Upton Park side set sights on White Hart Lane back-up player.
West Ham are reportedly considering a loan move to sign Tottenham forward Emmanuel Adebayor according to the Daily Mirror.
Andre Villas-Boas is apparently desperate to offload the 29 year old Togo international and increasingly keen to have his massive wage packet wiped off the balance sheet and will surely be open to a loan departure of the former Arsenal, just so long as the Hammers cover his salary, or at the very least a large portion of it.
Tottenham elected to sign Adebayor after a successful season long loan spell at White Hart Lane but his form last term was in marked contrast to what went before and Andre Villas-Boas has invested upwards of £50m to bring in Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela and has seemingly no need for the experienced forward.
Adebayor is yet to play a single minute of first team football this term and managed just five goals in 25 Premier League appearances last term.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is keen to strengthen his attacking options with his East London side managing seven goals in seven Premier League fixtures thus far this season though will certainly have been impressed with his side’s 3-0 win away at Tottenham last weekend.
