Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sanction the sale of Emmanuel Adebayor this summer, and are willing to let the striker leave for as little as £5 million.

The London Evening Standard reports how the north London club are open to offers for the Togolese star as they look to get him off their expensive wage bill.

When Adebayor first moved to White Hart Lane from Manchester City in the summer of 2012 his £170,000-a-week wages were supplemented by the Etihad Stadium outfit for the first two years of his four-year deal.

Now that that time has elapsed, the 30-year-old's take-home is likely to be reduced to £80-90,000-a-week, but that hasn't deterred the player to see out the remainder of his Tottenham contract.

The recent appointment of Mauricio Pochettino has given everyone around the club renewed hope of a serious tilt towards Champions League qualification next season, and Adebayor wants to be a part of that challenge.

However, Daniel Levy is conscious of not having too many ageing players in the Tottenham squad that cannot be sold on for a profit, and so he's ready to consider bids of £5 million or more for Adebayor when the transfer window reopens this summer.

Levy will proceed with plans to sell the African marksman, irrespective of whether or not Pochettino sees the veteran striker as part of his first-team picture.
