Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor is capable of becoming a Premier League great.

In his column for The Sun, Wright opined: "On Sunday, it's the North London derby at White Hart Lane and you can bet Adebayor will have to take all sorts of stick from the away supporters.

"It's written in the stars that Adebayor will score. While half of Arsenal fans hate him, I reckon the other half would have him back tomorrow.

"I'd love to sit him down and have a serious chat. I’d ask: 'What do you want to be remembered for?'

"He can either be remembered as a terrific scorer of goals or a player who angered Arsenal fans with a goal celebration for Manchester City.

"Adebayor, still only 27, has a simple choice. He could go down as a sensational player rather than a very good one. He's capable of scoring more than 20 goals every season."
