Aston Villa are being offered the chance to sign Emmanuel Adebayor as they look for a solution to their striker crisis.
Frontman Wesley has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a cruciate injury in the game against Burnley on New Year’s Day.
And 35-year-old former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham striker would love the chance to prove he can still cut it in the Premier League after leaving Turkish club Kayserispor in December.
The fact Adebayor is a free agent could appeal to Villa, who are limited in what they can spend because of FFP regulations.
The club spent more than £100million in the summer, £22.5m of which went on Brazilian striker Wesley.
He has managed six goals in 22 appearances for Villa and has shouldered a lot of criticism but his injury is still a big blow to Dean Smith with his side fourth from bottom and one point above the relegation zone.
