With the exit door moving increasingly closer, a surprise move from Italian club Parma for Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor looks unlikely due to the player’s wages, according to the London
Adebayor has not played for Spurs in months after injury and compassionate leave but since becoming available again has not been used by boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The club are said to be willing to listen to offers for the striker – with interest from Qatar and the United States thought to be high – while Italian club Parma had shown shock interest in the 30-year-old Togo international.
However having held preliminary talks with the player’s representatives the club are not thought to want to follow up any interest because of the players current £100,000 a week salary.
Parma do not hold the financial firepower they used to and could look to identify other targets as they bid to find goals that will aid their escape from relegation.
Any deal for Adebayor would need a significant contribution from Tottenham and the reputation of Daniel Levy means it is highly unlikely the club would be willing to pay a player that is no longer on their books.
