Tottenham Hotspur are once again being linked with a move for Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Togolese striker, who spent the later stages of last season on loan at Real Madrid, has been told he can leave Eastlands this summer if a club can match the Citizens' £14 million valuation, according to the Daily Mirror.

However, Jose Mourinho has only come to the table with £8 million thus far, opening the door to Spurs if they wish to swoop for the former Arsenal striker.

A major stumbling block would be if Roberto Mancini is willing to sell to a top four rival in the Barclays Premier League, and Adebayor would need to take a sizable pay-cut were he to make the White Hart Lane move.

However, Harry Redknapp is a long-term admirer of the striker, and Adebayor has previously mentioned that he wouldn't be against a move to Tottenham Hotspur should the opportunity arise.

The link also comes less than a week after Redknapp urged Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to splash the cash this summer, and help bring three 'fantastic' players to the club in the summer window.

"I want Daniel to go out and get three fantastic players," the Spurs boss told the Daily Mirror.


"You can't say that just because we didn't make the Champions League, we're not going to improve next year."

With an impressive goalscoring record and experience at the highest level, Adebayor could fit the bill for Tottenham Hotspur, and with strikers Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko linked with an exit in the window, it's a position Redknapp is actively looking to strengthen.

Leandro Damiao, Didier Drogba and Pablo Osvaldo have all been linked with the north Londoners in recent weeks, and a move for at least one player in the position can be expected before the season kicks off again for Spurs in August.
