Turkish giants Besiktas will try to secure a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Togolese striker Emmanuel Adebayor once the transfer window opens again in January, it has been revealed.
The Turkish club tried their best to lure the former Arsenal and Manchester City striker to the club this summer as well, but a breakdown in negotiations with the club along with the player’s unwillingness to move to Turkey made a deal impossible.
It was revealed that the striker was waiting for other offers to come his way before making a decision but with a lack of clubs keen to sign him, that waiting game backfired on him. He has since been reduced to a bit time player at the club following the arrival of Spanish striker Roberto Soldado and the presence of Jermain Defoe and it is this lack of playing time that might just prompt Emmanuel Adebayor to reconsider his options once again.
A source from the club also confirmed that they were interested in signing the striker in August and mentioned that they will try to sign him once again in January but also admitted that it is difficult for a club like them to sign such a marketable player. The source also mentioned that they are also looking at the prospect of signing legendary Brazilian forward Ronaldinho who currently plays for Atletico Mineiro back in his homeland.
But that signing will prove to be a huge gamble considering the player’s histrionics off the field and the money they will need to sign him and that leaves Emmanuel Adebayor as the most likely option that they have. And with star names such as Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder already plying their trade in Turkey, Adebayor might just consider swapping London for Istanbul come the January transfer window as well.
