Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a £26million deal with Valencia to sign Roberto Soldado, according to a report in Spain.

Soldado still has to agree personal terms and undergo a medical, but the outlook appears very positive that Tottenham have finally secured a deal to sign their elusive striker.

    I think Levy would still like to unload Ade. If that is the case I can see him trying to get a deal for Remy or Lopez.

    This transfer will only be completed when the Club announces it on its official website. After the tapping-up attempts on Gareth Bale, by Marca and Real Madrid, I never believe anything reported by the Spanish press. Having said that, even if this transfer goes ahead, I suspect our business in the market is far from concluded. It is well-known that the Club is seeking two strikers, a playmaker and, possibly, a left back. In addition, AVB may rethink his policy of going into the season with only 4 recognized centre backs, in light of the injury sustained by Jan Vertonghen.

      As an Arsenal fan I am really starting to get pissed off. Wenger knows the fans are getting restless so I do not understand why he des not make some kind of signing. This signing does not scare me too much because the price is much too high. Wenger needs to sign someone even if they are not at the top of his wish list to appease the fans. Jovetic Negredo and Higuain all went for similar prices so this is not a bargain for spurs. This was one of their few option because they cannot offer CL play.

  3. Guy says:

    Is Tottenham’s businesss complete? Of course not. Bale will be going to ………. for 100 million pounds! :-)

  4. Garry Craske says:

    Just a left back to go and nailed on CL place come May.

  5. gbewing says:

    EPL getting interesting isn’t it- I would like some cover at both backs -I am higher on BAE than most thinking injury had much to do with his slide, the year before he was excellent, D Rose hasn’t made me feel he’s the replacement and Naughton doesn’t distinguish either. I’d also like to adda young GK- overall we are now in selling and loaning mode-

    I don’t see a need for another striker with our formation and how we use Bale, don’t see a need for a CB- we have 4 strong ones, assuming Parker is moved would consider cover for Sandro

  6. Nelson says:

    Won’t believe it until he’s wearing the shirt. I see mainly off loading from here on out after a striker is signed. If he does sign, we’ll see if he’s worth 26 million. Certainly can’t be worse than Ade and Defoe.

  7. RJ says:

    I love Baines.

  8. ginger24spices says:

    massive boost for d team n hope its sends a clear sense of ambition n competitiveness in d spines of or rivals

  9. Hernandez says:

    Its a good addition †o premier league but I thought at this point Bale should be allow to join Real Madrid ……….Mr wenger should go to hell for his stupid transfer policy .6ans almost hate the club due to their ways …..guuuuuusssssssh!!!
