Tottenham and Valencia have reached an agreement over the transfer of Roberto Soldado, according to Valencia president Amadeo Salvo, who told local media on Wednesday the deal has been completed.
Soldado, who scored 30 goals in 46 appearances in the La Liga last season, has been strongly linked with a move to England this summer.
However, the 28-year-old will not be able to join Tottenham until a problem with his agents has been resolved, Amadeo Salvo told the daily El Mundo.
According to the Spanish media, the transfer fee will be around €30m, which forces Valencia to accept the offer, triggering a release clause in Soldado's contract.
Tottenham have already spent £17m on the Brazilian Paulinho this summer and Andre Villas-Boas looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of the 2013-14 season.
Soldado has scored 81 goals in 141 appearances for Valencia since joining the club from Getafe three years ago.
If Soldado were to join Tottenham, ex-Spurs striker Helder Postiga has been rumoured as his possible replacement. The Portuguese international netted 14 goals for Real Zaragoza last season.
