Schalke have made a £5million bid for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Bundesliga outfit are on the lookout for another hitman after allowing Teemu Pukki to join Celtic and Adebayor is a top target.

The striker is currently on the fringes of life at White Hart Lane and almost joined Besiktas earlier this summer only to reject the switch after they failed to qualify for the Europa League.

Schalke though believe they are in pole position to bring in Adebayor being a Champions League side and they tabled a £5million bid on Thursday evening.
