Emmanuel Adebayor: Target for Besiktas

Adebayor's future at Tottenham has been the subject of intense speculation all summer with Spurs thought to be in the market for striking reinforcements.

Besiktas have confirmed their interest in Adebayor, but fear a ban from European competition will scupper their chances of landing the former Arsenal and Manchester City man.

Besiktas face a ban from the 2013-14 Europa League for alleged involvement in match fixing, but they have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and are confident of getting the decision overturned.

If the club are successful in their appeal Besiktas president, Fikret Orman, has revealed he is ready to fly to London to tie up a deal for Adebayor.

"We are interested in Adebayor, the transfer could still go ahead," Orman is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.

"The deal breaker for Adebayor was whether we would play in Europe this season, as soon as we are cleared I will travel to London and complete the deal."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
