Turkish giants to try again for forgotten frontman.
Besiktas president Ahmet Nur Cebi has confirmed that the club will be making a second bid to bring outcast Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor to the club when the transfer window reopens in January, Sky Sports reports.
The Turkish giants had targeted the 29-year-old over the summer after he was left out in the cold by manager Andre Villas-Boas. Spurs were keen to listen to offers to get him off of their hands, but no deal could be reached and the Togolese international remains a peripheral figure at White Heart Lane.
And Cebi is hoping that the striker’s continued situation is hopefully going to play into his hands as he continues to monitor the situation in north London.
“We were interested in Adebayor in August,” he told Besiktas TV.
“The club will target Adebayor again in January, but it’s difficult to sign such marketable players.”
Cebi also went on to confirm that Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho very much remains a winter target for the club after the World Cup winner refused to deny talk that he could one day make a return to European football.
Currently with Atletico Mineiro in his homeland, the Turks are staying tight lipped over whether they will be able to prize the 33-year-old away from his current club.
