EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR is set to plough on with his career at the age of 35 – by joining Iranian side Tractor SC.
The former Arsenal, Spurs and Man City striker is a free agent after leaving Turkish club Basaksehir in June.
And now he has been offered a two-year contract by Persian side Travor, say the Tehran Times.
Based in Tabriz, near Iran’s border with Turkey, the club wants the 35-year-old to replace departed former Celtic and Sunderland striker Anthony Stokes.
Ex-Real Madrid foward Adebayor posted a story on Instagram linking him with the Persian Gulf Pro League outfit.
The Togo international spent 11 Premier League seasons with the Gunners, City, Spurs and Crystal Palace.
He began his career in France with Metz and Monaco, and also had a spell on loan at the Bernabeu.
