The Italian press is looking to drum up transfer business in relation to Lazio. A double pronged attack is supposedly on the cards featuring a certain Mr Adebayor and a Mr Krancjar.
Adrian Aliaj (we couldn’t get a picture, so we’ve used Eric ‘monster, monster’ Hall) the Tottenham winger’s agent told the press:
“Niko is not happy with the situation at Tottenham at the moment. He wants to play. It is a shame that a man of Niko’s quality is on the bench,” Aliaj said.
“He is loyal to the club and has a contract but it is difficult for him.
“It can be a problem when a player is not playing. When he is not playing he is not happy. He feels down.
“Some clubs in Italy are interested him. Lazio, Roma, Juventus — they are all interested, as well as some teams in Spain and in Germany.
“It’s normal to have teams like these interested in a player with such quality.”
“Niko will meet with the manager in the next seven to 10 days to sort out his future. After this meeting, then we will know what is happening.”
The second man is Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor. The Togolese striker has found himself pushed down the pecking order and out the door at Eastlands ever since the non event £27million signing of Bosnian Edin Dzeko. Jose Mourinho appears pretty dissatisfied with Ade and an offer of a full time deal at Real appears next to zero.
If Ade moves to Lazio, it would cost the Biancoazzurro €5million annually at current rates which may be an issue. I suspect a deal can be done and a good striker will find a home.
