West Ham are seemingly on the verge of signing one striker, but letting one go too.

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham striker Nikica Jelavic is set for a move to China - but Fenerbahce's Emmanuel Emenike is close to joining the Hammers.

The Hammers have made only one signing so far this month having snapped up Sam Byram from Leeds United, but things appear to be hotting up at Upton Park in the final hours of the transfer window.

The Daily Mail report that striker Nikica Jelavic is set for a move to China, having been made a lucrative offer by Guangzhou Evergrande.

Ramires just left Chelsea to join Jiangsu Suning, and it seems that Jelavic is also set for a move to the Far East to join up with Brazilian boss Luiz Felipe Scolari with Guangzhou Evergrande.

The 30-year-old only joined West Ham from Hull on deadline day in September, but having failed to make much of an impact under his compatriot Slaven Bilic, the Croatian is now set to leave - making way for a replacement.

It's stated that Fenerbahce hitman Emmanuel Emenike, who has been out on loan in the United Arab Emirates with Al-Ain, has completed a medical with West Ham, and will seemingly join the club before the deadline.

The 28-year-old Nigerian international, who possesses great power and pace, will be familiar to Hammers boss Bilic, having faced his Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas sides whilst playing for their rivals Spartak Moscow and Fenerbahce.

With Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho both out injured, Emenike will give West Ham a much-needed boost in the final third, with a loan deal until the end of the season in the pipeline.

Will Emenike be a good signing for West Ham?
