White Hart Lane boss could consider cheeky move for former Emirates man.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp may be interested in making a move for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor as he looks to strengthen his side for the coming season. Roberto Mancini has insisted that the Togolese international is very much part of his first team plans but the former Arsenal man has already stated his interest in a proposed move to Juventus fuelling speculation that he isn’t entirely happy at Eastlands.
The 26 year old had a decent, if not spectacular, first season at the club and with all the recent arrivals and the likely return of Robinho to the club from his loan spell, the powerfully built forward may be worried he could lose his starting spot for the forthcoming season. This may be what led to his comments relating to a potential move to Serie A.
A similar occurrence angered Arsene Wenger when Adebayor attempted to engineer a move to AC Milan and within a year the player had to be offloaded to Man City. In his first season at the club the former Monaco man managed 14 goals whilst Carlos Tevez powered on to register 29 goals and collect an array of Player of the Year awards.
Harry Redknapp is thought to be looking to bring in new strikers and has been linked with moves for the likes of Klaas Jan Huntelaar and is reportedly considering offloading Peter Crouch whilst White Hart Lane forwards Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko are also by no means first team certainties.
A move for Emmanuel Adebayor would probably run at around £22m and a bid could well fall on deaf ears but nonetheless is appears to be a move Redknapp is considering.
Adebayor quotes relating to potential City exit: “I will be sorry to leave the Premier League, but in Europe there are other top leagues. Juventus are a great club in which I would like to play for.”
