Besiktas a step closer to signing Tottenham striker Adebayor
Beşiktaş are a step closer to signing Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor according to Turkish newspaper Fanatik.
Adebayor has failed to attract interest from elsewhere and the Black Eagles are reported to have made progress over the 29-year-old striker's wage demands.
Spurs want €8 million Adeybayor according to player agent Ahmet Düdük.
Eagles president Fikret Orman once against confirmed interest in Adebayor but stressed that the main transfer priority is signing an additional defender.
"We are interested in Adebayor however, our priority is to sign more defensive players right now," Orman said.
Adebayor would become the ninth foreign player to join the current Beşiktaş squad.
The Eagles are facing pressure from the Turkish Football Federation (TFF) to meet new guidelines restricting every club in the league to a maximum of 10 non-Turkish players.
Spurs transfer listed Adebayor after a poor season - the Togolese international only scored five Premier League goals in 25 appearances.
Adebayor joined Tottenham on a €6.4 million transfer from Manchester City last season and still has two-years left on his contract.
