Roberto Soldado has declared that he is hoping to score in excess of 20 goals this year in the Premier League.

The 28-year-old striker managed 30 goals in all competitions for Valencia last season, before moving to White Hart Lane for £26million this summer.

Much is expected of the Spanish international who has scored six in 11 games for his country, but Soldado is quietly confident that he can manage a 20-goal haul in his debut season in the Premier League. 

And the Spaniard has now been quoted in the Evening Standard, emphasising his aim for the coming campaign.

"I have tried to score (20 goals a season) and every time I have done it," he told the London-based newspaper.

"This season I am going to try my best from the first day to get back to scoring because they signed me because of this reason."

Soldado has consistently managed to net frequently in La Liga, and Spurs fans will be praying they can trust their new record-breaking forward to lead them to fourth spot, and a potential Champions League place. 

"The Premier League is a much more physically strong league than Spain. But the football is also played at a higher tempo and I think this will benefit me. I felt really good from the moment I arrived here. 

"I can't wait to start official competition now and start helping Tottenham win, which is what we all want," the striker added.
