West Ham are reportedly in the pursuit for veteran centre-forward Emmanuel Adebayor, who is available as a free agent this summer.
According to the Sun, the Hammers are looking at the 35-year-old and the player is keen on a move to London after previous spells in the English capital.
It is understood that Sheffield United, Watford, Celtic and a couple of Italian teams are also in the frame for him.
Adebayor has left Turkish club Basaksehir by mutual consent, but he did score four goals in 24 games for them across all competitions last season.
The 66-time capped Togo international is not stranger to English football and he previously had spells at Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Crystal Palace.
West Ham have been linked with several striker this summer and they definitely need some more attacking reinforcements at the London Stadium for next season.
But Adebayor is the strangest target to date and it would be a bizarre signing for the Hammers to make.
The African striker is well best the peak years of his career and it’s highly doubtful he could make a serious impact in the Premier League again.
West Ham need a young exciting striker to walk through the doors in the summer to improve the XI and should let rivals scrap it out for Adebayor.
