Adebayor is a free agent having left Turkish outfit Kayserispor in December so the Premier League duo would not have to sign him before Friday’s transfer deadline.
The Togo international is desperate for one last chance in England as he wants to get over the 100-goal mark in the Premier League.
Adebayor, who has played for Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Crystal Palace in England, is currently on 97 Premier League goals.
The 6ft 3in experienced forward has been playing in Turkey since joining Istanbul Basaksehir in January 2017.
His last Premier League goal came for Crystal Palace on February 13, 2016 when he scored in the Eagles’ 2-1 home defeat by Watford.
He first moved to England 14 years ago when Arsene Wenger brought him to north London from Monaco for just £3million.
His most memorable moment in the Premier League came when he sprinted the full length of the pitch to celebrate scoring against Arsenal for Manchester City in September 2009.
