Celtic, the champions of Scotland, are having a quiet window so far compared to famous rivals Rangers who are on the verge of completing their seventh summer signing in the form of Joe Aribo. The Hoops, however, have succeeded in getting a deal done for David Turnbull in the aftermath of a social media controversy. The bad news is that they are fighting a losing battle to keep hold of Kieran Tierney amid Arsenal’s firm interest in the youngster.
Amid all these speculations, the Bhoys are weighing up a bizarre move for veteran Emmanuel Adebayor who is available on a Bosman transfer after parting ways with Istanbul Basaksehir on Friday by mutual consent. The Togo international has been a journeyman throughout his career having experienced the game in France, England, Spain and most recently, Turkey.
Despite preferring a return to London, Glasgow might become his next destination if the latest report from Sun Sport is believed to be accurate.
The 35-year-old centre-forward enjoyed enormous success in England with Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. He had spells with Real Madrid, Monaco and Metz as well and spent a brief stint with Crystal Palace before joining the Turkish outfit back in January 2017.
At Basaksehir, Adebayor regained his mojo and has now put the likes of Celtic, West Ham, Sheffield United and Watford on alert. While the Hammers are in the hunt for a prolific ‘number 9’ to replace recently released Andy Carroll, a couple of unspecified Serie A sides are also monitoring the player’s status ahead of a potential transfer.
The Hoops, meanwhile, require attacking reinforcements even though fans’ favourite Leigh Griffiths has rejoined the group after a sabbatical from football. Vakoun Issouf Bayo has not been handed enough minutes to feature as a first-team regular whereas both Oliver Burke and Timothy Weah have returned to their parent clubs (West Brom and PSG) after an underwhelming winter loan.
The pressure is on Odsonne Edouard to spearhead the attack week in week out and therefore, a move for Adebayor might have been considered looking to replicate Rangers’ success story with 36-year-old Jermain Defoe.
Adebayor is one of the finest when in form but he has been a controversial figure on and off the pitch. The former Togo international’s attitude and wage demands halted his upsurge at the zenith of his career. Although the Premier League outfits hold a superior spending power to match his salary and bonuses, Celtic should give it a try and keep chasing the talisman to bolster the frontline as a short-term fix.
