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

An early two-goal lead proved to be too much for Tottenham as they lose to Crystal Palace and exit the FA Cup.
After Tottenham's FA Cup exit, Craig Burley accuses Gab Marcotti of making excuses every time something goes wrong for Spurs or Mauricio Pochettino.

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.
