Reports suggest that the out-of-favour Spurs frontman, now 31 years of age, has been holding out for a move to Upton Park following his aborted switch back in January.
Having been told he is no longer part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at White Hart Lane, the Togo international is widely expected to leave the club this summer.
However, after stalling on a move to Aston Villa to reunite with Tim Sherwood – stating his desire to remain in the capital city, as revealed by HITC Sport – he has continued training with Spurs, although he is yet to feature in an official capacity this campaign.
Adebayor made 13 appearances for the Lilywhites last term, scoring two goals as he converted 13.3% of his total attempts. He finished the season having completed 47% of his take ons and 48% of his headed duels.
Amid West Ham’s ongoing striker crisis, which sees three of the club’s four main forwards sidelined ahead of Saturday’s trip to Anfield, Adebayor’s arrival would undoubtedly be a welcome relief for Irons fans.
The 31-year-old remains a clinical finisher on his day and regular football may help to bring the best out of the ex-Arsenal and Manchester City man once again.
