Emmanuel Adebayor
Adebayor scored just five league goals last season.

Tottenham Hotspur are braced for a bid for Emmanuel Adebayor in the January transfer window after Besiktas vice-president Ahmet Nur Cebi stated the Turkish giants will launch a New Year bid for the Togolese striker.

Adebayor hasn't been involved in any Spurs matchday squad this season with summer signing Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe first choice in attack.

The ex-Manchester City striker failed to forced a move away from White Hart Lane in the summer following the addition of Soldado but the 29 year old is expected to be handed a second chance to move away from Tottenham

"We were interested in Adebayor in August," he told Besiktas TV. "The club will target Adebayor again in January, but it's difficult to sign such marketable players."

Adebayor secured a permanent move to Tottenham from City last summer following a successful loan spell with the club, however he netted just five goals in 25 league appearances as the onus fell on Gareth Bale to inspire Spurs' assault on the top four.

The sale of Bale sparked the addition of seven new players in the summer, including Soldado from Valencia for a then club record fee and the Spanish international has wasted little time adapting to his new surroundings, scoring six goals including the winner against Hull City.

Tottenham produced an uncertain display in defeating Hull to return to the top four and Soldado is impressed with his side's recent form.

"We're doing well at the moment," the 28 year old said.

"We had to keep up with the teams who won on Saturday and Chelsea won as well, so we had to keep up with them.

"Apart from the blip against West Ham, I think we've done very well at the back recently to not have any goals scored against us and I think we've done well, we've won our game and we're moving forward."
