Tottenham set to offload Adebayor

Tottenham set to offload Adebayor

Tottenham are looking to part ways with misfiring striker Emmanuel Adebayor, in their effort of reducing their wage bill by selling costly players.

Despite a lot of teams said to be interested in services of the 29-year-old Togo international, his high wage demands of around £100,000-a-week could be a major stumbling block. Free-spending Monaco, who have recently won promotion to Ligue 1 and hope to compete PSG, are considered to be the main contenders for the players’ signature.

Adebayor failed to regain last-season’s impressive goal scoring-form, when he netted 17 goals in 33 appearances while being on loan from Man City. Ade managed to find the net just three times in 21 first-team starts this season, making Andre Villas-Boas think that the decision of signing the striker on a permanent basis was an erroneous one.

With Tottenham seriously considering the possibility of signing Damiao, Adebayor looks destined to be moving away from White Hart Lane.
