Aston Villa set to secure deal to sign ex-Arsenal striker?

AdebayorAston Villa fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are unsure what to make of the news they have just read in the Express – with the publication claiming that the Villains are eyeing a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor, as a replacement for Christian Benteke.

The Belgian forward is all but set to leave Villa Park this summer, with Liverpool and Chelsea both vying for the signature of the highly-rated 24-year-old striker.

As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, Benteke is undoubtedly full of potential and a move to a top four Premier League team would not be a surprise in the slightest.

A large group of Spurs fans over by the dartboard here in the Tavern feel this would be a huge blow to the side if they were to lose Benteke, with most feeling that Adebayor would not be an adequate replacement.

Aston Villa fans…… What do you make of this news? Is Adebayor a good enough replacement for Benteke? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
