Spurs consider new approach for free-scoring strike star - reports

Tottenham will reportedly make a renewed approach for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan in the summer.

The north London club were known to have been tracking the 31-year-old during the January transfer window but ultimately failed to strike a deal with Atleti.

Spurs were monitoring the Uruguay international with great interest, and Harry Redknapp attended Atletico's Copa Del Rey quarter-final against Real Madrid in January to run the rule over the forward.

However, whilst admitting an interest in the player, the Tottenham manager claimed a deal would not represent financial sense for the White Hart Lane club.

“Diego Forlan has been mentioned but we are not going to get near their wages,” the Spurs boss said at the time.


“The chairman would not be paying £100,000 or more a week to players that is for sure.

“Forlan's an interesting player. I didn't speak to anyone about him, I just went and watched the game really.”

But, according to talkSPORT, Spurs will reignite their interest in the former Manchester United man as they look to add an experienced goalscorer to their ranks at the end of the season.
