Madrid's Spurs target would consider 'good offer'

Published Add your comment

Athletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan maintains he's happy at the Spanish club, but would consider a 'good offer' if it came.

The 31-year-old has been the subject of speculation linking him away from the Vicente Calderon after a match winning performance in the Europa League final and winning the Golden Ball after several stunning performances at the World Cup.

Tottenham had a bid rejected for the Uruguayan striker in the January transfer window and are rumoured to going back in for the forward this summer as they look to alter their forward line.

But Forlan said: "It would have to be a really good offer. At the moment there is none, so I didn't consider anything," said the 31-year-old.

"But at the moment, I have two years more of a contract at Athletico Madrid and it's a good team and I am happy there. You never know."


Forlan had been linked with a move to Russia earlier in the season, and while his future is yet to be settled, Tottenham appear to lead the race for the forward.

A move to Serie A could also be on the cards after Forlan said last week that he wouldn't turn down an offer to move to Italy.

Harry Redknapp is keen to bolster his attacking options as he seeks to build a squad that can not only consistently qualify for the Champions League, but also contest at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

The former Manchester United striker scored 17 goals for the club during his two and a half year spell at Old Trafford, and spell that never included a goal against suitors Tottenham.
