Club eye Spanish striker to boost their attack.
Tottenham are the latest club to cast admiring glances over Valencia striker Roberto Soldado, according to the Daily Mail.
Spurs scouts will be watching the 27-year-old in action for Valencia this weekend as they travel to Real Sociedad whilst Gareth Bale will be finding out if he’s won the PFA player of the year award.
Chairman Daniel Levy is hoping to build a squad around the Welshman in the hopes of keeping him at White Heart Lane and one of the club’s main targets is a new striker.
Soldado is one of Spain’s most natural goal scorers and has become hot property during his three years with Los Che. Beginning his career with Real Madrid, where he was prolific for their B team, he moved on to Osasuna and Getafe when it became clear that his chances would be limited. Since joining Valencia in 2010 he has bagged 75 goals in 152 appearances, with 23 of those strikes coming this season.
Spurs were reportedly interested in the seven cap Spanish international last year but balked at the £30 million valuation, however, it is believed that the cash strapped club will knock the price down to £20 million to help ease their financial difficulties.
