Tottenham draw up four player shortlist to replace Emmanuel Adebayor

Next Story

Tottenham will reportedly look to get rid of Emmanuel Adebayor during the summer transfer window, regardless of where they finish in the league, and have identified four candidates capable of replacing the Togolese striker.

According to The Mirror, Adebayor has told the club that he will not be forced out of White Hart Lane, but Spurs remain intent on finding a buyer for the ex-Manchester City forward, just a year after he joined the club on a permanent basis.

Adebayor was left out of Andre Villas-Boas' matchday squad during Tottenham's 2-2 draw with Wigan, on Saturday, and the 29-year-old does not feature in the plans of his manager beyond the end of the current season.

Spurs, however, may struggle to find a suitor for the player, who will reportedly only leave if another club willing to match his wages of £100,000-a-week can be found.

Tottenham are reported to have their sights set on four possible replacements for Adebayor, with the club holding an interest in Leandro Damiao, Loic Remy, Christian Benteke and Eder.

The club have been linked with Damiao for some time, and may reportedly be rivalled by Napoli for the signature of the young Brazilian, with Edinson Cavani seemingly set to leave the Stadio San Paolo in the summer transfer window.

Of their reported targets, Spurs may have the best chance of capturing Remy before August's transfer deadline, with the relegation of Queens Park Rangers likely to prompt the sale of some of the club's most valuable assets.
