There are indications that Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike will be hitting London in the coming days to have a medical even as the 28-year old seeks to complete a loan deal with Premier League side, West Ham United.
Reports from Turkey suggest that West Ham have already reached an agreement with Emenike’s Turkish club and a six-month loan is now set to be signed with the Turkish newspaper Fanatik also hinting of a possible buy-out clause in the contract set to be signed.
The Hammers have been searching for a new striker this month, given that both Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho have been struck down with injuries recently.
Enner Valencia scored twice against Manchester City on Saturday, but manager Slaven Bilic unsurprisingly wants to add another option to his ranks, as he chases European qualification this term.
Emenike is no stranger to the West Ham Manager, whilst Bilic was managing in Russia with Lokomotiv Moscow, the former Super Eagles front man was playing for rivals Spartak Moscow, and then when Bilic moved over to Turkey to manage Besiktas, Emenike played for rivals Fenerbahce.
