Tottenham want £30m Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler but fans must wait until summer

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been adamant he will not add to his squad unless the right man comes along, and the stylish Spaniard fits the bill, say ESPN.

Soler,22, was being monitored by Manchester United in 2017 and pleaded with Valencia at the time to allow him to move to Old Trafford.

But his request was ignored, and now he could get his chance to move to England next season if Spurs firm up their interest.

However, Pochettino could face competition from moneybags Paris Saint-Germain.

But a move to London seems the likely option with Spurs able to offer regular game time ahead of the French champions.


Soler penned a new deal 18 months ago until 2021, with a £70million buyout clause that could prove a stumbling block during potential talks.

And Poch is planning to reshape his squad ahead of next term as his looks to bolster his midfield options following the exit of Mousa Dembele to China.

Spurs have been closely monitoring the Spanish Under-21 star all campaign and were at the Mestalla to see him score in Valencia’s 2-1 Champions League win over United in December.

His ability to operate anywhere in midfield is huge attraction for Pochettino who has not signed a player since Lucas Moura arrived from PSG a year ago.
