Inter ask Tottenham for Soldado in exchange for Guarin
Inter have told Tottenham that they would like £10m plus striker Roberto Soldado for them to allow midfielder Fredy Guarin move to White Hart Lane, according to Talksport.
Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly turned his attention to trying to sign Guarin after completing the signing of attacking right-back DeAndre Yedlin from Seattle Sounders on Wednesday. The Colombian, who appeared sporadically at the World Cup, scored four goals in 31 league appearances last season, his second year at the San Siro.
The Italian club initially wanted a straight cash offer of £14m to convince to part with Guarin, who has also attracted interest from Chelsea and Manchester United. However, they have now decided that they want Soldado as part of the deal, and have lowered the asking price.
Due to their lack of striking options, Spurs are unlikely to be keen on the proposal, with Pochettino reportedly intent on getting the best of the Spaniard after he struggled in his first season in England.
Signed for £26m last summer, Soldado managed to score just six Premier League goals, a number of which came from the penalty spot. As a result, he has been linked with a return to La Liga, with champions Atletico Madrid holding an interest.
