He spent his early career with Espanyol and Barcelona, mostly with the respective reserve teams. In January 2012 he moved to Red Bull Salzburg, where he won league and cup doubles in 2012 and 2014, also finishing as the Austrian Football Bundesliga's top scorer in the latter season with 31 goals in 28 games.
Born in El Pont de Vilomara i Rocafort, Barcelona, Catalonia, Soriano emerged through RCD Espanyol's youth ranks. He made his debut with the first team during the 2002–03 season, playing one minute in a 3–1 La Liga home win against Rayo Vallecano while still registered with the B-side; he was not admitted as a full-time member of the main squad until 2005–06.
Soriano spent the second halves of that and the following campaigns serving second division loan stints, after which he returned to the Pericos, scoring twice in 24 appearances during the season, incidentally in both 1–0 wins over Getafe CF.
In late January 2009 Soriano moved again on loan (and in the second level), joining Albacete Balompié until the end of the campaign and being released by Espanyol after this spell, his contract not having been renewed.
On 30 July 2009, Soriano joined FC Barcelona's reserves, in division three. He made his official first-team debut on 28 October 2009, playing the dying minutes of the 2–0 triumph at Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa for the Copa del Rey (7–0 on aggregate); in the league, he ranked amongst the season's top scorers – all four groups combined – as the club returned to the second division after an 11-year absence.
Red Bull Salzburg
In the summer of 2013, Soriano was appointed Red Bull's new captain. He scored a hat-trick in their UEFA Europa League play-off first leg against VMFD Žalgiris Vilnius, a 5–0 win on 22 August. In his team's first match in the group stage, on 19 September, he added another three to help to a 4–0 home success over IF Elfsborg; in the round-of-32, he grabbed a brace in a 2–0 win at AFC Ajax.
On 10 August 2014, Soriano scored five goals in an 8–0 home league win against SV Grödig. On 6 November, he netted a hat-trick as Salzburg won 5–1 at GNK Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League group stage. He extended his contract in January of the following year until June 2018 or 2019, and at the end of the season was voted the league's Player of the Year. In the cup final, he scored an extra-time goal in a 2–0 triumph over FK Austria Wien.
On 26 September 2015, Soriano scored four goals in a 4–2 home win against SV Mattersburg. On 24 October he netted his 100th league goal, helping to a 2–1 success over SV Ried also at the Red Bull GmbH.
