According to reports monitored by SL10.ng from the media in Turkey, Fenerbache are set to move for on-loan Standard Liege forward Imoh Ezekiel to replace unsettled Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike.
Emenike has battled a goal-drought this season which has resulted in a poor relationship with the fans and it made the Nigerian almost walked off the pitch after being booed.
21-year-old Ezekiel was reportedly scouted by Fenerbache scout Müjdat Yetkiner over the weekend in their playoff game against Anderlecht where the Nigerian scored his side’s lone goal in the 1-1 draw but also got sent off.
It is reported that despite his sending off Yetkiner was impressed by what he saw of the Nigerian and although they lead the race for his signature they will have to fend off interest from the likes of Galatassary and Trabzonspor with German Bundesliga side Schalke 04 and Borrusia Monchengladbach reportedly eyeing him as well.
He is valued at 12 million Euros by his parent owners Al-Arabi but clubs willing to snap him off permanently in the summer can reportedly get him for a price of 8 million as the player’s willingness to stay in Europe as oppose to returning to the Middle East will work in their favour.
