Would you sell Emmanuel Adebayor for £32 million?

If you believe the stories coming out of Italy, AC Milan could be about to test Arsenal's resolve by offering a mind boggling £32 million for top gun Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Togolese striker beached the 30 goal barrier last season, including Arsenal's second against the Rossoneri in San Siro and despite pledging his future to the club just a few days ago, the Italian media would have us believe that he has agreed personal terms that will take him to the Serie A champions this summer.

The stumbling block, if you swallow any of this, is that Arsene Wenger wants £32 million for his star striker. That's double what Barcelona paid for Thierry Henry last summer and quite frankly, if there's any truth to it at all, I'd urge Le Gaffer to agree the deal and use the money to strengthen Arsenal for next season..

With that kind of war chest, Arsene could buy my favourite target Karem Benzema, or David Villa or Samuel Eto'o or just about any other striker of his choice and still have change to buy another player of the same calibre. Or how about a swap deal involving Alexandre Pato? And all that for a player who cost Arsenal a reputed £3 million two years ago.

Now I'm not suggesting that Ade-cool is not a good player, but he's not yet worth anything approaching £30 million and it could be argued that with the chances he was presented with by his team mates last season, his goal tally should have been significantly higher.

In saying that, I'd like to see the 24-year-old stay in north London and go on to develop into an Arsenal legend.

But let's play fantasy Wenger for a moment: how much money would it take to persuade you to part with our top scorer? And which player, or players, would be on you wish list as a replacement for Adebayor? Share your thoughts here.
