Besiktas have revealed that they are confident of signing Emmanuel Adebayor from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, depending on if they can escape a ban for match-fixing.
The Togo striker has been tipped to leave White Hart Lane after a poor year last season for Spurs, and Besiktas have been touted as one of the clubs interested in the player.
The Turkish outfit face a ban from the upcoming Europa League campaign for alleged involvement in match-fixing, but they have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and are confident of getting the decision overturned, which they feel could help them land Adebayor.
"We are interested in Adebayor, the transfer could still go ahead," Besiktas president Fikret Orman told the Daily Mirror.
"The deal breaker for Adebayor was whether we would play in Europe this season, as soon as we are cleared I will travel to London and complete the deal."
Adebayor joined Spurs on a permanent deal from Manchester City last summer.
