Manager Harry Redknapp has given the clearest indication yet that he wants to pursue a deal for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor but it could be a loan arrangement in the first instance.
Many Spurs fans are desperate for the club to make some changes in our striking options for next season and this will be seen as good news for most of them.
Speaking to Sky, Harry said: “The chairman has been speaking about it, I am not sure if it will happen. He is a name that has certainly been mentioned, certainly.
“I spoke to the chairman about loaning the player and if we could work out a deal for him, I would like to bring him to the club.”
Adebayor scored 8 times in 22 games for Real Madrid last season including a hat-trick on the last day of the season. While a loan deal may not help out on a long term basis, could this be Harry’s best option as he seeks to address the issue of his misfiring strike force?
