I’m sure most of you have heard the news that Manchester City are in talks with Arsenal about the possibility of signing Emmanuel Adebayor.
The Togolese striker has been linked with a move to AC Milan in recent weeks, however the Italian giants seem to have cooled their interest, leaving the door open for Mark Hughes to make a move.
Adebayor, 25, is likely to cost City as much as £25 million, which won’t be a problem. Arsene Wenger recently stated that Adebayor would still be an Arsenal player next season, however it now looks as though he may be wearing blue when the new season kicks off in August.
From reporting on Adebayor in the past, I get the impression Arsenal fans will be glad to see the back of him. There is no doubt that, on his day, Adebayor is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and Arsenal will miss him, however I think Wenger have someone up his sleeve to replace him.
Should the deal go through, I’m struggling to pick a front two for City. They have got far too many strikers, so I would be surprised if players like Felipe Caicedo were still at Eastlands next season.
