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

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.

Bradley Dack

Tottenham are interested in a deal for Bradley Dack of Blackburn Rovers, according to the Express.

The 24-year-old has expressed this season and has six goals and two assists in 10 Championship games. The midfielder is also on the radar of England boss Gareth Southgate, who watched the Englishman against Derby County, as per the report.

The midfielder, however, is happy at Blackburn for now. The 24-year-old was quoted by the Sun (h/t Express) as saying:

“I could have left Blackburn but I’m way happier now than the time I could have left Gillingham.

“It’s a massive a massive club, I love being here, everything is here to go to the next level.

“I had conversations with the manager and the club and they said they didn’t want me to leave.

“So I told them I’ll leave it with you, I want to stay, I won’t kick up a fuss.”

The youngster added that the club could still sell him if they accept the right offer, but added he wants to play at the top level with Rovers.

The 24-year-old joined Rovers from Gillingham at the start of the season for just £750,000 (h/t Express). Tottenham didn’t make any signings in the summer and it will be interesting if we dip into the market in the winter window.

Cengiz Under

Arsenal are leading the chase to sign AS Roma winger Cengiz Under, according to ForzaRoma (h/t Mirror).

The Turkish youngster joined the Italian side in 2017 and has been one of the most impressive players for the team.

The report claims that the Gunners are leading Tottenham and Bayern Munich for the 21-year-old’s signature. Under has a couple of goals and three assists from eight games this season and played for the Turkish national side during the international break.

The 21-year-old is valued at around £50m (h/t Mirror) and is one of the best youngsters in world football at the moment.

Although Tottenham didn’t bring in new faces in the summer, we can’t rule out transfers in the winter window.

Almost every team will be looking to add quality in the winter window and we should be no different. It will be interesting to see if we continue keeping tabs on the Turkish international as the season progresses.

Tottenham could do with someone of Under’s quality in the team, as he seems ready for Premier League football.

The 21-year-old could get even better under the watchful eye of Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine is one of the best managers in the world, and his record of getting the best out of youngsters could help us land some quality players in January.
