Former Premier League striker Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor is now a free agent after his contract with Turkish Super League side Kayserispor was terminated.
He had joined Kayserispor in the summer and went on to score two league goals in eight appearances for the Turkish club.
The Togolese international had more success with Istanbul Basaksehir FC of Turkey where he scored 24 league goals.
Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor played for clubs like Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace in the English top flight.
The Togolese striker signed for Arsenal from French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in January 2006.

He is not fondly remembered at Arsenal following the manner of his exit to Premier League champions Manchester City.
Emmanuel Adebayor graduated from hero to zero in the eyes of the Arsenal fans after he ran the length of the pitch to celebrate the goal he scored against the Gunners in his first game against them in the colours of Manchester City.
The Nigerian-born Togolese international has struggled to hit the heights he attained at Arsenal with the other clubs he featured for till date.
His best season as a professional player was the 2007/08 campaign when he scored 30 goals for Arsenal while Arsene Wenger was still the manager.
What Willian told friends favours Arsenal
North London outfit Arsenal have been favoured by the statement reportedly credited to Brazilian international and Chelsea winger, Willian on his wish for the future.
The West London outfit have been struggling to hand a new deal to the Brazilian but the terms have been the major challenge as the club have an existing policy for players who are above 30.
A number of clubs are already lined up for his services with Arsenal also indicating interests, alongside David Beckham’s Inter Miami with a bumper offer.

Bur from emerging reports, Willian has already told his friends of his desire to stay in London and play under manager Mikel Arteta with Arsenal already willing to hand him the three-year-deal he is requesting.
Mikel Arteta sees investment in Willian on a free deal as a wise one as he could add to the attacking strength of the club as well as help younger players with his experience.
Chelsea are only willing to give the 31-year-old a two-year deal and that has been rejected which means he would be a free player in few weeks.
Meanwhile, manager Frank Lampard is making frantic efforts to convince the club hierarchy for a three-year-deal for the Brazilian winger and that has been difficult to achieve.
EPL: Arsenal now winning in race for Brazilian defender
North London club, Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta is very aware of the need to reinforce his defence for the coming season and has been making efforts to land new players.
The North London club have been in the race for Brazilian international Gabriel Magalhaes for the past months alongside other suitors. It was earlier thought that the Gunners have lost out of the race but that has since changed following the latest report.
The French media outlet, France Bleu Nord reports that the Gunners are now in a better position to secure the service of Gabriel Magalhaes from French Ligue 1 side, Lille in this summer transfer window.

Italian Serie A club, Napoli were earlier mentioned as favourites but have been toppled by the English Premier League side for the deal as Lille are willing to part ways with Gabriel Magalhaes for the right price.
With qualification to the Europa League, the Gunners have been financially boosted to do some transfer deals this summer window and is now likely they will be able to meet with the £27 million tag placed on the player.
The 22-year-old is the kind of player needed by manager Mikel Arteta because he is young, strong, and technically sound to compete in the English Premier League.
EPL: Unai Emery to save Guendouzi’s career
Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery is making efforts to save the career of Arsenal youngster Matteo Guendouzi by giving him a way out in this summer transfer window.
It has been a difficult time for Matteo Guendouzi as he has been frozen out of the team and out of favour with manager Mikel Arteta. There is no doubt he no longer has a future at the club.
Efforts by the Gunners to include him in swap deals for both Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho and Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey is yet to yield any result.

However, he could finally have his wish of playing under his former manager and get his career running again as Unai Emery is reportedly ready to make a move for Matteo Guendouzi this summer window.
Unai Emery only resumed as a manager with Spanish La Liga outfit Villarreal in the last few weeks and has been making efforts to rebuild the team by bringing in fresh legs.
However, there is no doubt that the North London outfit will accept a meaningful deal for Matteo Guendouzi from the Spanish outfit and the player will jump at the opportunity to work with the man that brought him to the Emirates Stadium.
EPL: Liverpool to storm Arsenal for promising youngster
One of the battles North London outfit Arsenal face is keeping one of the biggest prospects, Folarin Balogun at the club for more seasons and that has been difficult.
Folarin Balogun has already told the Gunners that he would not be signing a new deal and that makes him a subject of transfer this summer window so as not to lose him for free.
The 19-year-old striker, who scored 10 goals in 15 Premier League 2 appearances this season is keen on first-team football and not convinced he can get that any time soon under manager Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium, the reason why he wants to leave the club.

