Emenike, 30, was expected to land in Athens, the Greek capital, for medicals on Monday where he will officially be confirmed as the Olympiakos’ latest summer recruit, CompleteSports writes.

The former Spartak Moscow striker was said to be on the transfer wish-list of many European clubs last season but he opted to stay at Turkish club Fenerbahce until the end of the season before pushing through the Olympiakos deal.

Olympiakos turned to Emenike after their botched attempt to sign Congo DR striker Diumerci Mbokani who failed medicals last week.

The power-playing striker endured a wretched campaign at Fenerbahce under manager Dirk Advocaat last season as he was mostly kept on the bench by the Dutchman in favour of former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie and Senegal’s Moussa Sow.

He still managed to score eight goals in 27 matches in all competitions as he brings down the curtain on his ill-fated move to the Turkish giants.

Emenike called it quits with international football in 2015 after falling out with former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh.

He was top scorer with four goals when Nigeria won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
