Galatasaray vice-president admits that Tottenham Hotspur outcast Emmanuel Adebayor is the type of player they need

The Togolese striker is allowed to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur have spent plenty of money on strikers in the past few seasons. However despite shelling out on Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado at the moment it is the home-grown Harry Kane who is leading the line for Tottenham.

But while Soldado remains present and trying Adebayor has not been in the frame for a while now.

The Togolese international striker is undoubtedly a talented front-man but in his career has also struggled to maintain a long-term presence at any team, because of his often spiky personality.

His contract runs out at the end of the season so Tottenham are ready to let him go, perhaps in January, but not many teams are clamouring to sign a player who, for all intent and purposes, is more trouble than he is worth.

However one team reportedly interested are Galatasaray. The Turkish giants are set to lose Wesley Sneijder this month, who is looking into a return to Serie A with Juventus, so would like another marquee signing.

However recent financials at the club are not great, so the signature of Adebayor would make little sense. The striker is believed to want around £100,000-a-week, a fee Gala would not want to pay.

However, their vice president Abdurrahim Albayrak believes that signing someone like Adebayor is just what the club needs to boost their current financial situation.

He has told the press in Turkey that the signature of Adebayor would put bums in seats, shirts on backs and, consequently, money in the coffers:

"With us getting star players our fans, they will fill the stadium, we sell tens of thousands of jerseys. Power train both our strengths, we will be champions."

Adebayor would reportedly be open to a move to Turkey, as his time in England looks to finally be coming to an end.
