Two seasons ago, Emmanuel Adebayor caused a major ripple when he made the move from the Emirates Stadium to Manchester City, with the Togolese striker then making the headlines for scoring against his former club before running the full length of the pitch to celebrate in front of the Arsenal supporters.
It now appears that Adebayor might be about to give the Arsenal fans an extra reason to dislike him, with Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp admitting that he is interested in landing the signature of a player that has fallen out of favour at City despite rumours that Carlos Tevez will be leaving this summer.
Redknapp said: “The chairman [Daniel Levy] has been speaking about it. I am not sure if it will happen. He is a name that has been mentioned, certainly. I spoke to the chairman about loaning the player and if we could work out a deal for him, I would like to bring him to the club.”
Adebayor spent the second half of last season on loan at Real Madrid and City might prefer to sell or loan him to a club outside of the Premier League in the same way that Craig Bellamy was not allowed to leave for White Hart Lane twelve months ago.
