Milan target Soldado to replace Balotelli

Italian giants AC Milan are set to make an approach for Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado as they seek to fill the hole left by Mario Balotelli’s high profile move to Liverpool, according to The Daily Mail.

Roberto Soldado

Balotelli is due to complete his switch from Italy to Anfield for a reported £16 million, meaning the Rossoneri would be likely to seek a replacement to lead their attack in the new Serie A season.

Rumours have now emerged claiming that their preferred target is Spanish international Soldado.

Valencia-born Soldado began his career with Real Madrid, and after spells with Osasuna and Getafe, joined his hometown club in 2010. His impressive goalscoring ratio with Valencia (including 30 goals in 46 games in all competitions in his final season) persuaded Tottenham to shell out a club record £26 million for his services in August 2013.

However, he registered just six Premier League goals in a largely disappointing first season in north London. Despite scoring one and creating the other goal in Spurs’ 2-1 win in Cyprus against AEL Limassol in this week’s Europa League qualifying round first leg, speculation is mounting that he may be set to exit White Hart Lane before the transfer window closes.

Should Soldado make the move to Milan, it is reported that Tottenham may seek to capture Queens Park Rangers’ in-demand French striker Loic Remy as a replacement. Spurs and QPR come face-to-face at White Hart Lance on Sunday.

I don't know what's wrong with milan, yesterday they claimed that either javier hanandez, douglas costa and porto's martinez as good replacement of mario but i don't know why today they approach on Torres, falcao, and now soldado..... This is totally nonsense... Go and find a good attacker like andriy Shevchenko. :-P
