Tottenham are urging AS Monaco to take Emmanuel Adebayor off their hands.

The Daily Star Sunday says Spurs are hoping Monaco make a £5million move for Adebayor.

The ex-Monaco, Arsenal and Manchester City striker is available after a disappointing season.

And Monaco, where he made his name before joining Arsenal, are understood to be considering re-signing him.

They are one of Europe's wealthiest clubs and could easily afford the Togo target man's £100,000-a-week wages.
