Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Premier League leaders Chelsea as a replacement for Didier Drogba.

Reports last month suggested Jose Mourinho was lining up the Togo international as a surprise signing in the summer transfer window, with Drogba set to be released at the end of the campaign.

Adebayor, formerly of Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid, has fallen out of favour at Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino and has played just once since January but the 30-year-old is keen to fight for his place in North London.

"Contrary to reports, I am very happy at Tottenham and will do everything to fight for my place," Adebayor wrote on Twitter. "I have a year to go on my contract and love playing in the EPL, best league in world!"

Despite starting the season as first choice under Pochettino, Adebayor has fallen behind top scorer Harry Kane in the pecking order at Tottenham scoring just two goals in all competitions.

Adebayor's form has wavered since moving to Spurs on loan for the 2011/12 season where he netted 18 times, but upon his permanent switch from City his form has subsided with 24 goals coming in the following two-and-a-half years.

The goalless draw with Burnley saw Tottenham fall seven points behind fourth place City in the race for qualification for next season's Champions League, with seven games remaining for them to breach the gap.

Chelsea meanwhile are already looking to next season where they are expected to begin as defending champions. Though Diego Costa and Loic Remy have led the line for much of the season, Mourinho is preparing to replace the experienced Drogba in the summer should the Ivorian leave the club.

West Ham United failed to sign Adebayor in the final hours of the January transfer window after Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy pulled the plug on the deal due to the pair's local rivalry.
