Harry Redknapp believes that Emmanuel Adebayor can be a hit with Spurs fans, since Arsenal fans already hate him.
The striker is on the erage of a one year-loan deal at Spurs with chairman Daniel Levy in advanced talks with Manchester City.
Redknapp said: “Arsenal fans hate him so ours will love him. He’ll be a hero because he upset Arsenal.”
Redknapp added: “He was fantastic when we played Madrid. We couldn’t handle him.
“He was almost unplayable when he was with Arsenal and that’s why City paid £25m for him.
“If he comes to Tottenham with his head on and really wants to play, he could be sensational.
“The chairman has been talking to Manchester City about him and I genuinely don’t know where they’re at.
“But it’s probably going to be a loan deal anyway so we can’t go wrong.”
