    The Watford forward impressed in the Premier League last season in their relegation campaign, hitting 10 goals in 33 games.

    The Hornets stand to make a significant profit on the 24-year-old, having signed him for just £3m from Club Brugge in 2021.

    West Ham had been linked with Dennis, but Forest look set to win the race to land him.

    He featured in their opening two games of the Championship season but is yet to register a goal or assist.

    Swiss midfielder Freuler could also provide Steve Cooper’s side with some valuable experience.

    The 30-year-old has played more than 200 Serie A games for Atalanta and has been capped 46 times for Switzerland.

    Forest have undergone a huge overhaul this summer with 12 new signings, headlined by a double swoop for Jesse Lingard and Dean Henderson.

    Henderson joins on loan from Manchester United, while Lingard left the Red Devils at the end of his contract and chose to join Forest on a free transfer ahead of West Ham.

    Other signings include Neco Williams from Liverpool and Omar Richards from Bayern Munich.
