The Nigeria international has seen his profile rise considerably during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

He has found the target on three occasions at that tournament, helping his country to the semi-final stage.

It is now being suggested that Emenike could be the next Nigerian to grace the Premier League.

Reading, Liverpool and Arsenal are all said to have sent scouts to watch the 25-year-old in action, but he is paying little attention to the speculation at present.

"I am playing in Russia at the moment and I have a contract that I intend to respect," said Emenike.

"But to be linked with the Premier League is a dream come true.

"I would love to play there in my career. There are many great clubs there."
