İstanbul Başakşehir has admitted that the club has not received any offers from Fenerbahce for striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who has been on the books of the club since 2017. The Togo international has played for several high-profile clubs like Arsenal, Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Tottenham during his stellar career. However, the striker has been in the wilderness over the last few years and after a spell with Crystal Palace, he has moved to Turkish football with İstanbul Başakşehir. The journeyman does not appear to be resting anytime soon even at 34 years of age. He has been subjected to interest from Fenerbahce, who are keen to take him ahead of Leicester City.
However,İstanbul Başakşehir presidentGökselGümüşdağ has claimed that the club has not received any offers from Fenerbahce. He said that the club’s privacy and confidential transfer activity will not be opened up in this case. The presence of Emmanuel Adebayor has been threatened by the arrival of Demba Ba. The former Chelsea striker has returned to the big league after terminating his contract with Shanghai Shenhua. This will not be his first time in Turkish football, as he spent a period at Besiktas just after leaving Chelsea in 2014. The arrival of Demba Ba is a significant blow for Adebayor’s hopes of getting regular first-team football.
“There is no offer for Adebayor from Fenerbahçe. Some offers coming from abroad. It’s actually coming for every player.Due to the club’s privacy rules, we do not have the front of the barriers to transfer,” saidGökselGümüşdağ in response to this transfer speculation surrounding Adebayor. Turkish clubs have been quite active in the last few months and they are even trying to bring in Victor Moses, who has been starved of first-team opportunities at Chelsea, with Fenerbahce showing interest.
