Report outlines price West Ham United can pay to make Emmanuel Emenike’s move permanent

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United could make Emmanuel Emenike’s move permanent, if he impresses.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, West Ham United are able to make Emmanuel Emenike’s move a permanent one for £8.1 million.

West Ham have snapped Emenike up until the end of the season on a temporary move, but they have already agreed a price with Fenerbahce to make the switch a longer term one.

The Hammers did a similar deal for Manuel Lanzini, when they signed him on a loan deal at the start of the season.

Emenike has been brought in by Slaven Bilic to increase his side’s attacking threat.

West Ham currently have a number of strikers on the treatment table, and Emenike is likely to have a prominent role to play, as a result.

Bilic knows the striker well, and he will compete with the likes of Diafra Sakho, Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia for a place up front.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Emenike’s arrival could be bad news for Nikica Jelavic, as the Croatian forward could be forced to leave Upton Park.
