Londoners are desperate to add more firepower to their attack.
Tottenham Hotspur have identified in-form Valencia front man Roberto Soldado for a big-money move to White Hart Lane at the end of the season, according to reports in the Mail on Sunday.
The North London club have made the addition of a new centre forward with a real eye for goal their number one priority of the summer when the transfer window reopens on June 1.
Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has by all accounts lost patience finally with striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who has failed on a consistent basis to deliver the goals that the Portuguese had been expecting this campaign.
And now the Champions League-chasing club are putting in place plans to lure Valencia’s Spain international to the Lane, with his record of having scored at least 23 goals at the Mestalla in every season that he has been at the club undoubtedly attractive to Villas-Boas.
The only stumbling block, however, may prove to be the player’s asking price as with a contract until 2017, and with Valencia unlikely to have any desire to sell, Spurs may be priced out of the market.
