Report: Tottenham consider offering Soldado in exchange for Sevilla's Carlos Bacca

Roberto Soldado

Tottenham have been linked with a move to sign Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca.

It's little surprise that Tottenham continue to be linked with moves to sign strikers during this month's transfer window.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino will be delighted with the emergence of Harry Kane as a regular goalscorer for the club, but Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado have offered little throughout the campaign.

The likes of Saido Berahino (West Brom), Danny Ings (Burnley) and now Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette have all been linked with the club in recent weeks, but new reports suggest a move for Sevilla's Carlos Bacca could be on the cards.

Bacca, 28, is something of a late bloomer having only moved to Europe in 2011, but hit 31 goals in 54 games for Belgian side Club Brugge, he earned a €7m move to Sevilla in 2013, replacing Alvaro Negredo, who signed for Manchester City.

His record for the La Liga club now stands at 32 goals in 75 games, and despite playing a bit-part role for Colombia at the 2014 World Cup, Bacca is still considered to be one of the top strikers in Europe right now.

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Tottenham have been scouting Bacca with a view to a move in the coming weeks - and could have an ace up their sleeve in their pursuit.

The Mirror speculate that Spurs are willing to offer up Roberto Soldado in exchange for Bacca, with the Spaniard still struggling to make an impact in the Premier League.

The former Valencia striker has yet to live up to his £26m price tag, and may be willing to head back to Spain having enjoyed so much success in La Liga previously.
