Spurs could offload striking duo to fund Jackson Martinez move

Tottenham Hotspur are considering offloading misfiring duo Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado to fund a move for Porto hit man Jackson Martinez, the Daily Express is reporting.

The paper has claimed Portuguese reports say Spurs are desperate to land the £40m Colombian as they look to add the goals they desperately need to their game.

The rise of Harry Kane means boss Mauricio Pochettino has growing confidence of ditching the striking pair as they attempt to land Martinez.

Kane has bagged himself 11 goals in all competitions in his first full breakthrough season at the club – while Adebayor and Soldado have mustered just three league goals between them.

It is thought that getting rid of the two strikers will save Spurs a whopping £10.8m in wages per year and giving them the room to move for the highly priced Martinez.

The striker is viewed as one of the most deadly finishers in Europe and his record for Porto speaks for itself – 111 games in all competitions has seen him bag 77 goals to date.

Adebayor and Soldado have been linked with Galatasaray and Inter Milan respectively but it remains to be seen if Chairman Daniel Levy would be willing to let two of the club’s three recognised strikers leave in quick succession – at the risk of any move for Martinez not paying off.
