Sunderland have been offered Fenerbache duo Emmanuel Emenike and Gregory van der Wiel in part-exchange for out-of-favour pair Jeremain Lens and Wahbi Khazri, according to Fotomac.
The two creative wide-men have struggled to break into David Moyes’ side – with the 29-year-old Dutchman deemed surplus to requirements earlier this year and loaned out to the Istanbul giants.

But the Super Lig side are yet to agree a fee with the Black Cats for the Holland international to stay at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium on a permanent basis.
The Turkish club are also interested in an 18-month-loan deal for Tunisia international Khazri – who has made just four Premier League starts this campaign with the Wearsiders boss preferring academy graduates Duncan Watmore and Lynden Gooch to the 25-year-old.
The Yellow Canaries, and former Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat, brought Lens to the North East for £10.2 million in June 2015 from Dynamo Kiev, and is now keen to reunite their relationship on a long-term basis.
The 69-year-old is willing to let fringe-striker Emenike and ex-Paris Saint Germain defender van der Wiel join the Black Cats in order to secure his January targets.
With Moyes not being able to add to his squad without considerable departures, the Scot may look at this as a perfect opportunity to offload some dead-wood and bring in players to key areas.
