Gossip: Spurs offer Adebayor for Benteke

Spurs to swap Emmanuel Adebayor for Christian Benteke, Man City want Fabinho and Everton chasing Sam Byram are among Tuesday's headlines.


Tim Sherwood could be reunited with Emmanuel Adebayor at Aston Villa as Tottenham plan to offer the striker as part of their pursuit of Christian Benteke.

The Daily Mirror claims Spurs plan to rival Liverpool for the Belgian hitman, but like the Reds believe the 32.5million buyout is too expensive.

But Spurs hope Sherwood's relationship with Adebayor from their time together at White Hart Lane will work in their favour.

After being brought in from the cold by Sherwood in 2013/14, the Togolese scored 14 goals in just 25 games for Spurs.

One potential stumbling block could be Adebayor's huge 100,000-a-week contract, which comfortably tops Villa's current highest earners.

Benteke, 24, has two years left on his contract and has no intention of signing a new deal to extend his stay at Villa Park.


Man City are keen to sign Monaco right-back Fabinho as they plan for life after Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna.

The Sun and Daily Mail reports City, although not making right-back a priority this summer, have long-term concerns over the full-backs, with both now into their thirties.

And one player they see as a potential long-term replacement is Monaco's Fabinho, who has only just sealed a 4m move to the principality following two years on loan from Portuguese side Rio Ave.

However, that deal was arranged well in advance and now value the full-back at 15m.

The defender, who previously had a spell on loan at Real Madrid, made his international debut for Brazil earlier this month and was included in their squad that reached the quarter-finals of the Copa America, going out to Paraguay on penalties.


The Guardian claims Everton have sounded out Leeds about the potential sale of highly-rated right-back Sam Byram.

Byram, 21, has made over 100 appearances for the Whites since breaking through as a teenager, but with just a year left on his deal, could be sold by Leeds. Newcastle and Sunderland are also reported to have made enquiries to Leeds this summer.

Everton are making plans to bring in Byram despite doing all they can to dissuade Man United from swooping for Seamus Coleman.

The Toffees have not received an enquiry from Old Trafford as yet and have no desire to sell the Donegal-born defender, who signed a new five-year contract with the club only last summer.

Byram recently pledged his future to Leeds and new manager Uwe Rosler.
