Record Tottenham Hotspur signing Roberto Soldado has vowed to try and score at least 20 goals for his new team next season, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The highly rated Spanish international moved to White Hart Lane from Liga outfit Valencia at the start of this month for a whopping £26 million, with the 28-year-old now the most expensive player in the north London club’s history.

And the prolific striker says that he wants to repay the faith that Spurs have shown in him by carrying on his recent remarkable record of scoring at least 20 goals in total in each of his last five seasons for both Valencia and Getafe.

“I have tried to score (20 goals a season) and every time I have done it,” said Soldado, who was speaking at the unveiling of Tottenham’s new cup shirt sponsor AIA.

“This season I am going to try my best from the first day to get back to scoring because they signed me because of this reason.

“My objective is to score more than 20 goals. With the help of my team-mates I can do it.”

Soldado spent three hugely successful campaigns at the Mestalla, with the forward managing to find the back of the net on 81 occasions in just 141 appearances for the Liga giants, including an equally impressive 59 strikes in just 101 league outings for the club.

And prior to his three-year spell with Los Che, Soldado was also just as deadly while playing up front for Getafe, where he netted 33 goals in his 66 matches for the Madrid-based side.
