Turkish giants Fenerbahce have asked EPL side West Ham United to pay £7 million for Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike.
According to The Sun, West Ham United have held talks with Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike, who has played on loan at UAE club Al Ain.
Sources close to the player revealed to Garbersports that the Nigerian has been in London all week in order to negotiate a deal.
“Hammers boss Slaven Bilic knows Emenike from his time in Turkey as Besiktas manager and the striker has emerged as a possible January signing,” claimed the source.
Nevertheless, what could appear to be a stumbling block is the transfer fee. “Fenerbahce want at least £7million for their striker on a permanent deal or thrash out terms for another loan.”
West Ham co-owner David Sullivan confirmed that the club are in talks with a new striker by saying: “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 leagues.”
Hinting at the summer bid for Bony, Sullivan added: “We are looking, long-term, for a 20-goal-a-season striker.”
