Tottenham have reportedly registered their interest in Spain internationals Roberto Soldado and David Villa, of Valencia and Barcelona respectively, as the north London club look to reinforce their goalscoring ranks in the summer transfer window.

According to The Guardian, Spurs plan to strengthen their forward options before the transfer deadline in September, and have already indicated they would be interested in signing Soldado or Villa.

Spurs have made their interest known in the players, who are both currently on international duty at the Confederations Cup, although it would appear unlikely that both would move to White Hart Lane.

Soldado, 28, scored 30 goals in all competitions for Valencia last season and has also netted in each of his last two international outings, with his recent fine form ensuring he has been preferred as a Spain starter to Villa.

The Barcelona forward's future has been the subject of constant speculation for a number of months, and Spurs would reportedly have to battle with Arsenal if they hope to secure the services of the 31-year-old.

Barcelona president Sandro Rosell, however, maintains no approaches for Villa have been made and has insisted the former Valencia hitman is not available for transfer.

Spurs, meanwhile, have also been credited with interest in Brazil international Leandro Damiao, who was reported to have been the subject of an offer from the club during the January transfer window.
