In the past couple of weeks, a few outlets have been claiming that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Carlos Soler from Valencia.
One of them is Calcio Mercato, who says Spurs are planning to get the Spaniard as their first big signing after such a long time without an addition to the squad.
Now Spanish outlet Deporte Valenciano is covering it, crediting the info to the Italian outlet, but their take may be a sign that nothing has happened just yet.
After reporting what has been said, and saying ‘it seems Tottenham are willing to submit a large offer’, Deporte Valenciano make it clear that club sources ‘know nothing’ about a financial offer for the player so far.
They write that Soler isn’t having great form at Valencia, and that’s the reason he’s being so criticised, since he was pretty good at the end of last season and is now being blamed for not being that decisive player.
Still, it’s said that Soler is ‘much valued’ by the club, who are happy to have protected him with a €80m release clause.
Tottenham interest in the 22 year old wouldn’t be a huge shock, but it seems that sources at Valencia haven’t heard anything yet.
