Emmanuel Adebayor was the subject of many a Tottenham Hotspur news story over the course of the summer and it appears as if January will be no different.
The Togo striker was heavily linked with a move to Turkish club Besiktas in the past transfer window and their vice-president Ahmet Nur Cebi has told Turkish television that they plan to try their luck once more.
Adebayor has been in the Tottenham wilderness for some time after being made to train with the development team, but has recently come back into AVB’s plans when he was named in the squad which travelled to Moldova to face FC Sheriff. Ade has had to deal with the loss of his brother which happened while the squad were in Hong Kong and went on compassionate leave as a result – hopefully he can now kick-start his career and put everything behind him.
Whether Adebayor will get an opportunity to rekindle the form which made us sign him over the past two months remains to be seen. Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe remain ahead of him in the pecking order and we may get a better idea if Harry Kane is when AVB names his squad for Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup tie against Hull City at White Hart Lane – the second meeting of both sides in a matter of days.
Fans seem split on if Adebayor can still do a job in a Tottenham shirt. What do you think? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
“We were interested in Adebayor in August,” Besiktas vice-present Ahmet Nur Cebi told Besiktas TV.
“The club will target Adebayor again in January, but it’s difficult to sign such marketable players.”
