Spurs locked in talks for City striker - reports

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Emanuel Adebayor is a prime target for the club, as his striker quest continues.

After selling Robbie Keane to LA Galaxy, Spurs now have just three strikers available, including England internationals Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch, so another out and out forward is high on Redknapp’s priorities.

The home fixture against Everton has been postponed due to riots in the capital and Tottenham’s bosses are using the breathing room to push on with talks with Manchester City for Adebayor.

Redknapp said: "The chairman is talking to Man City about the player but where they (the negotiations) are at, I genuinely don't know."


The 27-year-old Togolese striker reportedly demands a weekly £170,000 wage, so even if the club agree a deal with City, personal terms will be a significant hurdle to jump.

Daniel Levy also has the future of midfielder Luka Modric on his mind, as Chelsea throw in player plus cash offers for the Croatian, while Peter Crouch has also been linked with other clubs this summer.
