Reports from England indicate that Emenike who was recently released by United Arab Emirates Club, Al Ain, is set to undergo medical on Thursday, while the Hammers will prepare a work permit application.
There was interest in Emenike from Crystal Palace, but Alan Pardew has opted to sign Emmanuel Adebayor on a short-term deal. The Togolese striker was unveiled on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Fenerbahce have also contacted Roma about signing Seydou Doumbia, as a replacement for the outgoing Emenike.
