Tottenham have been linked with summer bids for two Spanish strikers this week and both names have featured in previous transfer rumours. However, one player is considerably more prolific than the other so who are Spurs more likely to end up with?
Roberto Soldado is the first name on the list and depending on which report you read, the fee involved varies between £20m and £30m. However, due to Valencia’s much publicised financial issues, it’s thought that Spurs are trying to land their target ‘on the cheap’.
Soldado has 47 goals in 88 league games for his current club and his ratio has improved since his last move back in 2010.
The same can’t be said about Adrian Lopez who is an alleged forward, currently playing at Atletico Madrid. The player’s record in the capital is poor with ten strikes in 53 league games but it’s been said that he has improved tremendously since playing with Radamel Falcao.
Alternatively, you could argue that playing with Falcao could make Andy Booth look like Jimmy Greaves.
It seems almost certain that Spurs will be in the market for a striker this summer but are either of these players likely targets?
