Pep Guardiola has made Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor his top summer target according to El Mundo Deportivo. The Arsenal striker has been in spectacular form this season scoring 24 goals. The Togolese striker would come at a spicy price for Barcelona who are reported to be asked for Ã‚Â£23 million for his services.
But there is another obstacle that stands in the way of the transfer as Arsenal are thought to be unwilling to let go of their top striker. the Gunners have just finished another trophy-less campaign and now they look to rebuild their team for next season and challenge for top honours once again. Naturally, the talented Adebayor is one of their key players and they will do everything in their power to keep him.
Should the Adebayor deal fall through, Guardiola will look at Arsenal’s local rivals, Tottenham for an alternative. Dimitar Berbatov, the best player at White Hart Lane by quite a margin will be more affordable at Ã‚Â£18 million and he could also be more likely to be able to move as the club has made it clear in the past that they are willing to let him go should the wight offer come in.

Dear oh dear. I’ll go edit this article for you. Where it says,
“Dimitar Berbatov, the best player at White Hart Lane by quite a margin will be more affordable at Â£18 million”
“Dimitar Berbatov, the second best player at White Hart Lane behind Ledley King will be less affordable at Â£25 million”
As a Spurs fan i would agree he is a great player however to say he is our best player by a margin is abit extreme, Robbie Keane has a goal record over the last five years which is not been beaten by many and in Jonathan Woodgate we have one of the best centre halfs in Europe the same goes for Ledley King when fit. You also seem to have your sums wrong Berbatove will command much more than Â£18m probably closer to Â£28m anyway where did you get it into your head that Barca would want him and… Read more »
do not think that berbatov would be cheaper than Adebayor if Spurs let him go that cheaply in current markets should be looking at 30million
not for 18millon , are you having a laugh berby is twice the player he is .
sorry but Â£18 million for berba lol lol lol think they have the valuation of the players the wrong way round??? ady-bi-or-whore has only had one good season according to the gurners, on the other hand berba is being linked with every top team the milan’s, barce, real, manure & chavski!!! Â£18mill valuation is just a stupid piece of jurno!! if you really think berba is only worth Â£18mill then ady-bi-or-whore would only fetch Â£8 at the most thats the trouble with you dial square lot you dont like people having better than what you have
18 Million, you must joking. 18 Million and Giovani maybe?
Ridiculous, 18 mill might buy you Berbs right arm, 41 should be broke down like this to make it believable: Berb 40 million Ade 1 million
lol look at the headline ‘Barcelona target Â£41m worth of Arsenal and Tottenham strikers’. Then they go on to say they EITHER want the Â£23 mil one or the Â£18 mil one. That’s not Â£41 mil, that’s EITHER Â£23 mil or Â£18 mil, sorry to have to clear that up for the retarded journos here. Your valuation for Berbatov is likely wrong. I think Spurs might be a bit over optimistic in expecting anything over Â£25 mil for him. He’s certainly a great player but let’s not get wrapped up in tabloid style valuations. If he wants to leave and… Read more »
Actually that’s more like 3x as much by most people’s valuations.
Also as an Arsenal fan let me honestly say Keane is better than Berbatov. Yeah he’s great on his day, but I’d rather have Keane at Arsenal than him. He’s a better all-rounder and has consistently been very good for you guys.
