La Liga clubs eyeing move for Tottenham star

Tottenham Hotspur’s out-of-favour centre-forward Emmanuel Adebayor is being chased by La Liga clubs Celta Vigo and Atletico Madrid.

The Togolese forward has found chances hard to come by since Andre Villas-Boas was appointed manager at White Hart Lane and this has left his future at Sours in serious doubt, according to talkSPORT.

Adebayor’s injury problems at the beginning of the season meant fellow striker Jermain Defoe was Villas-Boas’ only experienced option in the central striker role.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City man has struggled to get back into the team since recovering and the manager’s system using only one striker has meant increased compeititon.

The report suggests Celta Vigo have targeted Adebayor as a possible remedy to their scoring problems, having only found the net only 11 times in ten games.

However, Atletico’s interest may be connected to the continuing speculation surrounding the future of Radamel Falcao, with Spurs’ Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City tipped for possible bids.

Adebayor was on loan at White Hart Lane last season from City and enjoyed huge success, leading to the move being made permanent.

However, Harry Redknapp’s preference for the Togo international is not shared by Villas-Boas and Adebayor could be forced to find another club.
