Despite not having a superb performance for Nigeria at the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, latest reports reveal that Chelsea are ready to allow Emmanuel Emenike to join them for €19 million.
Dailymail reports that the English club have been approached by the Turkish club Fenerbahce on the Nigerian star.
Emenike scored 12 goals in 28 league games as Fenerbahce won the Super Lig last season.
Many Nigerian football fans believe the 27-year-old striker played below expectations for the Super Eagles at the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Nigeria was defeated 2-0 by France on Monday, 30 June, 2014 to end their world cup campaign in the round of 16.

In a related development, the Blues is reported to have agreed a two-year deal with Tiago Mendes.
The 33-year-old is joining as a free agent after his contract ran out with Atletico Madrid.
The Portuguese made 23 La Liga appearances for the recently-crowned Spanish champions last season and returns to Stamford Bridge after nine years away.
He spent just one season with Chelsea before leaving for Lyon in 2005.
However, his 12 months with the Blues were certainly successful – in total he won three trophies: the Community Shield, the League Cup and the Premier League, scoring four goals in 34 league appearances.
