Could any one advice me regarding about the best adapter in that case (specifically Canon EF lenses to Sony E-mount)?

Generally there're two more or less reliable EF-E adapters: Metabones (MBV) and Sigma MC-11. Neither is ideal, in the worst case you may need both of them: e.g. MBV is good for many Canon-branded lenses, but it doesn't work well with Canon 8-15L; while Sigma is needed for Sigma lenses, and it supports 8-15L, but it doesn't support Tamron 70-300 at all.

All in all, don't count on adapter too much. I switched from Canon to Sony 2 years ago, and I sold most of my Canon lenses really quickly, despite having an adapter. Adapted lenses don't match the performance and convenience of native ones, and also there's added bulk, your mirrorless camera essentially becomes bigger with adapted lens next to DSLR, not smaller.

And now it's 2020, and it may be wiser to stay with Canon, as EOS R6 looks good enough to me.
