Tottenham closing in on £25m Spain star

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to announce the signing of Valencia striker Roberto Soldado within the next 48 hours, according to the Mail Online.

It is believed that all that is left to finalise in the deal is the personal terms between the player and Spurs and also the player's medical, which should take place either tomorrow or Wednesday.

The Valencia striker has a release clause in his contract, which stands at roughly £25million and it is rumoured that Andre Villas-Boas is prepared to meet that in order to finally sign a striker for the North London club.

For the majority of last season, Spurs only had one fit striker with that being either Emmanuel Adebayor or Jermain Defoe, but unfortunately for AVB, neither were fit at the same time for long periods of time.

Many of the Tottenham fans believe having just two strikers cost them in the hunt for Champions League football and with Adebayor reportedly close to signing for Turkish outfit Besiktas, the fans are urging chairman Daniel Levy to spend big in order to bring in new strikers.

Soldado interestingly turned down Tottenham last summer and chose to stay with Valencia instead, but this time around, it seems that the Spaniard is keen to join Spurs.

Tottenham's sporting director Franco Baldini has been in Valencia negotiating a deal for the 28-year-old striker and he has apparently agreed to meet the release clause in his contract after initially refusing to pay £25million.

Soldado has scored 81 goals in 141 appearances for Valencia.
