West Ham set to sign Nigerian international striker

West Ham have reached an agreement with Fenerbahce to sign Emmanuel Emenike on loan until the end of the season with a future buyout clause option according to Fanatik.

The report claims that the 28-year-old striker will undergo his medial before officially signing for the Premier League outfit.

The Express also reported that a deal has been struck between the Hammers and Fenerbahce to sign the Nigerian international striker.


West Ham are currently facing an injury crisis upfront with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho sidelined.

The east London based side have also been closely linked with Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz following Slaven Bilic confirming the prolific striker is on his transfer list.

Bilic told Hürriyet reporter İzzet Çapa: “There is a striker problem right now at West Ham and if the board agree to sign a forward Burak Yilmaz is on my transfer list.”

Emenike failed to settle in last season netting just five times goals over the course of the Turkish Super League campaign and fell out with the fans.


The Nigerian international spent the first half of the season on loan at Al Ain scoring seven times in 11 appearances but has returned to Turkey following the opening of the winter transfer window.
