Tottenham ready to sell big money flop

Tottenham are considering offloading Emmanuel Adebayor in January after Togo failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

The Spurs striker’s home country won’t be involved in the 2015 competition after slipping out of the qualifying faze, which means that the 30-year-old will be open for selection domestically.

Although this means he’ll be available for Mauricio Pochettino, the Lilywhites’ board are believed to be willing to use the situation to tempt in winter buyers, with the former Arsenal star’s performances and comments aimed at fans having been disappointing.

Adebayor currently earns £100,000-per-week at White Hart Lane, which could be a stumbling block for interested parties.

Sides from Turkey and the Middle East are rumoured to be looking at the experienced forward, yet should he demand a pay rise to move a deal could be hard to agree.

Adebayor has been heavily criticised by sections of Spurs’ support since he joined the club on a permanent deal, with his perceived lack of effort on the field a source of frustration.
