West Ham are hoping to wrap up a deal for former Nigeria international Emmanuel Emenike before the end of this week, according to reports emanating from the British Telegraph.
The Hammers manager Slaven Bilic is in the market for a frontman following the injuries to Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll.
Emenike spent the first half of this season on loan at Al Ain but a return to Fenerbahce, his parent club, may not be feasible at the point given his lack of first - team opportunities.
It has been claimed that West Ham have entered discussions with the 28 - year - old’s entourage regarding a loan move until the end of this season.
Emenike has played 37 times for Nigeria, scoring nine goals, and has also played for Spartak Moscow.
West Ham will initially take 28-year-old Emenike on loan until the end of the season before reassessing their options in the summer, when Manchester City’s Wilfried Bony is likely to be among their top targets.
