English Premier League giants, West Ham United, have offered erstwhile Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike, an opportunity to play top flight football again as they seek to bring him to London on a loan deal.
Emenike’s future has been thrown into uncertainty after he abruptly ended his loan move to United Arab Emirates’ side Al Ain despite hitting 15 goals in all competitions for the club in less than six months.
His Turkish club, Fenerbahce, are also not keen to have him back despite his new-found form. However, West Ham United are having a problem of their own as manager Slaven Bilic has been hit by injuries to Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll, leaving him with Nikica Jelavic as his only out-and-out senior striker.
The coach wants to ease the strikers problem at his club with a deal for Emenike.
West Ham have already achieved success in taking a player from Abu Dhabi, having signed midfielder Manuel Lanzini from Al Jazira in the summer.
Emenike has played 37 times for Nigeria, scoring nine goals, and has also played for Spartak Moscow.
