Serie A strugglers Torino have made contact with Tottenham over the signing of Emmanuel Adebayor, according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato.

The Togolese striker has fallen out of favour at White Hart Lane, and hasn't featured for Mauricio Pochettino's side since their 2-1 home defeat to Stoke on the 9th November.


Torino sporting director Gianluca Petrachi has made contact with Adebayor's representatives, and Spurs are reportedly willing to allow the former Arsenal man to leave the club, given the explosive form of Harry Kane.

il Toro have struggled for goals this season, with first choice forwards Amauri and Fabio Quagliarella weighing in with just four goals combined, and Torino's management reportedly see Adebayor as man to improve the side's paltry return of just 12 goals in 16 Serie A games.


The move could hit a stumbling block over the wage demands of the former African Footballer of the Year, with Torino purportedly unable to pay his £80,000 a week salary.

Elsewhere, the forward has been inked with a return to Spain, where he previously enjoyed a short loan period with Real Madrid, with both Valladolid and Villarreal expressing an interest in the Togo international.
