Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Valencia striker Roberto Soldado, Press Association Sport understands.

The north London club's need for attacking reinforcements is well documented, as is their desire to bring in the 28-year-old Spain international.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas recently confirmed an interest in Soldado, and a deal is believed to be edging ever closer.

Valencia president Amadeo Salvo last week warned Tottenham that they will have to meet the 30million euros (£26million) buy-out clause if they are to prise him away from the Mestalla.

Salvo said at the time that the Primera Division club never had any intention of selling Soldado, but now appears resigned to losing him.

"The agreement with Tottenham is total," Salvo is quoted as saying at a restaurant in La Patacona by

"A problem has arisen with the (player's) agents," he added. "(If it is resolved) he will go."

Soldado joined Valencia from Getafe three years ago and scored 24 goals in La Liga last season.
