Emmanuel Adebayor could get his Premier League return with Swansea if they can convince Bafetimbi Gomis to replace him in Turkey, according to reports in Wales.
The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker joined Istanbul Basaksehir in January and helped them finish second and book a place in the Champions League.
But the former Real Madrid and Tottenham man has always spoken about a desire to return to England and walesonline.co.uk claim the Swans are ready to offer him a route.
French striker Gomis – famed for his panther goal celebration – spent last season on loan at Marseille where he scored a mighty 21 goals in his 33 appearances.
And Paul Clement apparently hopes to cash in on the forward while his stock is high.
The Swans have lodged a bid of Gomis plus £1.75million for the 33-year-old who scored a stunning hat-trick in his side’s 4-0 thrashing of Turkish giants Galatasaray.
Adebayor said the six-month loan he spent at Palace in 2016 was the lowest point of his career.
He said: “The only error that I made was to sign for Crystal Palace in January 2016.
“I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me: ‘Manu, you have to start playing again!’
“It was the worst decision of my career.”
