Setting Son for Liverpool raises Adebayor hope for striker crisis

Tottenham striker has not started a game under AVB this season

Unhappy Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor could be the answer to Liverpool's striker woes.

Adebayor's future at White Hart Lane is under a cloud after being snubbed yet again by Andre Villas-Boas.

The former Gunner has not started a Premier game this season and was on the bench for the high-profile clash against Chelsea on Saturday despite Gareth Bale missing the game.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is desperately short of firepower being heavily dependent on Uruguay striker Luis Suarez with Fabio Borini to undergo an operation on a fracture in his foot.

Suarez provided the assist for Raheem Sterling's winner against Reading but seemed to suffering from fatigue after having played against Bolivia three days earlier.

Signed for £5 million just two months ago following a loan spell from Manchester City last season where he scored 17 goals in 32 Premier League games, Rodgers could cash in on Adebayor in January.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have been told to forget about signing Hamburg striker Son Heung-Min, 20, according to The Sun.
Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen said: “We will do everything we can to keep him.”
