While one name continues to dominate the headlines the proposed deal to bring Roberto Soldado to White Hart Lane has almost been pushed to one side but hopefully something will be agreed and we’ll get some positive news on this from the club shortly.
In the meantime, Jermain Defoe believes that the Spaniard’s arrival could be the one that takes Spurs to the next level.
“I can see why Spurs fans would be excited about Soldado coming because I am excited myself about the prospect of playing with him,” Defoe is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror. “He is a fantastic striker – sharp around the box and hungry to score goals.”
Rather than feeling threatened by the potential new arrival, Defoe is looking forward to the prospect of linking up with Soldado.
“For me, it’s not a case of thinking, ‘A top-class forward is coming in, maybe I’m not going to play.’ At the end of the day, I work hard and look after myself, so that I can give myself the best chance of bringing goals to the team,” JD added.
“A guy like Soldado can only strengthen us. Maybe if we’d had him last season as well as Emmanuel Adebayor we would already be in the Champions League. He’s a goalscorer.”
Would you pair Defoe and Soldado up front or do you think the club should bring in another forward – assuming of course that the Spaniard does complete the deal?
