Roberto Soldado has admitted he would be interested in a potential move to the Bundesliga or Premier League.

The Valencia striker has been one of Spain’s most prolific finishers in recent years, with the 27-year-old scoring 24 goals in 36 top-flight appearances.

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the Spain international as Andre Villas-Boas looks to bolster his attacking options at White Hart Lane.

And Soldado, who is set to feature at the Confederations Cup this month, hinted he would be open to a move to England.

“I’m not closing the doors to anyone,” said Soldado.

“I know that some of my Spain team-mates have left Spain and done very well.

“The Premier League and the Bundesliga are very attractive leagues for any player because of the atmosphere and reputation of these countries.”

Soldado also admitted he was disappointed to see former manager Ernesto Valverde leave Valencia after he was replaced by Miroslav Djukic.

“It’s a shame, he resuscitated the team,” he added.

“We were lifeless when he arrived, we were not delivering on the pitch and when he came he delivered a radical change. He had a very positive impact, despite the fact we couldn’t achieve our objectives.”
