Tottenham want to sign on-loan Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Daily Mail says Tottenham have opened talks with Manchester City over a permanent move for loan striker Adebayor.

The North Londoners’ would look to pay in the region of £8million for Adebayor, who cost City £25million in 2009.

The 27-year-old, who has scored nine goals for Spurs, earns £170,000-per-week on his Manchester City contract.

Spurs pay around 50 per cent of his City salary, while the Etihad Stadium club pick up the rest of the bill.

And Adebayor would be required to take a hefty pay-cut to secure a permanent move to White Hart Lane.

The club’s current wage ceiling is set at around £75,000-per-week, however Tottenham would smash through that to land Adebayor.
