Emmanuel Emenike: Spartak Moscow striker linked with Liverpool

Emenike recently impressed at the Africa Cup of Nations in helping Nigeria to glory and he finished the tournament as top scorer with four goals.

The 25-year-old, who joined Spartak from Fenerbahce in 2011, scored twice against Celtic in the UEFA Champions League group phase and has been linked with a £7million move to Liverpool.

However, while speculation of interest from Liverpool excites Emenike, he is waiting to see if he will have the opportunity to play in England.

"It is paper talk at the moment, but a club like Liverpool makes people dream," the forward told Sky Sports.

"Growing up in Africa, you hear about the Kop and you want to score goals at that end. It would be amazing, like winning the Africa Cup of Nations.

"I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League and, if the opportunity arrives, I will be happy."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
