Chelsea may challenge for Adebayor

AdebWest Ham’s summer hopes of doing a deal for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor may be threatened by interest from Chelsea.

According to new reports this morning Jose Mourinho is considering a move for the striker he took to Real Madrid.

Were he to move for Adebayor the 31 year old may have to consider the lesser of two evils – presumably having few first team chances at Stamford Bridge or playing second fiddle to Andy Carroll at Upton Park.

Mourinho is reported to be looking in Adebayor’s direction as the one year deal for Didier Drogba, 37, runs out this summer.

A Hammers source refused to rule out their interest in the player saying: “All balls are in the air – we were interested in January, why wouldn’t we be now!”

  1. Come on Chelski. Save us from ourselves. Buying that wage thief would be a massive move backwards. I can’t be the only one that can see this,surely.

  2. Guess a lot depends uf we change manager or not.Allardyce stays Carroll will play when he is fit(which is rarely).Allardyce goes i dont see a new manager being too interested in Adebayor or even wanting to make Carroll his no.1 striker.Carroll suits very few managers idea of how to play football anymore.

  3. Adebayor = Major VERY costly mistake – Keep Cole if they must have a slow big man on the field
