Emmanuel Emenike may be on his way to the English Premier League as Turkish giants Fenerbahce, have held advanced negotiation with West Ham United.
It was gathered that Fenerbahce have asked EPL side West Ham United to pay £7 million for the 28 years old striker, who retired from the Nigeria national team last year under a controversial circumstance. West Ham have held talks with Emenike, whose loan spell at Al Ain in Dubai was cut short.
Hammers boss, Slaven Bilic knows Emenike from his time in Turkey as Besiktas manager and the striker has emerged as a possible January signing.
The report said Fenerbahce want at least £7million for their striker on a permanent deal or thrash out terms for another loan.
The news comes as Hammers co-owner David Sullivan revealed the club are seeking a striker from a “very strange” league in the January transfer window.
He said: “We are looking, long-term, for a 20-goal-a-season striker.
“There’s a possibility that a striker will come in on loan, with the option to buy, within the next seven days. He’s an overseas striker.
“If I told you, you wouldn’t believe it. I can’t tell you which league because then you’ll know exactly who it is.
“We are signing from a very strange league. But he has played in higher league
