Tottenham to offload Soldado to Sevilla


Spurs are ready to sell the Spain international to the La Liga side

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to part ways with Spanish forward Roberto Soldado, with an £11m move to Sevilla in the pipeline. 

According to the Daily Mirror, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants £11m for the Lilywhites front-man, who has netted just seven Premier League goals since arriving from Valencia for £26m in 2013.

Should Soldado complete the move to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, it will bring to an end a fruitless two-years at a Spurs shirt for the player, who struggled for Tottenham last term, following the emergence of Harry Kane.

Sevilla – who won the Europa League last season, are willing to match Soldado’s £40,000 a-week wages after tax, in order to take him back to his homeland, in a cut-price deal.

The Andalusian-based side are in need of reinforcements, having sold top-scorer Carlos Bacca to AC Milan, and view Soldado as an ideal replacement, with their Champions League return on the horizon.

The summer sales begin at Spurs

The pending departure of the 30-year-old from White Hart Lane is part of a much wider cull at the North London club, with manager Mauricio Pochettino already selling Etienne Capoue to Premier League newcomers Watford, and Paulinho to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches is also close to completing a move to Turkish side Galatasaray, while Younes Kaboul, Benjamin Stambouli and Federico Fazio are also set to leave the club as well.

Lewis Holtby has already left to join Hamburg on a permanent basis.
