Adebayor: Friends with Toure
Emmanuel Adebayor has told Manchester City to sign his former Arsenal team-mate Kolo Toure.
Togo international Adebayor recently swapped the Emirates Stadium for Eastlands in a big-money move to join the ambitious project on offer in Manchester.
The 25-year-old is now keen for defender Toure to follow him to City, who have set their sights on overtaking Arsenal in the top four of the Premier League.
City boss Mark Hughes is chasing Chelsea centre-back John Terry, but Adebayor believes Toure would also be a successful signing.
He said: "Kolo is a great friend of mine. He is a big player for Arsenal and a top defender.
"He has been playing in the Premier League for seven or eight years now so he knows this league really well.
"If the manager could get him, he can get exactly what this club wants and needs from him. I'm sure about that.
"I know how good Kolo is and I think what Man City needs now is a top quality defender like him or John Terry."
