Emmanuel Adebayor could be given a new lease of life with confirmed interest from Tottenham Hotspurs.
The ex Arsenal man is currently training with the reserve team after being left out of Man City’s traveling party to the US.
The Togoloese have not hidden his desire to leave the Premiership ‘cash kings’ with his preferred destination being Real Madrid where he spent the latter half of last campaign on loan.
However White Hart Lane boss, on a pre-season tour in South Africa, said: ‘The chairman, Daniel Levy, has been speaking about it, I am not sure if it will happen. He is a name that has certainly been mentioned.
‘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 risked a hefty fine from his current employers last week when he refused to train with the youth team after being left out of the first-team squad for pre-season.
