There could be a three way swap between the clubs, with transfer flop Soldado also keen on moving to Atletico.

One of the clubs that have been closely monitoring Adebayor is French giants Monaco, where the Togo international spent three years before joining Arsenal back in 2006.

Adebayor was transfer listed by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy last summer, but did not receive any offers due to his large £170,000-a-week wages.

Former Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas was also not a fan of the 30-year-old, who disagreed with his tactics.

However after his sacking, Tim Sherwood reinstated Adebayor as the club’s first choice striker, in which he replied with an impressive 14 goals.
