Tottenham planning £30m summer move for Valencia's Carlos Soler - sources

Tottenham are planning a £30 million summer move for Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler, sources have told ESPN FC.

The London club have not signed a player for Mauricio Pochettino's squad since capturing Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain during the 2018 winter window.

But efforts are already being made to add to the squad at the end of this season, with Spain Under-21 midfielder Soler -- who scored in Valencia's 2-1 Champions League win against Manchester United at La Mestalla in December -- regularly watched by Tottenham's scouting team during this campaign.

Soler has scored two goals in 28 games in all competitions for Valencia this season, but the right-sided player has also created six assists for the club, who have overcome a slow start in La Liga to be challenging for Europa League qualification.

Paris Saint-Germain are also monitoring the 22-year-old, but sources have told ESPN FC that Spurs are the frontrunners to sign the player due to their ability to offer a greater prospect of regular football than the French champions.

Despite making most of his appearances as right-sided midfielder, Soler has also operated in a central role and defensive midfield position for Valencia this season.

And with Spurs targeting young, up-and-coming players as they prepare to move into their rebuilt White Hart Lane stadium, Soler is high on Pochettino's wanted list.
