One of the transfer talking points in relation to Spurs in recent months relates to the future of on loan striker Emmanuel Adebayor. The Togolese made an instant impact in his first game, scoring at Wolves and striking up a useful partnership with Jermain Defoe in attack.
Since then however, performances have been a little inconsistent but the Togolese gave us a reminder of his undoubted talent with a man of the match performance in the 5-0 win over Newcastle – scoring one and assisting with the other four strikes on the night.
Ade’s wages were always going to be an issue however and it never seemed likely that Spurs were going to match his current deal which is believed to be in the region of £170,000 a week. However, with Harry Redknapp insistent that the club were more than keen to keep the player, a reported offer of £100,000 a week plus a £4 million signing on fee was mooted.
Rumours today seem to suggest that Adebayor will reject such a deal, leaving Spurs to look at cheaper options such as Loic Remy or Giuseppe Rossi.
