Atletico Madrid launching bid for Tottenham striker Soldado

Atletico Madrid are chasing Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado.

The London Evening Standard says Atletico want to rescue Soldado from his Tottenham nightmare and sign the striker as a replacement for Diego Costa.

Soldado endured a miserable season after signing from Valencia last summer in a deal worth up to £26million.

He scored just six Premier League goals and neither of Tottenham's managers, Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood, could get the 29-year-old to repeat the form which saw him net 59 times in La Liga during the previous three years at Valencia.
