Tottenham are eager to sell striker Emmanuel Adebayor in January in order to free up funds to move for another striker, according to the London Evening Standard.

29-year-old Adebayor joined Spurs from Premier League rivals Manchester City on a permanent basis in August 2012 after impressing on a season-long deal during the previous campaign but appears to have fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane.

The Togo international, who previously starred for fierce rivals Arsenal, is yet to play a single minute of competitive football for Spurs so far this season and was also banished to train with the reserve side by manager Andre Villas-Boas earlier this summer following an extended period of compassionate leave.

Although Adebayor is now back training with the first-team squad, it appears he does not have a long-term future at the club. According to the Standard, Spurs are looking to offload the forward when the transfer window re-opens for business in January in order to allow them to focus on pursuing another striker.

Adebayor, who has won 57 senior international caps, was reportedly subject to interest from Turkish outfit Besiktas prior to the close of the summer window, yet the Standard suggest that he has a preference for a move to one of the bigger European leagues.
