SPURS are lining up a sensational swoop for Emmanuel Adebayor.
The North Londoners want the unsettled Manchester City striker on loan in the January transfer window.
They also fancy an option to buy him at the end of the season. And while the sides are bitter rivals for a top-four Premier League spot, City have not ruled out a deal.
A Tottenham insider said: “There is a real chance we could land Manu in the transfer window – although a lot does depend on who pays his wages.
“City expect us to pay the bulk but the big question is how far our board are prepared to go.”
Former Arsenal striker Adebayor, 26, earns £160,000 a week – double what anyone else is on at White Hart Lane.
Last year he hit 14 goals but this term has played only eight Premier League games and four of his five goals have been in the Europa League. (The Sun)
There is a lot of speculation going around about the future of Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor and this latest story is indeed shocking but could well come to fruition as Roberto Mancini may feel it better to offload a player who is clearly unhappy about being a bench warmer at the Eastlands club.
The Togo international has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus but now Harry Redknapp has apparently made his interest in the former Arsenal man known. The White Hart Lane boss is not very happy with the form shown by his current crop of strikers who have netted just five Premier League goals this season and therefore the Spurs manager may feel that a move for the 26 year old may make sense.
Any move for the striker will be an expensive one as Adebayor only arrived at Manchester City for a £25m fee in the summer of 2009 and there would be the small matter of finding the cash to pay his huge wages. However there can be no doubting the player’s ability to score Premier League goals at a consistent rate, something that has clearly interested in Redknapp.
