Konyar recently claimed that Spurs are interested in the Nigerian international but denied being in official talks.

“Tottenham only really have one striker right now so it is not a surprise that they are interested,” Konyar told Radyospor.

“However, I do not think Fenerbahçe have received an official bid yet.”

Fenerbahçe responded to claims made by Konya by releasing a statement underlining that they do not want Emenike to leave.

The statement read: “Emmanuel Emenike is a Fenerbahçe player and has a contract with us until 2017, there are currently no transfer talks.”

The Nigerian international does however, have a €20 million release clause.

AC Milan and Fiorentina have also been closely linked with the powerful striker.

The 27-year-old striker is reported to have fallen out of favour with Fenerbahçe manager Ismail Kartal and has only scored twice this season.

The Nigerian international was joint top scorer at the 2013 African Cup of Nations and also had and impressive World Cup and helped Nigeria reach the Round of 16.