A number of clubs in England and abroad have been monitoring the situation with Folarin Balogun and are ready to move in, having watched him severally with his youth side.
However, current English Premier League champions, Liverpool is one of the clubs that have not hidden their interest in Folarin Balogun and are willing to pay for his service, according to Sky Sports.
Arsenal want a minimum of £8 million for Folarin Balogun which the Reds team are willing to pay this summer window.
A decision is yet to be reached by the Gunners and the player as they will both want to consider all the options available to take the right step.
EPL: Arsenal urged to move in for Kante
One player that is a surprise on the exit list of West London outfit, Chelsea is N’Golo Kante with reports claiming that he could be leaving the club at the end of the season.
N’Golo Kante joined the Blues team after helping Leicester City win the English Premier League to become a star and important player at the Stamford Bridge.
The story began to change for the French player when former manager Maurizio Sarri joined Chelsea and brought in Jorginho to take the role previously handled by N’Golo Kante.

It is yet, an unchanged story for the former Leicester City star as he has been battling for playing time under manager Frank Lampard. He is now tipped to leave the club this summer window.
However, Arsenal have been urged to move in for the World Cup winner as manager Mikel Arteta battles to add depth to his midfield. The Gunners are in the race for Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey but are yet to strike a deal.
There is no doubt that the Blues player will be a great addition to the North London outfit and his settling at the club will be easier than a player who has not been in London before. The only challenge might be in his weekly wage.
EPL: Arsenal handed major boost as Crystal Palace bid gets rejected
English Premier League club, Arsenal are also part of the suitors, interested in the signature of QPR star Eberechi Eze, alongside others.
QPR are expecting to part ways with the Nigerian international this summer window having learned a lot of interest in the player from English Premier League sides.
The latest report now reveals that Crystal Palace have gone ahead of the North London outfit with a £16m bid but it was rejected with the Hoops hoping to get a better deal for the player.

The Eagles are keen to strengthen their attack ahead of next season and see Eze as a perfect option after seeing him excel in the Championship this season.
However, the development remains a major hope for the Gunners who are also interested in the signature of Eberechi Eze and it gives the club more time to prepare a bid for the quality forward.
It is now unclear if the Gunners value Eberechi Eze more than £16 million and will be ready to invest such an amount for his signature because of the less need for attackers in the team.
With Arsenal hoping to keep Gabon international striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the club for more seasons, there is no way they will seek to invest in another striker.
EPL: Arsenal to reward impressive player with a new deal
Emiliano Martinez is one player that earned the trust of the Arsenal family with his impressive performance during the restart of the season.
He got the chance when first-choice goalkeeper, Bernd Leno got injured and has proved that he can do the job without any doubt.
It is now reported that the Gunners are ready to give Emiliano Martinez a new deal as a reward that will keep him at the club for more years and could probably get more playing time under manager Mikel Arteta.

The 27-year-old Argentinean barely featured for the Gunners but he still had a very good end of the season as he was instrumental in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup finals.
The Sun is, therefore, reporting that Gabon international forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will not be alone on the table for a new deal but would be joined by Emiliano Martinez.
What is unknown is if Emiliano Martinez will seek to remain at the club as a second goalkeeper if Bernd Leno returns or will consider a move away to start a new life elsewhere.
Following his impressive performance, Emiliano Martinez is already receiving bids from a number of clubs in England and abroad and that could tempt him for a move.
Things are good for me here, target sends a message to Arsenal, Chelsea
Both London clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea have indicated an interest in the signature of Matthias Ginter, from the German Bundesliga club, Borussia Monchengladbach.
The West London outfit was reported to be favourites ahead of the Gunners in the deal as they were ready to meet with the asking price but that the player is already rejecting any move away from Germany.
Matthias Ginter has, therefore, made his commitment to the Bundesliga outfit very public, insisting that eh would not be leaving the club any time soon.

He told Kicker that he is aware of all the interests and speculations and is being flattered but that will not be enough to take him out of the club because Borussia Monchengladbach is enough for him.
Meanwhile, the Blues and the North London outfit are keen on defenders for the coming season as they hope to compete favourably in their various European competitions, the reason why Matthias Ginter is being considered.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is believed to have named the players that would be leaving the club this transfer window as he hopes to rebuild the team to get stronger in the coming season.
The defence is a major priority for the Spanish manager as well as the midfield department.
