Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly closing in on former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor in a loan deal.
The Togolese international has been heavily linked with a move to White Hart Lane this summer, and despite competition from Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, Spurs appear set to get their man.
Harry Redknapp has been keen to bolster the attacking ranks at the club during the transfer window, with Leandro Damiao and Diego Forlan also linked, but Adebayor now appears to be the man returning to north London, although in a different colour shirt, with The Evening Standard claiming the Manchester City striker is undergoing a medical.
"He is a good player, a real talent. He has a big point to prove and has to get back to the form he showed at Arsenal. He showed it when he was on loan at Real Madrid last season against us in the Champions League," said the Spurs boss.
"If he comes here and gets goals, the fans will love him. If he's useless, they'll slaughter him. There have been Arsenal managers who have managed Tottenham Hotspur.
"Pat Jennings played for both clubs. It depends how the player does. William Gallas came from Arsenal and he did great for us last season."
Whilst Roberto Mancini has been happy to let another of his forwards leave, Redknapp is unwilling to do more business with regards to forwards leaving Spurs in the coming week, despite reports to the contrary.
"No strikers are going out. Robbie Keane has gone [to La Galaxy] and we're okay now. I see no movement," the Tottenham Hotspur chief continued.
I hear a lot about Peter Crouch going but I love him. He is a good player. I know nothing about him leaving and it is not something I want to happen."
