Valencia have dropped their interest in Norwich target Fabio Quagliarella after verbally agreeing a deal for Helder Postiga instead.
Postiga, 31, had always been the Spanish club's top target but they looked at other options when negotiations with the Portuguese striker's club Real Zaragoza reached an impasse.
However, the two clubs eventually agreed a deal over the phone on Monday that will see the ex-Tottenham forward replace Roberto Soldado in their line-up for a fee of 3million euros plus add-on clauses.
Norwich remain at the forefront of the Quagliarella chase with Juventus widely expected to allow two of their current strikeforce to go before the end of the transfer window.
The 30-year-old striker scored nine Serie A goals last season but only once completed 90 minutes in the league and could be ready to leave Turin in search of regular first-team football.
