Despite the goal drought facing Emmanuel Emenike, Arsenal are scouting the powerful Fenerbahce striker ahead of a possible £15m deal in the January transfer window. A United Kingdom newspaper, Metro Sport made the latest report.
Emenike has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in the last 18 months, with Chelsea believed to be close to bagging him during the summer.
But now Arsenal are the front runners for his signature with Turkish newspaper Milliyet reporting that Arsene Wenger is lining up a deal for the new year.
It’s claimed that the Frenchman has asked his scouts to watch Emenike closely with Arsenal ready to spend £15m on him if he impresses.
The 27-year-old scored 12 goals in 28 matches last season and picked up nine assists. But experts of the English League suggest that Wenger may have opted to chase the Nigerian given that both Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are still off the field of play because of the respective injuries.
