Tottenham Hotspur will likely be lining up some targets for their new head coach, Jose Mourinho, across the next two transfer windows.
While Mourinho inherited a very strong squad from Mauricio Pochettino, he will want to make his mark on the team with some of his own signings.
However, it appears that the long-term target of Carlos Soler may now be out of reach for Daniel Levy and co, as he signs a new contract at Valencia.
Back at the start of this year, ESPN claimed that Spurs were lining up a £30m bid for the player, although such an attempt never materialised.
Fast forward to March and the Mail followed up with a report stating that Spurs were still looking at Soler as a potential summer target.
However, Football Espana have now revealed that Soler has signed a new deal with Valencia until 2023, with the contract containing a whopping £127.5m buyout clause.
