Spurs set to offload Soldado

The Mirror understands that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sell Roberto Soldado, with Sevilla the front runners in the race to secure his services.

The Spain international moved to White Hart Lane in the summer of 2013, but has failed to recreate the form that earned him his big money move to England’s top flight.

In seventy-six appearances in all competitions for the North London club, the thirty year old has scored just sixteen goals, while he had a ratio of at least one in two for both of his previous clubs.

His record for his country is also impressive, with the former Valencia man hitting seven goals in twelve outings, though he was not part Spain’s all conquering squads for either the 2008 and 2012 European Championships or the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Sevilla now look set to wrap up an £11m deal for the striker – £15m less than Spurs laid out for him just two years ago.
