Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas confirmed he is interested in signing Roberto Soldado from Valencia.
The Spurs manager is known to be searching for a new forward as he looks to qualify for the Champions League after just missing out last year.
At the moment Villas-Boas only has Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor to call on and the Portuguese boss has been heavily linked with a move for Spanish international Soldado.
Reports suggest Spurs’ director of football Franco Baldini has travelled to Valencia to meet with the club and the player’s agent. The 28-year-old has a £28.5million release clause in his contract and Villas-Boas would need to break the club’s transfer record to bring in the former Real Madrid striker.
Liverpool are also known to be tracking the Spaniard and Villas-Boas has confirmed that Soldado is one of a number of players the club are tracking.
He said: “At the moment, he’s just one of the players we are interested in. It’s not a lie to anybody that we’ve been looking for a striker to strengthen our squad and to have more strength in depth.
“Roberto is one of the players we have been following and his career speaks for itself.
“He’s a great striker. But there isn’t a deal being struck at the moment, it’s just interest and conversations.”
