Report: West Brom eyeing shock move for veteran striker Emmanuel Adebayor
West Brom are reportedly considering a shock move for Emmanuel Adebayor if Slaven Bilic can’t land a proven goalscorer.
The Sun have claimed the Baggies could turn to the 36-year-old journeyman, who has had stints at Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace and Real Madrid.
Adebayor, who has 66 caps for Togo, is currently unattached having last played for Paraguayan club Olimpia Asunción.
He only turned out four times for the South American outfit, equating to 217 minutes of actual pitch time.
Before that, he played in Turkey with Istanbul Basaksehir and Kayserispor.
West Brom, of course, have already brought in one veteran former Premier League star this transfer window having signed Branislav Ivanovic on a one-year deal.
TBR’s View – West Brom cannot possibly
West Brom surely can’t move for Adebayor, who has been away from the English top-flight since January 2017.
Even in his last few years in the Premier League he was poor, scoring just one goal in 15 games for Palace.
It is stated that Adebayor wants one last crack at the competition, which he has scored 97 goals to date, but that should not mean West Brom need to go there.
