Bundesliga side could be the ones to end Soldado’s White Hart Lane nightmare.
Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen are interested in ending Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado’s miserable spell in the Premier League, report the Mail, but the BayArena club are unlikely to be willing to meet Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s valuation of the Spanish forward.
Soldado has failed to adapt to life in English football since he joined the club from La Liga giants Valencia 18 months ago, despite his impressively prolific goalscoring record in Spanish football, and it would be little surprise if all parties decide that it is beneficial for his spell at Spurs to come to an end.
However, the report suggests that Levy is keen to recoup as much of the £26m that Spurs paid to Valencia for Soldado, which could price Leverkusen out of a move for the striker and leave him at White Hart Lane, where he is currently being outshone by youth team graduate Harry Kane.
Leverkusen are reportedly considering allowing young striker Josip Drmic to join rivals Hamburg, but only if they can secure a replacement in the form of Soldado, something that only seems likely if Levy lowers his asking price.
