Italian side Juventus are considering making a move for towering attacker Emmanuel Adebayor, who is currently on loan at Real Madrid from Manchester City, in the summer transfer window.
Tuttosport reports that the Togolese hitman, who was farmed out to los Blancos in January, is no longer needed at the Citizens and the striker is widely expected to leave the club on a permanent basis.
La Vecchia Signora have been far from impressive in the 2010-11 campaign and sporting director Giuseppe Marotta is eager to add some more firepower to their squad ahead of next season.
However, the Turin titans are only permitted to sign one non-EU player from abroad per season, and Lyon's Brazilian international Michel Bastos is reportedly Juve's primary target when the window opens again, which could hamper any potential move for the 27-year-old.
Adebayor started his professional career with Metz and also wore the jerseys of Monaco and Arsenal before joining Manchester City in the summer of 2009.
