Wenger OK With Adebayor Joining Rival Club

MOST COMMENTED

Arsene Wenger has opened the door to Emmanuel Adebayor leaving Arsenal this summer by stating he would have no problem in selling a player to Chelsea or any other big four rival.

Adebayor, who has endured a turbulent season after he came, in Wenger's words, "close to leaving the club" last summer. He has emerged as a possible target for Chelsea. Roman Abramovich, Chelsea's owner, admires the Togo striker and so does Carlo Ancelotti, the Milan coach whom Chelsea hopes to install as Guus Hiddink's successor.

Wenger suggested that he wasn't worried about selling players to one of his biggest rivals. "Yes, of course, it's unusual," he said. "But we sold [Ashley] Cole to Chelsea and we bought [William] Gallas [from Stamford Bridge] so you can never say I never do it because I've already done it.

"I don't want to go especially into any individual assessment of who we want to keep and who not, at the moment, and normally Adebayor is part of our plans for the future. If I feel that a player should go, or could go, why not sell him to one of the other top four?"
