Former Tottenham and Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor is looking like a major doubt for the African Cup of Nations 2017.
He was expected to be part of the Togo national team at this major tournament. However, his failure to find a club since leaving Crystal Palace is threatening to disrupt the plans of the Togo national team.

However, he made only seven league appearances for the London outfit and scored one goal. His lack of interest in the game was being apparent and the club decided to let him leave on a free transfer by not extending his contract.

On the other hand, Chamakh has an injury-plagued season. He has only managed to score 10 goals in 66 appearances since joining from Arsenal three years ago.
