Tottenham Table £17m Bid For Prolific Hitman
Tottenham Hotspur have continued to show ambition in the summer transfer market after tabling a £17million bid for prolific Valencia hitman Roberto Soldado.
With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Tottenham have tabled an offer for Roberto Soldado.
Tottenham Hotspur have continued to show ambition in the summer transfer market after tabling a £17m bid for Valencia hitman Roberto Soldado, according to the Daily Star.
Spurs are on the verge of sealing a £17m deal to sign Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians after the player confirmed he’s heading to north London this summer, and now it seems chairman Daniel Levy is ready to open his chequebook once again to make a big-money signing in the form of Soldado.
The Star claim the 28-year-old Spanish international is under contract with Valencia until 2017 and has a release clause of £26m but Tottenham are looking to take advantage of the La Liga clubs financial problems and are keen to snap him up on the cheap, with Levy hoping a £17m will be enough to do the trick.
Soldado has had a prolific goal-scoring record wherever he’s played and his 30 goals for Valencia last season took him to 194 goals in 397 games so far in his career. His impressive form has also seen him break into the Spanish national team, where he’s netted 6 times in 11 caps.
The report suggests Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas wants to sign two strikers this summer and is hoping to add Soldado as well as international team mate David Villa, who could make a £10m move from Barcelona this summer.
If the north Londoners could secure the services of the Spanish duo, they would have some serious fire-power at their disposal next season, that’s for sure.
