Mauricio Pochettino is trying to get rid of the high earner…
Tottenham Hotspur forward Emmanuel Adebayor is apparently a target for AS Roma, according to Eurosport.
The Togo international could be allowed to leave White Hart Lane for free, with his wages a major drain on the budget at the club.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played since October, and was granted compassionate leave in December.
With Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino seeming to prefer youth in his starting line up, it looks like the more experienced player could leave.
This news has caught the eye of the Giallorossi, who may need a new striker with Mattia Destro looking likely to move to AC Milan in the near future.
Manager Rudi Garcia will want a replacement quickly, as they look to challenge Juventus for the Scudetto.
The former Arsenal man’s contract expires in the summer, and this could be a way for Tottenham to get him off the books early without having to pay for the last three months of his deal.
The transfer could also mean that Adebayor gets to play in the Champions League again.
