Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that Tottenham are interested in Valencia’s Roberto Soldado, but stressed that no deal has been done.
Both Spurs and Liverpool have been reported to hold an interest in the Spain international, who enjoyed a prolific 2012-13 campaign.
The 28-year-old scored 30 goals in all competitions for Valencia in, but the Mestalla outfit still missed out on UEFA Champions League football.
Villas-Boas is hopeful of luring Soldado to the Premier League, but suggested that an agreement is still a long way off.
“At the moment, he’s just one of the players we are interested in,” Villas-Boas said.
“It’s not a lie to anybody that we’ve been looking for a striker to strengthen our squad and to have more strength in depth. Roberto is one of the players we have been following and his career speaks for itself. He’s a great striker.
“But there isn’t a deal being struck at the moment, it’s just interest and conversations.”
