Spartak Moscow striker Emmanuel Emenike dreams of returning to Fenerbahce, according to Turkish newspaper, Sabah.
“My dream is to play for Fenerbahce at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium,” Emenike said. “When I was playing for Karabuk I always told myself I would play for Fenerbahce one day but when I finally achieved my goal I was forced to leave.
“Since then I have always hoped of returning to Fenerbahce.”
The Yellow Canaries released an official statement confirming that negotiations are underway.
Spartak manager, Valeriy Karpin, said: “If somebody wants to leave we don’t want to keep them locked up.”
Fenerbahce signed Emenike from Karabukspor for €9 million in 2011 but the Nigerian international was sold to Spartak for €10 million without playing a single game for the Yellow Canaries after allegations that he was involved in a match-fixing scandal.
He was however acquitted after prosecutors were unable to prove his involvement in the scandal.
Emenike, however, still has three-years left on his contract with Spartak and the Turkish club could spend as much as €15 million to sign the striker who finished as top scorer at the last Africa Cup of Nations.
