Emmanuel Adebayor is reluctant to leave Tottenham Hotspur, the
Turkish side Besiktas would like to take Adebayor off Spurs’ hands but the player wants to remain in the Premier League, having only joined Tottenham from Manchester City a year ago in a £5.5m deal. Adebayor is ready to start the new season as part of Andre Villas-Boas’ squad even though Spurs are eager to listen to offers for both Adebayor and Jermain Defoe.
Adebayor, 29, scored 18 goals in 37 games during his initial loan spell at Spurs in the 2011/12 campaign but the goals dried up following his permanent move, the former Arsenal centre-forward netting only eight in 32 appearances last season.
Villas-Boas wants to overhaul his front line, bringing in Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke as Adebayor’s replacement and swapping Barcelona forward David Villa for Defoe. But Adebayor has thus far resisted any attempt to sell him on while Defoe also remains a Tottenham player.
