Adebayor shocks Arsenal with £80,000-a-week contract demands

The Daily Mail says Adebayor has demanded £80,000 a week to stay at the club.

The 24-year-old striker signed a new contract last summer worth a weekly £35,000, but he has told Arsene Wenger he wants to be paid in line with the top players in the Barclays Premier League.

Adebayor, after suffering an initial knock back, is expected to make more noises following Sunday's final game of the season at Sunderland.

His agent Stephane Courbis said: "Now is not the time to talk about his contract. We'll wait until next week."
