Emenike was closely linked with a move back to Russia and to Tottenham during the winter transfer window following comments by his agent Erdem Konyar.

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.”

The Nigerian international striker joined Fenerbahçe last summer from Spartak Moscow for €13 million, and scored 12 goals as well as providing 9 assists last season.

Emenike has three goals in all competitions for the Yellow Canaries this season.

The 27-year-old 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.
