Spurs seem stuck with Adebayor due to his astronomic wage demands.
Tottenham are trying desperately to sell Emmanuel Adebayor, but no clubs are willing to meet his £100,000 per week wage demands, reports The Mirror.
Spurs thought they had a £6m deal agreed with Besiktas, but the move has failed to materialise because the Turkish side refused to pay him such a high salary.
The 29-year-old Togolese striker has taken regular criticism for his poor work rate from the club’s fans, confounded by his poor goal return last season. Spurs decided to make his loan move from Manchester City permanent after scoring 18 goals in the 2011/12 season. His form earned him a large contract with the north-Londoners, but he has not performed to the levels expected of him since.
Spurs are keen to move Adebyaor along and replace him with talented Belgian forward Christian Benteke.
Selling Adebayor would free up wages, transfer funds and space in the squad, which would help a£25m deal for Benteke to be completed. Aston Villa said they will not budge from their large valuation of the player who scored 19 league goals last year, but handed in a transfer request earlier this week.
Signing Benteke would take summer spending at White Harte Lane well over £40m, after Paulinho’s £17m arrival from Corinthians. Spurs fans would be nervous that the player is yet to justify such a large fee, having only played one season in the Premier League.
