Tottenham looking to sell Soldado in January

Roberto Soldado could be set to leave Tottenham in January, with Atletico Madrid and Inter both set to revive their interest, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Spanish champions and the Italian side made enquiries in the summer about Soldado’s availability, but no formal offer was made, with Tottenham only willing to sell if they were able to find a replacement.

Despite showing prolific scoring form while at Valencia, Soldado has struggled to replicate that throughout his time at White Hart Lane, which began in the summer of 2013 when he arrived for £26m.

He has scored just six Premier League goals, with four of them coming from the penalty spot. In all competitions he has netted just 12 times in 40 appearances, and as a result he has fallen behind Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane in the pecking order. He has made just one start so far this season – against AEL Limassol in Europa League qualifying.

Leaving in January will mean that he must take a pay cut, but Soldado will be open to a move as it will give him a chance of gaining regular football.
