West Ham transfer news: Emmanuel Emenike agrees personal terms
West Ham United have agreed personal terms with Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike about a loan move to Upton Park.
Emenike joined the Turkish giants in 2013 but the 28-year-old striker was sent on loan to Qatar last year for a short spell at Al Ain.
He played 15 league games and scored nine goals, showing that he could still be a threat in the final third after scoring five goals in 35 appearances the year before with Fenerbahce.
However, West Ham are now looking to acquire his signature and are close to securing a loan deal, with Ed Aarons of the Guardian confirming that personal terms have been agreed.
The journalist has stated that having agreed personal terms with the powerful forward, the Hammers must now agree terms with his parent club.
Slaven Bilic confirmed over the weekend that they were keen on signing the former Nigeria international, and it looks like he’s about to get his man.
Bilic said to the Daily Express: “We are linked with a few strikers – he’s the one. We’re going to see what happens now.”
Emenike played for Spartak Moscow prior to joining Fenerbahce but he has struggled to really impressed since 2011/12 when he hit 13 goals in 22 league matches.
In 66 games for Fenerbahce, he has scored just 17 goals so Bilic will hope that he can rekindle his finer form, though Emenike is likely to play back-up to both Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia.
