Lyon coach confirms interest in signing Adebayor

LYON, France (AP) " Lyon coach Bruno Genesio says he needs to talk with Emmanuel Adebayor to find more about his desire to join the seven-time French champion before offering him a contract.

Currently without a club, Adebayor has been linked with the French league club, which is looking for reinforcement following a string of injuries. Lyon played without five regular starters, including striker Alexandre Lacazette, against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League midweek.

Genesio says he will meet with Adebayor because "I have lots of questions to ask him. I need to know his motivation and to find more about him."

The 32-year-old Adebayor, a former Arsenal and Totthenam player, was released by Crystal Palace at the end of last season after playing just 15 games for the London club.
