Report: Crystal Palace interested in Tottenham Hotspur’s Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor is reportedly on the radar of Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Emmanuel Adebayor from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.

The British tabloid claims that Palace manager Alan Pardew wants the striker “to lead his attack” next season.

However, it has been reported that Adebayor “is ready to sit on his £100,000-a-week wages so a deal must be struck over his salary if he is loaned for the final year of his contract.”

The 31-year-old is currently the third-choice striker at Tottenham after England international Harry Kane and former Valencia star Roberto Soldado.

There is little to suggest that the former Arsenal star will play a major role in Spurs’ 2015-16 campaign, and it would be best for him to move to a club which can offer him regular first-team football.

The former Manchester City striker could feature in only 13 Premier League matches in the recently concluded 2014-15 season, scoring two goals and creating 12 chances in the process.

If Palace are willing to sign him and make him a regular in the starting line-up, then Adebayor should move to the Eagles.
