Tottenham Hotspur are apparently trying to offload Emmanuel Adebayor, who is on massive wages and no longer in serious contention to be first choice with Roberto Soldado joining the team. Unfortunately, he's on six figures a week, which makes him particularly hard to sell or loan out.
Here's what the Mail has to say:
The Bundesliga side are expected to sell Switzerland winger Tranquillo Barnetta to Eintracht Frankfurt, ahead of Germany's midday deadline, but are still unable to afford any fee for Adebayor, despite earmarking him as a prime candidate to solve their lack of firepower. They would like to take him on a season-long loan, but Tottenham are unlikely to be impressed by a request that they pay half his wages.
If Adebayor's not in Spurs' plans, paying £50k a week is better than paying £100k a week, but they're probably happy to keep him as a backup for another year if they can't find anyone to take him off their hands. Of course, Adebayor could always decide to sign for Schalke on greatly reduced wages, but there's not really any incentive for him to do so. Related: Manchester City ruins everything.
We haven't seen any rumors pop up about strikers Spurs are interested in, but with us apparently trying to offload Adebayor and everyone mid-table apparently hopeful that Jermain Defoe is for sale, I'm certainly wondering where those rumors are and if they're going to show up anytime soon.
