Emmanuel Emenike has given the green light to a transfer to the English Premier League amid speculations that he is wanted by several top clubs there.
The Fenerbahce striker told Ntv Spor that he would be open to a move to England when asked whether Chelsea or Tottenham had made him an offer and if his team Fenerbahce would bless such a move.
“If I got an offer from those clubs [Chelsea and Tottenham] in England which meets Fenerbahce’s valuation and if my club are happy with the offer I would have no problem making the move,” Emenike said.
“I want to stay at Fenerbahçe but if I do get an offer and if my club gives the green light I would seriously consider a transfer.”
The Nigeria international has been closely linked with Chelsea and Tottenham in recent weeks.
Emenike has spearheaded Nigeria’s attack in the World Cup and played an important role in helping the Eagles qualify from Group F.
“I am delighted that we made it out of the group stages,” said Emenike, who is yet to score his first goal at Brazil 2014.
“Messi is a great player, I have played against him twice and in my opinion he is really is something special.
“We lost against Argentina, but I thought we did well and were a little unlucky. I am sure we are going to give France a tough game.”
Nigeria face France in the World Cup last 16 on Monday at the Estádio Nacional de Brasilia Stadium in Brasília.
