    Transfer deadline day is firmly upon us, which will put an end to a month of endless transfer rumours but no actual business as yet for Tottenham.

    With a number of players said to be potentially on their way out of the club later today, the most interesting story in the press today surrounds the future of Emmanuel Adebayor.

    The Mirror have stated that the Togolese forward is wanted by both Stoke and QPR, with a potential exit from White Hart Lane on the cards.

    Adebayor has had a disappointing campaign and has had to watch on from the sidelines for most of it as Harry Kane has become Mauricio Pochettino’s go-to centre forward.

    With key attacker Bojan Krkic injured at the Britannia Stadium and out for the rest of the season, Mark Hughes’ men are said to be ready to add the African today.

    QPR manager Harry Redknapp knows Adebayor well from his time at Spurs and there seems a realistic possibility that the striker’s time at the club could genuinely be coming to an end.

    Spurs surely will be willing to allow the former Manchester City man leave if they can find a replacement today, but the significant obstacle in any deal will surely be the striker’s wages.

    Adebayor is said to be one of Spurs’ top earners, with the attacker spurning the opportunity to leave the club in the past due to potential new employers not meeting his demands.

    In this regard, QPR seem like a more likely destination.

    Dele Alli

    Meanwhile, Dele Alli’s name has been mentioned as a possible target for the North Londoners.

    The 18-year-old midfielder has been a revelation at the MK Dons this season, scoring goals at will and seemingly a player with real potential to play at a higher level.

    Metro have today claimed that Newcastle were said to be closing in on the teenage sensation, but that Spurs were ready to intervene in the race for the youngster’s signature.

    Just how much truth is in the rumour remains to be seen, but the England under-19’s star is certainly an exciting prospect.

    Whether he is ready for the Premier League is another thing, but one way or the other Alli is a player that Spurs should certainly have an eye on.

    It may make more sense to loan him back to the MK Dons to give him continued first-team football on a regular basis.

    Would it matter if we didnt get a replacement such is Adebayors worth at the club?
    He is a parasite that needs moving on at the earliest opportunity.

    Plus he's 18 and HG and would not take up a squad place, therefore it he would slot in without any movement required, pure diahorea dribble.

    Would be bought as potential and a gamble, look at Zaha he was the next big talent and fell flat on his face?
    surely we need a striker if Ade leaves because if Kane gets injured we will be left with Soldado, do i need to say more? we can't just keep relying on Kane and Eriksen. Coys.

    Indeed Adebayor drags the club down and must be moved on - but we do need support for Kane & Soldado.
    There are a raft of young strikers available. Just pick one: Ings, DePay, Benteke, -even Balotelli would do.

    I agree we keep relying on Kane and Eriksen..what happens when teams want to double up on our two impact players or they are both injured? What happens then? We need players that can take the workload off these guys and ease the pressure on the focal point of Kane and Eriksen...Sign Konoplyanka and Depay and Cavani...why not?

    I'm just tired of hearing we're linked with this player that player, tbh I'd like to hear about deal has been done for konoplyanka, another striker, we say bye bye to kamikaze Kabul and I'd be happy with that.
