Tottenham set to cash-in to land striker

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor and Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez

Tottenham are seeking to bolster their striking options this January, with Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez a possible target, The Independent reports.

Despite having acquired Roberto Soldado this summer, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas is said to be keen to add to his forward line, in a move that could spell the end of Emmanuel Adebayor’s stay at White Hart Lane.

The Togolese striker, who is the club’s highest earner, has failed to make an impact since joining permanently from Manchester City in 2012.

Now, having fallen behind both Soldado and Jermain Defoe in the pecking-order, and with a move for Hernandez seemingly on the cards, it is thought the club will seek to offload the former Arsenal man.

One possible destination could be Besiktas, who currently sit second in the Turkish Super Lig, a move that would fit Adebayor’s preference to remain in Europe.

Any transfer, however, may depend on Spurs’ ability to bring in players, with Adebayor being one of just three strikers with recognised Premier League experience.

Target Hernandez meanwhile, has reiterated his desire to break into United’s first team but has accepted that he may have to move elsewhere to get a regular starting berth.
