Beşiktaş have made an offer for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor according to board member Ahmet Kavalcı.

"We are definitely interested in him Adebayor and have made an offer," Kavalcı said.

"Adebayor currently wants more than what he were hoping however, talks are ongoing however, we hope to complete the transfer as soon as possible."

The Black Eagles face a striker shortage - Mustafa Pektemek and Hugo Almeida are the only first choice strikers currently available at the club.

Tottenham transfer listed Adebayor after a poor season - the Togolese international only scored five Premier League goals in 25 appearances.

Beşiktaş are willing to offer €5 million for the Togolese international and would be able to match his wage demands through the use of sponsors and the low tax rates for footballers in Turkey.

Footballers playing in the Turkish Süper Lig pay just 15 percent in income tax.

Adebayor joined Tottenham for €6.4 million from Manchester City last season and still has two-years left on his contract.

The Black Eagles finished the 2012-13 Turkish Süper Lig in third position however, will not be participating in the Europa League next season after getting a one-year European competition ban from UEFA.
