Man City eye Emenike

Reigning English Premier League kings, Manchester City are reportedly leading a trio of English clubs in the hunt for Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike.

According to a report on kickoffnigeria website based on information from reliable sources,Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are also in the race.

Emenike’s club,Fenerbahce,according to the report have been made aware of the interest, but kickoffnigeria sources say the Turkish giants are unwilling to part with their prize forward, except otherwise persuaded by a hefty fee, estimated to be in the region of at least €20 million.

Emenike is expected to lead Nigeria’s attack at the World Cup and his impressive strike rate of 10 goals in 21 internationals means the clubs involved hope to strike a deal with Fenerbahce before the World Cup, to forestall a bloated valuation in the event of the player having a good tournament.

Sources close to the player confirmed the interest to the website, but say Emenike will not move unless it is to join a club playing in the Champions League.

Emenike rejoined Fenerbahce last August from Spartak Moscow, and has scored 12 goals in an injury-restricted 28 appearances and weighed in with 9 assists.
