Stoke City considering Tottenham Hotspur strike star

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is considering the option of signing out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur star Emmanuel Adebayor ahead of the close of the January window, the Mirror reports.

The 30-year-old has made only nine starts this season and is currently being eyed by a number of clubs looking to acquire his services.

Hughes is trying to reinforce his strike force after summer signing Bojan Krkic suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury that has ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino is also open to the option of loaning Adebayor out, but all the interested parties will need to meet his £100,000-a-week wages, a factor that could be halting any potential deals.

The Togo international had been previously contacted by Paris Saint-Germain, but the move was called off after Spurs failed to reach an agreement with the Ligue 1 giants.

Harry Redknapp was also keen on luring him over to Queens Park Rangers, but after talks, it is thought the struggling Premier League side were unable to meet his wage demands.
