Spurs are still hurt by missing out on Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck after the Manchester United man opted for a summer move to The Emirates.
Spurs will again turn their attention to Christian Benteke of Aston Villa in January and Soldado will be sent packing back to Spain. Benteke was wanted by Spurs last summer but signed a new deal at Villa Park and after a few injuries has never regained his form.
Spurs are hoping that with Benteke’s dip in form that they could get the Aston Villa man for under £20m.
Unless Spurs pick up in form it will be hard to convince Benteke that joining Spurs would be much of a step up.
