Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Striker’s future no clearer; January arrivals linked

Adebayor And Saha V Arsenal

A select round-up of news relating to Tottenham, including January targets and Emmanuel Adebayor’s future.

Tottenham Hotspur may have reached for the chequebook a number of times this summer, but it doesn’t appear to be worn-out just yet.

The Daily Mail reports that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ready to sanction further moves in January, with Real Madrid’s Fabio Coentrao and a new striker topping Andre Villas-Boas’s shopping list.

The left-back almost signed on loan for Manchester United on transfer deadline day, despite being linked with a switch to White Hart Lane for much of the summer. But after that deal fell through, he could be available again when the window re-opens.

And while Roberto Soldado has started his Spurs career with a bang, he is one of only two recognised and currently playing forwards in the squad.

In potential outs, Emmanuel Adebayor is reportedly a target for Queens Park Rangers, although Harry Redknapp has admitted to Sky Sports that it is unlikely the Togo striker will play in the second tier.

I would love Manny here but I couldn’t see him dropping down to the Championship,” the former Spurs boss said.

But having seen a potential move to Germany fall through in the summer, Adebayor may have a decision to make, at least a short-term one, for the good of his career.
