Besiktas confirm Adebayor interest

Besiktas director Ahmet Kavalc─▒ has claimed that the club have made an offer for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Emmanuel Adebayor did little to inspire confidence in his abilities last season
Emmanuel Adebayor scored 17 Premier League for Tottenham in the 2011-12 season.

Adebayor, 29, is believed to be surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane following an indifferent season which saw him score just five goals in 25 appearances following a £5 million move from Manchester City.

Kavalc─▒ is quoted as telling Turkish website Fanatik that Besiktas would be keen on signing the Togo international, although he believes a deal may still be some way off completion.

"It is certainly true that we are looking at the idea of a transfer,” he said. “We have made a serious bid for Adebayor.

"That, in turn, has given us a figure for the player, which is slightly above the amount that we imagined.

"However, making a signing as big as this immediately is nothing but a dream. Negotiations always take a long time. I hope that we will get a chance to have a meeting soon."
