Report: Borussia Dortmund join the race for Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado

Roberto Soldado

The Bundesliga side are keen on signing the Spaniard this summer, according to reports.

It would seem that Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to sell Spanish striker flop Roberto Soldado this summer.

The club want to get as much money for a player who has failed to score the goals expected of him after arriving from Valencia in the summer of 2013.

It has been reported that Sevilla are the favourites to sign the player, as a replacement for Carlos Bacca, however reports are suggesting that German side Borussia Dortmund are also keen on the player.

AS are reporting that the Bundesliga outfit are keen to bring in the striker, who they feel will be able to grab the goals in German football.

If Dortmund make the right offer for Soldado there is little doubt that Tottenham would be keen on a sale.

Soldado arrived at Spurs for a fee reported by Sky Sports to have been in the region of £26 million.

That fee certainly seemed justified when you considered his scoring record. He had netted 30 goals in 46 games for Valencia in the 2012-13 campaign, scoring 81 goals in 141 games in total for the club.

However, in his two seasons at Spurs, he has struggled for form in English football. He has scored just 16 goals in 76 games – the majority of which have been from the penalty spot – so there is little doubt that Tottenham are right to pursue a sale.
