Emenike Wants To Play In Australia – Durmus


A Sydney-based players representative, Engin Durmus has confirmed that he is currently working on the possibility of getting a top club for former Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike in Australia, where he says the all-action attacker is ready to tear it up.

Footballlive.ng reports further that, although Durmus also disclosed that Emenike has offers on the table from Turkey, China and Qatar, he disclosed that the striker prefers a deal in Australia’s A-League.

Durmus said the 31-year-old striker, who has 86 goals in 200-odd games in top-flight club football, plus 37 appearances for Nigeria, can shine for Sydney FC, Wellington Phoenix, Brisbane Roar or Melbourne City, if any of the A-League giants decide to take him on.

This comes as another door of opportunity for Emenike, who could not play a single match while on loan at Las Palmas last season and then left Olympiakos of Greece in June.

Emenike, who has already recovered from a knee injury that prevented him from playing for Las Palmas, is valued at $28m and Durmus believes the former Cape Coast of South Africa, Karabukspor and Fernebahce of Turkey as well as ex-Spartak Moscow of Russia and Al-Ain of United Arab Emirates star can rain goals Down Under.

Durmus added: “He’s supremely confident and says he’s fit and raring to go again. He’s guaranteeing goals.

“He is looking for a new challenge and at 31 clearly has a lot of football left in him.

“Whether we get to see that in Australia I don’t know, but the desire is there and so is the quality.

“His expectation would be to come here and hit the ground running and deliver on those promises.”
