Emmanuel Adebayor has admitted that he would be welcome to a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Togolese international, who scored twice to help current side Real Madrid knock Spurs out of the Champions League last month, would welcome the chance to join up with Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane despite claims of racist chanting during the quarter final enocunter at the Bernabeu. 

Talking to Sky Sports News, Adebayor said “I heard about the chants and I felt so bad because before joining Real Madrid, my first choice was Tottenham.

“When I heard the songs I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t take it in a bad way at all but it was bad because people today have to realise that we are footballers. Today we play for this club and the next day we might end up playing for them.

“I would go there and sign for them. Maybe those fans were furious because I was scoring against them. Maybe they were thinking like that because Adebayor was taking them out of the Champions League and ending their dream of getting to the final.”

Any move to White Hart Lane would be likely to cause controvesy due to Adebayor’s stint with North London rivals Arsenal but with William Gallas making the switch across the great divide last summer, Redknapp wouldn’t be detered from making a move following the success of the Frenchman in the heart of the Spurs defence.

Adebayor has made a total of 33 appearances for both Real Madrid and Manchester City this season scoring 10 goals in the process

Vedat Muriqi scouted by Manchester United during England clash

The Daily Star (h/t Sun) claims that Manchester United have joined the race for Kosovo international Vedat Muriqi.

The 25-year-old put up an impressive showing against England during a recent Euro 2020 qualifier, and the report claims that Manchester United and Tottenham scouted the forward in the game.

Muriqi has been impressive in the Turkish league over the past 18 months and has done a great job for his new club Fenerbahce.

The Kosovo international already has two goals from three games for his new club and has also attracted the attention of Serie A giants Napoli, according to the report.

United could move for the striker in the winter window as they lack options after the departures of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku (h/t Sun).

An option that Tottenham need

Tottenham are also in need of signing some quality cover for Harry Kane. We didn’t sign anyone to replace Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen as the pair left during the summer window.

Kane has had his injury problems in recent seasons, and we need to sign someone who can provide us with a different option in the final third. Muriqi is great in the air and would be a quality target man to have in the team.

It will be interesting to see if we move for the Kosovo star in the winter window or wait until the end of the season before signing another forward.

Tottenham certain this star will play for Real Madrid as 27-year-old waits for call

Christian Eriksen waiting for call from Real Madrid over transfer

Marca claims that Christian Eriksen is still waiting for a call from Real Madrid after a summer move failed.

The Dane is out of a contract at the end of the season and has rejected every offer put on the table by Daniel Levy (h/t Marca).

Real have made contact with Tottenham in the past but no official bid for Eriksen was submitted, according to the report.

The Dane has been one of our most impressive players this season and has featured in all five Premier League games so far.

Eriksen’s reps making calls

Tottenham had offered Eriksen to Madrid in the summer but Zinedine Zidane wanted to sign Paul Pogba and neither deal happened (h/t Marca).

However, the Dane’s representatives have been making calls to several clubs in Europe, including the La Liga giants, and Eriksen is free to negotiate with foreign clubs in January, according to the report.

Tottenham, for their part, are certain that Eriksen will end up playing for Real Madrid next season (h/t Marca).

The 27-year-old has been one of our best signings in the Premier League era but him leaving on a free would be a bad move financially for Spurs.

Selling him in January could get us a decent sum but with six months left on his deal, it would make more financial sense to land him on a free at the end of the campaign.

Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid interested in Troy Parrott

Troy Parrott had a great international break as he scored three goals in two games for the U21 Irish team.

The 17-year-old Tottenham star is the next big thing coming through the system and impressed for the senior side during our pre-season.

The striker could provide back-up to Harry Kane later in the season, but several clubs are interested in the 17-year-old.

Calciomercato (h/t Daily Mail) claims that Juventus have entered the race to sign the Irish striker. The report adds that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are also keen on landing the forward.

Tottenham have a star on their hands

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that many clubs are interested in the 17-year-old striker. Spurs have seen several quality youngsters come through the ranks and Parrott could turn out to be the next Harry Kane.

Mauricio Pochettino has a history of working well with young talents, and it will be interesting to see how he works with Parrott.

The Argentine also needs to be careful to not rush Parrott into the first-team and then see the youngster trail off.

Marcus Edwards is an example of a highly-rated player never fulfilling his potential, and the youngster was allowed to leave this summer after failing at Tottenham.

Selling Parrott cannot be an option for Tottenham given his quality, and we have to reject any offers that may come for the Irishman.

Tottenham’s head scout impressed by Vedat Muriqi after performance against England

Turkish outlet Fanatik (h/t Daily Mail) claims that Tottenham’s head scout was left impressed after Vedat Muriqi’s performance against England.

The Kosovo striker scored in the 5-3 loss for his team in a Euro 2020 qualifier but was one of the most impressive players on the pitch.

The Fenerbahce forward made an impression on Steve Hitchen, and the report claims that Spurs will continue monitoring the 25-year-old.

Pochettino could search for striker later in the season

Tottenham allowed a couple of first-team strikers to leave this season, and they don’t have recognised cover for Harry Kane.

Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura can play as the striker, but the pair have also done well in other positions for the team.

The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino could be in the market for a striker should Tottenham reach the latter stages of the Champions League.

Spurs reached the final in the previous season, but we still need someone who can provide competition to Kane for a starting spot in the team.

Muriqi has done well in Turkey and has scored 12 goals in his last 13 appearances in the league.

The Kosovo forward wouldn’t start too many games for us, but he would provide us with another option, in case things don’t go well for the team.
