Tottenham reveal interest in Emmanuel Adebayor
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has revealed an interest in signing Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
The 27-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with Real Madrid after falling out of favour with City boss Roberto Mancini.
Adebayor is expected to be a peripheral figure if he remains at the Etihad Stadium and looks set for a move away this summer.
The former Arsenal man has talked up a return to the Bernabeu, but has also been linked with a move back to north London and Tottenham.
Redknapp is keen to bring in new blood and has admitted the Togo forward is on his radar.
"He is a name that was mentioned and I spoke to the chairman about the player, about the possibility of loaning him, but whether they [City] would loan him I don't know," Redknapp told reporters in South Africa.
"If they would loan him he would be of interest. He is a quality player. We will wait and see."
