Valencia have told interested clubs that they will have to pay £25 million to sign Soldado.
Valencia president Amadeo Salvo has told Liverpool and Tottenham that they will need to make a move for striker Roberto Soldado before August 3rd or risk losing out on the prolific front-man, the Daily Mirror reports.
He also stated that interested clubs must pay Soldado’s £25 million release clause or the striker will be staying with the Spanish club for another year.
Spurs are especially desperate to land Soldado, having missed out on several quality strikers already this summer.
The club were thought to be close to signing David Villa before the Spaniard moved to Atletico Madrid while Spurs were also close to signing Christan Benteke but they couldn’t agree a fee with Aston Villa so the Belgian striker signed a new contract with the Birmingham based club.
The North London club have now turned their attentions to Soldado , who has been one of La Liga’s most prolific strikers during his time at Valencia.
Liverpool are also thought to be interested in signing the Spaniard and could see Soldado as a possible replacement for Luis Suarez should the Uruguay international leave Anfield for Real Madrid or Arsenal.
