It’s become clear in the last 24 hours that Turkish club Besiktas have made an enquiry to Spurs over the possible signing of striker Emmanuel Adebayor. It’s also apparent that Ade’s new suitors have been knocked back to some extent by the financial demands involved.
“It is certainly true that we are looking at the idea of a transfer. We have made a serious bid for Adebayor,” said Besiktas Director Ahmet Piper.
“That, in turn, has given us a figure for the player, which is slightly above the amount that we imagined.
“However, making a signing as big as this immediately is nothing but a dream.
“Negotiations always take a long time. I hope that we will get a chance to have a meeting soon.”
Some of today’s reports also claim that Ade is looking to see out the remaining three years of his contract but should Spurs look to cash in or is there a need to offload after last season’s mixed set of displays?
