Brazilian striker Bobo is considering a return to the A-League in January with Adelaide United one possible destination.

The Advertiser reports that the Reds are contemplating a move for the former Sydney FC man should it work financially with current marquee striker Baba Diawara set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines after requiring knee surgery. 

Bobo has made 11 appearances for Alanyaspor to date scoring two goals and found himself stuck on the bench eight times. 

The 33 year old set an A-League goal-scoring record last season for the Sky Blues and Adelaide United aren't the only side that could benefit from his services.

Melbourne City are set to let Bruno Fornaroli go in January with Bobo an ideal replacement for the Uruguayan and the club likely able to match any financial demands.

Former Fenerbahce and West Ham striker Emmanuel Emenike has declared his interest in playing in Australia and is confident of delivering for an A-League side.

Sydney-based agent Engin Durmus revealed Emenike's desire to play Down Under to The World Game , though a move to China is also a possibility.

The 31 year old is currently without a club after injury interrupted a loan spell to Las Palmas in January with Olympiacos letting the attacker leave the club permanently in July.

Emenike's most prolific spell in front of goal came across two seasons with Turkish side Karabukspor where he scored 30 goals across 51 appearances.

The A-League's all-time leading goal scorer has touched down in Australia for a 'holiday' after a difficult few months with Japanese side Sanfrecce Hiroshima.

Berisha has played just 67 minutes for his new side after joining them having sealed another A-League championship with Melbourne Victory in May. 

Contracted until the end of next year, Sanfrecce would have to end Berisha's contract early if he was any chance of gracing the A-League this season. 

A shortage of strikers in the competition right now make Berisha hot property with Adelaide United and Melbourne City two clubs that could particularly use his services in January.
