Report: Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Tottenham outcast Emmanuel Adebayor on loan

The big-spending Ligue 1 champions are keen on bringing in the former Arsenal and Manchester City man.

It is being reported by Sky Sports News that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in snapping up Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor on a loan until the end of the season.

Sky Sports are reporting via their Transfer Centre that:

"Paris St Germain are interested in taking Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor on loan, according to Sky sources.

"It is understood that discussions have taken place with Spurs but that Stoke and QPR are also interested in a deal."

The news has also been reported by one of their chief football reporters Bryan Swanson, who Tweeted:

Since then The Express have also ran the story, claiming he is being eyed up as a replacement for Ezequiel Lavezzi, who they say PSG are keen to get rid of.

Adebayor joined Tottenham on a permanent deal in 2012 after a successful loan spell from Manchester City in the 2011-12 season.

After starting his career at White Hart Lane with aplomb things have recently been tougher for the 30-year-old. Off the field problems and the emergence of Harry Kane have reduced Adebayor to just 11 Premier League appearances this season, where he has found the net on just two occasions.

Adebayor's current deal with Tottenham does not expire until the end of next season and this loan move could finally be his way out of the club, as well as giving him a chance to win some silverware with the big spending Parisians this season.
