In 2017, Soler finished third overall behind team mate Alejandro Valverde and Alberto Contador in the Volta a Catalunya, winning the young rider's classification. Later that year was named in the startlist for the 2017 Vuelta a España.
In March 2018, he won the Paris–Nice stage race. Having started the final stage 37 seconds down on race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton–Scott) in sixth place overall, Soler attacked around halfway into the stage along with compatriot David de la Cruz (Team Sky); the duo joined Omar Fraile (Astana) at the head of the race, and the trio managed to stay clear of the rest of the field by the time they reached Nice. As de la Cruz and Fraile contested stage honours, Soler finished third – acquiring four bonus seconds on the finish in addition to three gained at an earlier intermediate sprint – and with a 35-second gap to Yates and the remaining general classification contenders, it was enough to give Soler victory over Yates by four seconds.
