Report: West Ham renew interest in Emmanuel Adebayor after January failure

Adebayor 2014

West Ham are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor again.

According to The Telegraph, West Ham United have made another enquiry for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor having failed with a January move.

The 31-year-old has been a bit-part figure under Mauricio Pochettino this season, and has played just 131 minutes of football since the start of 2015.

The expectation is now that Adebayor will leave White Hart Lane this summer in search of first team football - and he may not have to move far to get it.

The Telegraph report that, despite not having a manager since parting company with Sam Allardyce just over a week ago, West Ham are once again interested in signing the Togolese hitman.

It was well document that, shortly after the January transfer window, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy cancelled a deal to send Adebayor on loan to West Ham, as reported by the BBC.

Yet having barely played since the collapse of that deal, Tottenham may now be more willing to deal with West Ham, who have an interest in the former Arsenal star once again, according to The Telegraph.

With Andy Carroll injured, West Ham will need to find a striker to supplement Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia, and Adebayor could give the Hammers another option in attack - if they can convince Tottenham to deal with them this time around.
