Rumour: Monaco in bid to re-sign Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor
Ligue 1 side Monaco are interested in bringing Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor to the south of France this summer as they bid to bolster their squad, according to the Daily Star.
Adebayor was Tottenham’s top scorer in the Premier League last season, despite missing the first half of the season due to being left out of the squad by Andre Villas-Boas.
However, Tim Sherwood brought him back into the squad and he repaid the faith by scoring 11 goals in the league, four more than any other player at the club.
Monaco co-owner Dmitry Rybolovlev is a fan of Adebayor and wants to bring the 30-year-old striker back to the Stade Louis II. Adebayor spent three years at the club before joining Arsenal in 2006.
The much travelled striker scored 18 goals in 78 appearances for the French side and could return over the summer transfer window.
Spurs are apparently wanting to keep Adebayor and build the team around him as last summer’s failure, Roberto Soldado, looks set to leave the club.
It could even come down to a case of Spurs not letting Adebayor go, allowing Monaco to change their tact and target Soldado instead.
