Palace and Chelsea have been linked with the former Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham striker this week.

Pardew said: “Adebayor is a player that is there for somebody and it is a question of ourselves wondering whether we are the right club for him is and whether he is the right player for us. It’s something that is in our mix.

“You want to try and bring in a quality player and so therefore you can’t dismiss anyone or you can’t not think about all the strikers that are possibly available. Because 90 per cent of them are not available, they’re at clubs and they’re on good contracts and the clubs want them because they are successful.

“There are not many who have not been in the first team. It is a very, very small market for us and we are focusing on that.

“So he (Adebayor) is in that group. Not just for us but many teams in the Premier League to wonder whether that is something you can do a deal with.”
