Nigeria World Cup striker Emmanuel Emenike has exclusively told AfricanFootball.com he is not desperate to play in the English Premier League even after he has been linked with a move to Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.
The powerful striker, who won the Turkish Super League title with Fenerbahce last season, said he is happy at the Istanbul club and he will be ready to help them defend their championship in the new term.
“For now, I can’t say much on transfer because I am still on holidays and my mind is with Fenerbahce. So, when I return to Turkey, I will know if there is any official approach, but for now I want to try and relax and prepare well for the pre-season,” Emenike toldAfricanFootball.com
“Like I said, I am happy in Istanbul. I am not desperate for any move away from Fenerbahce. I am only hoping for a better season than what I did in the past season with Fenerbahce, but if there were official offers then my club will be responsible. They have the final say, I am only preparing for a better season because I am respecting my contract with Fenerbahce.”
The 27-year-old forward scored 13 goals in the league last season and promised even more in the coming season.
“Last season was great for me, though I started scoring goals late I was able to score 13 goals and that contributed to us winning the league,” he further said.
“My target is to surpass that this season and win more trophies. This season should be greater and better than last season because I am working hard to achieve a lot and make a bigger impact.”
