Flop Spurs pair wanted in Italy

Italian giants Roma have outlined Tottenham flops Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor as potential replacements for Mattia Destro, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

The Serie A side let their centre-forward – who was linked with Spurs recently – head to AC Milan on loan earlier this week, leaving them short of cover ‘up top’.

As a result, a move for a replacement before the transfer window closes is an option, and both Soldado and Adebayor are thought to be on their hit-list.

Their first choice is, however, Shakhtar Donetsk’s Luiz Adriano, yet his salary demands are thought to be a little high.

If Roma cannot secure the Brazilian, then the Tottenham pair will be in their crosshairs, with loan deals the most likely option.

It’s understood that the Rome side will look to secure one, not both, of the players, with Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to make Harry Kane his first choice striker hinting that the pair have fallen down his pecking order.

Adebayor is also wanted by QPR and West Brom.
