Who is the better prospect for Tottenham? Soldado or Dzeko?

[box_light]Editors Note: This article was written before the news broke that Tottenham had agreed a deal with Valencia for Roberto Soldado.[/box_light] As the transfer window passes this summer, the stories linking players with potential new clubs have increased.

The Race for Soldado | Chance Conversion Rate Comparison

28-year-old Valencia and Spanish forward Roberto Soldado has been linked with possible moves to Premier League clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, with the former club seeming to be in pole position with a reported price tag of €30 million (the release clause in his contract).

Can Danny Rose Stake A Claim in The Spurs Side? | Rose vs Assou-Ekotto

White Hart Lane. 14th April 2010. That goal versus Arsenal. But what has the young England left back done for Tottenham Hotspur since? Well, not much, seeing as he wasn't really given a chance at left back due to the good form of Cameroonian Benoit Assou-Ekotto, or Disco Benny to the Spurs faithful.

Villas Boas' Tactics to Evolve With Paulinho | Tactical Analysis

Spurs have just paid £17m for a defensive midfield player, unsurprisingly fans are wondering whether AVB spent too much time with Jose at the Bridge. This is big money for Spurs as £17m would go along way for a quality striker. Last season Spurs fans grumbled at paying 11m for young goalkeeper Loris as they already had three goalkeepers in Brad Friedel, Carlo Cudicini and Heurelho Gomes.

Benteke - Ready for a step up? Stats compared to Lukaku & Adebayor

After an impressive debut season in the Premier League, Christian Benteke’s future at Aston Villa is uncertain after the striker submitted a transfer request with a view to a move to a bigger club, not to say that Aston Villa aren't a big club but the lure of European Football and the higher wages that these clubs can offer is what drives the players these days.
