Metro have a story that Tottenham fans are reading rather closely today in the Football Transfer Tavern as they note that the club have been handed a deadline to make a bid for Spanish international Roberto Soldado.
It was only yesterday here in the tavern that we were discussing the links between the North London club and the Spanish hitman and it seems that Valencia are not willing to see this drag on and become a Gareth Bale-type transfer saga this summer.
Los Che have issued a warning to Andre Villas-Boas and his side and will not mess about when it comes to their preparations for the new season.
A timescale of 12 days has been handed to Daniel Levy for him to complete the £30 million transfer for the player who netted 24 times in La Liga last season and at 28 still has a few seasons at the top left in him.
Valencia are fully aware that Liverpool are also expressing an interest in the forward, especially should Luis Suarez leave for Arsenal and Brendan Rodgers is more than a little bit keen on bringing the striker to Anfield as his replacement.
AVB is determined to bring another forward in to ease the pressure on star man Bale and is also conscious of the fact that Bale could well make a last minute move, leaving him in need of a replacement should this be the case.
Will Tottenham make a solid move for Roberto Soldado before Valencia’s proposed deadline? Let us know your thoughts below.
