Fenerbahce have set a €7 million price tag on their Nigerian international striker Emmanuel Emenike.
The Sun newspaper states that the Hammers have held talks with Fenerbahce striker Emenike, who has played on loan at UAE club Al Ain.
Emenike joined the Dubai-based club Al Ain on loan from Fenerbahce, but has now returned to Turkey.
According to ESPN West Ham chairman David Sullivan has confirmed that they were hoping to sign a new striker on loan and that Emenike is their main target.
Tottenham were linked with a €10 million move in January for Emenike by the newspaper Metro.
Emenike scored only five goals in 34 league appearances last season in all competitions.
The Nigerian international was booed by his own fans in the recent Istanbul derby against Beşiktaş. Emenike took off his shirt and walked off the field in protest but later returned to the game.
