Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado’s frustrating spell at White Hart Lane could be coming to an end, report the Metro, with the former Valencia man seemingly moving closer to a loan move to Serie A champions Juventus.

Soldado joined Spurs for an eye-watering fee from La Liga outfit Valencia twelve months ago, but he struggled during his first season in English football, largely finding himself overshadowed by Emmanuel Adebayor once Tim Sherwood had replace Andre Villas-Boas as manager.

Things haven’t really improved under new boss Mauricio Pochettino, despite a goal against AEL Limassol in Spurs’ Europa League play-off victory, with Adebayor and even youngster Harry Kane seemingly still ahead of Soldado in the pecking order.

With Tottenham reportedly also close to a move for Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck, it is hard to see Soldado having much of a future at White Hart Lane, opening the door for a loan move to Serie A champions Juventus, where new boss Massimo Allegri is keen to strengthen the attack after Dani Osvaldo returned to Southampton following a loan spell in Turin.

Soldado would appear to fit the bill for the Italians, having been an extremely prolific striker during his time in La Liga with Getafe and Valencia, having come through the youth system at Real Madrid.
