Tottenham star wanted by French giants

Tottenham could be set for a summer battle to keep Emmanuel Adebayor at the club, with reports from The Mirror indicating that Monaco are interested in the striker.

The Togolese hit-man endured an up and down season at White Hart Lane last time around, with Tim Sherwood having welcomed him back into the first-team squad over the winter after his exile under former chief Andre Villas-Boas.

But with the former now gone, Adebayor’s future is once again uncertain, which has alerted Monaco.

The mega rich Ligue 1 side recently booked a spot in the Champions League in their first season back in the French top tier, and are rumoured to be willing to spend big – as they did last summer – to go from strength to strength.

£50m 2013 signing Radamel Falcao may be sold after just one season on the Mediterranean coast, and Adebayor is seen as an ideal addition – regardless of the Colombian’s future.

The 30-year-old starred for Monaco prior to joining Arsenal in 2006, netting 19 goals in two and a half years as an emerging forward.

Although he has expressed a desire to stay with Spurs, the nouveau riche outfit will be able to offer him a lucrative and tax-free salary to relocate, as well as genuine hopes of challenging for silverware.
