Reports suggest that Soldado is considering handing in a transfer request at Valencia to force through a move to Spurs.
Tottenham are confident that they will soon complete the signing of striker Roberto Soldado, as the Spaniard considers handing in a transfer request at Valencia to force through a move to White Hart Lane, Goal.com reports.
Valencia rejected Spurs £22 million plus add-ons bid for Soldado on Tuesday, with the Spanish sides president Amadeo Salvo insisting that the Premier League club pay £25 million for the striker.
Spurs have said that they won’t be upping their bid for the player but that their previous bid is still on the table.
Interestingly, the rest of Valencia’s board want to take Spurs offer but Salvo refuses to be convinced.
However, it is known that Soldado is keen on a switch to North London and could hand in a transfer request to Valencia in a bid to push through a move to White Hart Lane.
Spurs have already missed out on David Villa and Christan Benteke this summer and are desperate to land Soldado, who had been prolific for Valencia, scoring 81 goals during his time at the club.
Spurs won’t want to miss out on Soldado but won’t pay over the odd’s for a player that will have little sell on value.
