Tottenham full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto believes that Emmanuel Adebayor would prove the be the perfect foil for Jermain Defoe.
Adebayor is being linked with a season-long loan move to Spurs after falling out of favour at Manchester City.
“I played against him when I was young [in France] so I know him well,” said Assou-Ekotto in the Daily Telegraph.
“He is a little bit like Peter Crouch but with more mobility. He will find a good complicity with Defoe because Jermain is used to playing with that style of player.
“We saw what he did against us in Madrid last season, so I am sure he will help us.
“If the manager signs him it’s not to finish fifth or sixth. He’s a player from one of the big four and if we get a player from one of those clubs, it’s for Tottenham to finish in the big four.
“We know his reputation but we don’t care about that if he scores many goals.”
