English premier league side Tottenham have agreed a fee of £26million with Spanish club, Valencia for Roberto Soldado.
Soldado will have a medical before putting the finishing touches on the move to White Hart Lane.
The signing will smash Spurs' transfer record, which was the £17m they paid Corinthians for Brazil midfielder Paulinho earlier in the summer.
Tottenham tweeted on Thursday morning: 'We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Valencia for the transfer of Roberto Soldado subject to medical.'
Soldado last season scored 30 goals in 46 games for Valencia, mainly playing as a lone striker.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas' preference is for a 4-3-3 system and it is as a centre forward, ahead of Jermain Defoe or Emmanuel Adebayor, that he is likely to appear.
As Spurs' own transfer record is broken, they are poised to net a word record £87m fee for Gareth Bale with Real Madrid convinced they have done enough to lure the Wales winger to Spain.
