Tottenham to bid for £17m forward

Valencia’s Roberto Soldado

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to bring Roberto Soldado to White Hart Lane, according to The Daily Star.

The Valencia forward, who scored 24 goals last season, is set to be on the receiving end of a £17million bid from the Premier League side.

Spurs are keen to strengthen their attacking options this summer, after missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League by a single point.

The 28-year-old is contracted to Valencia until 2017, and has a £26m release clause. But Andre Villas-Boas is confident that he can sign the forward for £9m less, due to the Spanish side’s financial problems.

Soldado has been tipped to play a big role in Spain’s defence of the World Cup trophy in 2014, despite being an unused substitute in the final of the Confederations Cup on Sunday, when Spain were defeated 3-0 by hosts Brazil.

The forward scored four goals in seven Champions League appearances this season and looks like the perfect candidate as AVB looks to bolster his squad over the summer.

The Portuguese manager could team Soldado up with his international colleague David Villa, who is another Tottenham target. The North London side are expected to make a £10million bid for the 31-year-old, and team the Spanish duo together in Lilywhite shirts.

Would Soldado do well at Tottenham? Should Spurs sign the Spanish duo?
