to be replaced by Club Brugge’s Emmanuel Dennis it’d be like going from an iPhone to a Nokia 3210,” Dodd posted on Twitter.
“Haven’t seen loads of him but from what I saw in the Champions League this year…his second touch was a tackle!
