Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools says on Adebayor & Arsenal

Arsenal are ending the season strongly with new signing Andrey Arshavin playing his part. I had no doubts he`d be a success with the club as the way they play completely suits the lad`s game. Players like Arshavin need options in terms of passes to impress and Arsenal are one of the best teams in the business in that respect.

One of the main factors in Arsenal`s resurgence is the return to form of Kolo Toure. The defender seemed to have lost his way and looked to be on his way out of the club but weirdly since announcing that he and his centre-half partner William Gallas don`t like each other, they`ve both done really well.

With the season nearing its end, once again Emmanuel Adebayor is being linked with moves away from the Emirates. This season the Togolese striker has just not turned up and looks the perfect example of a player who thinks he has made it and has lost his hunger as a result. Don`t get me wrong the big hitman is as good as anybody when he has fire in his belly. His performance at White Hart Lane last season when the Spurs defenders couldn`t live with him showed just how good he can be. Unfortunately he hasn`t shown the same desire all season. It would seem getting his new £80,000 contract in the summer has led to the lad resting on the laurels rather than fighting to show he`s worth the cash.

I wouldn`t be surprised if Arsene Wenger decides to cash in on Adebayor in the summer for £20million or something and brings in a new big powerful striker for a fraction of the cost.
