West Ham supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have been desperate to see their side sign a new striker for weeks now, however not much has happened.
Tottenham outcast Emmanuel Adebayor had been mentioned as a possible target previously, only for the move to break down.
However, reports from the Daily Mirror suggest the Hammers move for the former Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid striker could be back on, with Tottenham willing to pay some of the players wages if he agrees to a loan move to Upton Park.
Spurs have been desperate to shift the 31-year-old this summer, but have been unable to find a club willing to take on his £100,000 a week wages.
Tottenham pulled out of a similar move last January, with chairman Daniel Levy unwilling to pay Adebayor whilst he was on loan at a rival club.
It seems now that Levy has been forced to swallow his pride in a bid to avoid paying the whole wage packet, with West Ham in desperate need of a centre forward following early season injuries to Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll.
Our resident Hammers fans here in the Tavern feel that this is a bit of a dodgy move, with every West Ham fan in the pub agreeing that Adebayor is way past his best!
