Chelsea ready to join battle for Arsenal's Adebayor

Chelsea are being linked with a shock bid for Arsenal's unsettled striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are monitoring events at Arsenal, with Adebayor unhappy over the club's refusal to meet his demands for a pay rise to £120,000-a-week and expressing a desire to join Barcelona or AC Milan.

That is not the kind of money that worries Chelsea and he is on a list of targets should Luiz Felipe Scolari suddenly need a replacement for Didier Drogba.
