Tottenham latest, Adebayor sale considered for January, Laudrup on Eriksen

Emmanuel Adebayor

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Thursday evening.

Tottenham are keen to sell Emmanuel Adebayor in the January transfer window according to the London Evening Standard.

The report suggests that there are clubs from Turkey who are interested in taking the Togo international on, but they believe his wage demands could be a huge stumbling block.

Adebayor currently commands £100,000 a week at White Hart Lane and it is thought he would want a pay rise for any move to Turkey.

Paul Mitchell, the head of recruitment who is to join the club from Southampton will help the club attract the world's best young talent according to Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino worked with Mitchell during his time at St Mary's, and according to the London Evening Standard, Pochettino thought the club could do better when it comes to identifying talent from abroad.

The report suggests it was one of the reasons that led Chairman Daniel Levy to appointing the Argentine as the new man to take the club forward.

Danish football legend Brian Laudrup has had a few positive words to say about Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen, saying he is in the bracket of players who are 'international class'.

Laudrup is quoted by the Spurs website, saying: “Christian has tremendous ability with his passing. He needs players around him to make the runs as he’s not the quickest himself, but it’s difficult to say how good he can be.

“It would be wrong of me to compare him to players who are on another planet but he’s in that bracket of players who are international class – there’s no doubt about that. There are very few who have the level of class that Christian does – without putting any more pressure on him than that!”
