Former Super Eagles Striker Set For N2.5bn China Deal
Former Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike, may soon be jumping the ship to China as he is increasingly losing his relevance in mainstream European football circles.
Since making a loan move to relegation-haunted La Liga side, Las Palmas, Emenike is yet to kick the ball but reports are suggesting he is wanted in China by one of the newly promoted teams in the Chinese Super League.
As reported by SCORENigeria, a planned five million pound a year deal is in the works for the Nigerian striker who is presently unsettled at Las Palmas in Spain.
With the China deal lurking in the wings, Emenike will have to call off the remaining two years on his contract at Greek champions Olympiacos after his loan spell at Las Palmas in La Liga in June.
“One of the newly promoted clubs in the Chinese Super League have contacted Emenike for a possible transfer,” a source revealed.
“This promoted club are ready to rescue Emenike from Greece, where he has endured a turbulent time both on and off the pitch.”
Emenike has previously played in South Africa, Russia, Turkey, Dubai as well as in the Premier League with West Ham United.
