The Turkish side has submitted a bid for Adebayor.
Despite unwilling to give up a big money contract at Tottenham Hotspur, Besiktas have submitted a bid to try and land striker Emmanuel Adebayor in what the Turks call a ‘dream signing.’
Adebayor joined Spurs last summer in a £5.5m transfer following a successful previous 12 months on-loan at White Hart Lane.
The 29-year-old signed a lucrative four-year deal with the north London side but just a year later is being linked with a move away from the club.
However, the Togo forward is thought not to want to give up his hefty wages and therefore any switch to Besiktas would have to compete with that salary.
Yet the Turkish team have confirmed they have entered a bid, proving that they are serious about landing Adebayor and free up Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas to make moves for other attacking targets.
“It is certainly true that we are looking at Adebayor,” Besiktas sporting director Ahmet Piper was quoted in the Metro.
“We have made a serious bid, and that in turn has given us an idea of what Tottenham want for the player.
“Making a big signing like this would be a dream.”
The offer that has been made is believed to be in the region of £3m, whilst Tottenham are keen to receive closer to the £5.5m the club paid Manchester City for the forward.
However, with AVB keen on bringing in new attackers such as Roberto Soldado, David Villa and Christian Benteke, Spurs may well cut their losses and offload a striker who has scored just eight goals in the last year.
