Found July 03, 2013 on Afrikan Soccer:
Togo International Striker Emmanuel Adebayor could be on his way out of Spurs.  The North London club last night clinched the £17million capture of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians. And now Andre Villas-Boas will switch his attention to his frontline, with Valencia’s Roberto Soldado his top target. The Spurs boss expects a busy summer and Besiktas are said to be lining up a £5m swoop for Adebayor. They hope he is tempted by the country’s 15 percent tax rate. The striker, 29, has two years left on his £80,000-a-week deal but looks to be on his way. Villas-Boas wants the Togo hitman off his wage bill to help him land Soldado. Tottenham are ready to offer £15m — but the Spaniards want closer to £25m. Valencia president Amadeo Salvo Lillo said “We have suffered money problems but not so significantly that we will release players on the cheap.”
