Monaco already have one former Spurs striker in their ranks but reports from today’s Daily Mail suggest that the big spending French club are looking to bring in Emmanuel Adebayor alongside Dimitar Berbatov ahead of the next campaign.
Ade spent three years at Monaco from 2003 but left to join Arsenal after a modest return of around one goal in every four matches but is was from that point that he developed into more of a striking threat. After top scoring for Spurs with 14 in 25 games at the end of 2013-14, the Mail claims that owner Dmitry Rybololev has identified the Togolese as his number one target as the club look to offer a stronger challenge to PSG next season.
The obvious problem with this story is that neither club has a manager right now. Monaco parted company with Claudio Ranieri earlier in the week while the report goes on to claim that Spurs are waiting on Carlo Ancelotti before making a formal approach to Mauricio Pochettino.
Once things are settled on both sides, Tottenham will make a decision on Adebayor’s future: Should he be retained or is now the time to sell?
