White Hart Lane side look to improve attack.
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is ready to make formal moves for two fresh striking options as he seeks to improve his White Hart Lane attack.
The North London club had set their sights on Aston Villa ace Christian Beneteke but the Belgian opted to withdraw his transfer request and sign a new deal which will see Villas-Boas turn his attention to Valencia forward Roberto Soldado.
The Daily Star claim that the 28 year old Spanish international is rated at £20m, a fee that some may feel is steep but when you consider the consistent level of form the former Real Madrid man has exhibited in recent seasons.
The 28 year old has netted 81 goals in 141 matches since moving to the Mestalla in June 2010 and could be ready to consider a new challenge having played his entire career in his native Spain.
Villas-Boas continues to pursue Brazilian Leandro Damiao, who has long been a Tottenham target but has perhaps added third option Loic Remy as a more likely capture this summer.
The French international impressed during his half season in the Premier League with QPR, scoring six goals in 13 starts despite his side’s relegation, and Super Hoops owner Tony Fernandes may well feel the need to balance the books following their fall to the Championship and this source claims Tottenham could land the former Marseille man for as little as £10m.
Emmanuel Adebayor was a real disappointment last term, struggling for form throughout the season, and Jermain Defoe also suffered a fairly poor second half of 2012/13 and as such Villas-Boas is wisely looking to bring in reinforcements.
