Roberto Soldado, although a little older than many of his peers, is a goalscoring machine, bagging many goals for Spain and former club Valencia. So far this season for new club Tottenham he has scored in both the Europa League and the Premier League. So, does he have what it takes to be a legend for Spurs?
Last season, we saw a lack of goals between Jermaine Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor, meaning that a lot of pressure was left on other team members, especially Gareth Bale, to score the goals. However, I believe Soldado can make up for that and we have already seen him start to do so already.
The reason I think he can make such an impact on Spurs is because of his capability and strength in front of goal. So, if Spurs' other players can provide him with chances, don't be surprised to see him net the ball time and time again.
Last season, Soldado scored 29 goals for Valencia, more than even Bale scored, and he also contributed a few goals for Spain, who were eventually runners up in the Confederations Cup.
This season, with Spurs' team (in my view) possibly the best it has ever been, Soldado has been given the prime opportunity to be the main forward, and judging by the way he has handled big jobs like this in the past, I believe he will be phenomenal for Spurs.
Overall, Soldado is looking very likely to be one of the best strikers in the Premier League.
