Out of favour Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor could be about to move to Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor, according to LigTV.
Adebayor’s representatives have reportedly been in touch with the Turkish side with club president Recep Bolukbasi is on the lookout for high profile signings to celebrate the opening of their new stadium, The Crocodile Arena.
Bursaspor were only recently linked with a staggering move for former Barcelona legend Ronaldinho, according to reports from Eurosport, and a move for Adebayor would be surprising.
In an interview, Bolukbasi said, “We want to sign a star player to our club in time for the opening of our new stadium next season.”
The Togo international has found himself somewhat cast adrift recently by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, featuring in just 14 games this season, scoring only twice.
Adebayor would certainly fit the bill of a star player, having the likes of Manchester City, Monaco, Real Madrid and Arsenal on his CV, though with talk of a move to Chelsea from the Guardian, it is questionable whether the striker would want to up sticks and move to Turkey.
Bursaspor’s new ground, The Crocodile Arena, will have a capacity of 45,000 and is expected to be completed this summer.
