Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor could be set for a reunion with former boss Harry Redknapp at Queens Park Rangers, according to The Sun.
Adebayor to QPR?
The big target man has started all of Tottenham's league games this season but has only scored once, coincidentally in the 4-0 home win against Redknapp's QPR team. The ex-Arsenal striker's performances have been on the poor side under Mauricio Pochettino but the Togolese did put in a better performance in the weekend victory over Southampton.
However, the striker bought from Manchester City two years ago after a successful loan spell in North London turns 31 this February and could miss the January period due to the African Cup of Nations. His wages are reported to be around the £100,000-a-week mark, and given his indifferent attitude at times Pochettino and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy may decide better value for money can be found in the form of a replacement.
Pochettino likes his forward players to work hard to regain the ball, something that does not come naturally to Adebayor. Former Pochettino player and rumoured transfer target Jay Rodriguez is targeting a New Year return and could interest his old manager once more.
QPR have struggled this season, finding themselves bottom after seven games, and their five goals make them the second lowest scorers in the Premier League. Redknapp is known for buying players he has previously worked with, while Rangers may be willing to offer Adebayor similar wages as he gets at White Hart Lane.
Defoe move possible?
The report in question also links Redknapp with another move for ex-Spurs Jermain Defoe, and if the two strikers join the Hoops they would find fellow former Lilywhites Sandro, Steven Caulker, Adel Taarabt, Bobby Zamora and Niko Kranjčar amongst the playing ranks, as well as Kevin Bond, Glenn Hoddle and Les Ferdinand in the back room staff.
