Report: AC Milan and Tottenham representatives meet over Roberto Soldado transfer

Roberto Soldado

AC Milan have been frequently linked to Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado and there may be some movement.

AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur representatives are reportedly due to meet today to discuss the transfer of Roberto Soldado in the January transfer window.

According to the Daily Mail, Milan are interested in ending the Spanish striker's misery at White Hart Lane and they are keen to make a deal for Soldado in the new year. 

The 29-year-old has scored just four times this season, despite Mauricio Pochettino offering him the chance to make a success of his second campaign in English football, and it seems that his patience has run out. 

Tottenham are now actively looking to sell Soldado in the transfer window, but they want to recoup some of the £26 million outlay they made to sign the Spanish international from Valencia in 2013. 

Milan are struggling to meet that asking price and remain more interested in a loan move because of their monetary problems. 

Tottenham are said to be plotting moves for a number of players in January, with a range of strikers linked. 

Spurs have needed a clinical number nine for some time now and Pochettino is aiming to address this issue at the next available opportunity. 

If he does bring in a striker, Soldado is likely to slip even further down the pecking order and, as a high earner, Spurs would like to move him on. 

A loan move could be a possibility, therefore, late in the window, but any agreement between them and AC Milan - at this present stage - is said to be a long way off.
