The Daily Mirror reports that Emmanuel Adebayor has held talks with Chelsea as he nears a possible return to the Premier League.
The forward was released by the Spurs earlier this season. It should be noted that the Togo international is still being paid £100,000 per week until his contract expires next summer.
According to the reports, he contacted the Blues in a bid to gauge their interest in a potential move and many are wondering once Mourinho who was eyeing the ex-Tottenham player is kicked out, the player could still land a move to the Blues camp.
The source says that Adebayor have opened negotiations with West Ham and Watford.
In his career Adebayor has scored 176 goals in 483 appearances. He played for such clubs as Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester City.
With Hiddink heading to town, it remains to be seen whether the former national team coach of the Socceroos of Australia, will endorse the striker's signing.
