City linked with a £25m move for Adebayor

Manchester City are reported to be in talks to sign Emmanuel Adebayor from Arsenal for an estimated fee of £25m. The Togo striker has been linked with moves to both Milan and Chelsea this summer but could now be set to complete a shock move to the Premier League's big spenders.

Sky Sports News reports that City are keen to finalise a possible deal before they head for their pre-season tour to South Africa next week. Despite scoring 46-goals over the last two seasons a number of reports suggest that Arsene Wenger would be willing to offload the 25-year-old former Monaco striker.

If Adebayor does join City the Gunners will look to sign Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh. Wenger has previously admitted that Arsenal would be interested in signing the Moroccan international but "only in the event of a departure".
