Besiktas remain keen on signing Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor if they can escape a ban for alleged match-fixing.
The Turkish club face a ban from this season’s Europa League, but they have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and are confident of getting the decision overturned.
Much has been made of Adebayor’s future at Tottenham after a disappointing campaign last season. However there are some fans who believe the Togo striker can reach his previous heights with a full pre-season under his belt with Spurs.
Adebayor on his day can act as the perfect foil for Bale, but if he is to remain at the Lane his form in August must show that he is back to the old Ade we know.
“We are interested in Adebayor, the transfer could still go ahead,” Besiktas president, Fikret Orman is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.
“The deal breaker for Adebayor was whether we would play in Europe this season, as soon as we are cleared I will travel to London and complete the deal.”
