Report: Swansea City not interested in Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor

The Tottenham striker is surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane and seems certain to move, with Aston Villa interested.

Swansea City have rubbished reports linking them with a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanel Adebayor, the South Wales Evening Post reports.

Various reports have indicated that Adebayor is likely to leave White Hart Lane this summer, with the Daily Mail yesterday reporting that Aston Villa are closing in on a deal for the forward. 

It looks like Villa are going to take Adebayor on loan for a season with an option to make the move permanent at the end of the initial loan deal, and have managed to find a breakthrough when it comes to paying his £100,000 per week wages, the Mail reported.

Instead, the South Wales Evening Post insists that Swansea boss Garry Monk sees a big role for Bafetimibi Gomis as his main striker going into the new season, as the Frenchman led the line for the second half of last season when Wilfried Bony was sold to Manchester City. 

Gomis has been attracting interest from elsewhere himself according to the report, but Monk is keen to keep hold of the forward as he feels he wouldn't be able to find an adequate replacement between now and when the season kicks of in 11 days time. 

Adebayor looks as though he will be a big investment for whoever takes him on, and something of a gamble. He may be a talented player, but at several clubs his attitude seems to have been questioned, and all to often some managers appear to have run out of patience with him.
