Cagliari target Adebayor

Milan - Serie A new boys Cagliari are hoping to lure out-of-contract veteran striker Emmanuel Adebayor to the club, reports said Monday.

Adebayor is without a club after scoring just one goal for Crystal Palace in a six-month spell in the Premier League last season.

Cagliari have been targeting Atalanta striker Marco Borriello but according to Tuttosport are also keen on Adebayor if the move for the former Roma marksman fails to work out.

Adebayor, 32, played arguably the best football of his career in the Premier League with Arsenal and Manchester City.

But the towering striker fell out of favour at Roberto Mancini's City following the arrival of Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli during the 2010-2011 season.

He moved on loan to Real Madrid for six months in January 2011 and although he returned to City, the Togo international was subsequently sent on loan to Tottenham the following season.

Adebayor secured a permanent deal in 2012 and was Spurs' top scorer with 14 goals from 25 appearances but was released by the club in September 2015, preceding his move to Crystal Palace.
