West Ham have hit complications over their bid to sign Emmanuel Emenike but are hopeful of completing a loan deal for the striker before the transfer window closes.
It is understood the Hammers have agreed terms with the Nigeria international but have yet to reach a conclusion with either his parent club, Fenerbahce, or the UAE club Al Ain, where he is on loan.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is an admirer of the 28‑year-old and is keen to bring him in on loan with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.Should the deal fall through, West Ham may turn to Galatasaray’s 30-year-old front man Burak Yilmaz.
Bilic, meanwhile, today challenged midfielder Alex Song to maintain the levels he showed in Saturday’s 2-2 home draw with Manchester City.
