The Spanish club have already rejected Spurs £17 million offer for the striker.
Tottenham have stepped up their interest in Valencia striker Roberto Soldado by offering the Spanish club £20 million for the prolific striker, the Daily Star reports.
However, Valencia continue to play hard ball with Spurs and have said that they won’t accept any bid for Soldado until it activates the strikers £30 million buy out clause.
The Spanish club want Soldado to stay in Spain and have even offered him a new contract but the Spaniard could double his current wages if he were to move to White Hart Lane.
Valencia’s president Amadeo Salvo confirmed that the club had received a new bid from Spurs for Soldado but said that they were reluctant to sell their best player.
“The English team knows the situation. Valencia needs money. But we don’t have to sell our best player,” said Salvo.
Spurs hope that a deal can be reached with Valencia especially as Soldado is known to fancy a move to the Premier League.
The North London Club have already signed Paulinho for £17 million this summer but manager Andre Villas Boas wants to sign at least two strikers, with Christan Benteke on the Portuguese manager’s radar as well as Soldado.
