While Tottenham’s Gareth Bale dominates the headlines with a potential move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, Roberto Soldado arrival seems imminent to White Hart Lane.

The 28-year-old has a £26 million release clause and Valencia have maintained that he would only be sold if that figure was met.

But negotiations between the clubs have been progressive and the finer details have yet to be confirmed, although BBC Sport claims Spurs are confident of landing their man.

The Spaniard has scored 30 goals in 46 appearances in La Liga this season and netted 81 goals in 141 games since joining Valencia in the 2010.

He has also scored six goals in his 11 appearances at international level but is in the shadow of David Villa, Fernando Torres and Fernando Llorente.

The Spanish international is set to become Andre-Villas Boas’ third summer signing along with midfielder Paulinho and winger Nacer Chadli.

The signing of Soldado will strengthen Villas Boas’ attacking options who had only two experienced strikers to choose from last season – Jermaine Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor.

The north London club had previously been linked with Belgian striker Christian Benteke, who impressed in his debut season in England, before deciding to sign a new contract with Aston Villa.
