Ex-Man United star Diego Forlan could soon be plying his trade for West Brom, according to the Express and Star.
The striker, who is currently playing for Japanese side Cerezo Osaka, has been offered to West Brom and Tony Pulis is believed to be considering making a bid. He has also been offered to Hull and West Ham but it is the Baggies who are most interested in giving the Uruguay international a return to the Premier League.
Forlan has previously played in England for Manchester United but he struggled at Old Trafford and was then sold to Villareal, where he thrived. He played some of his best football for the La Liga side before making the move to Atletico Madrid and enjoying another successful spell there.
He has also enjoyed a superb international career for Uruguay, which resulted in him being given the 2010 World Cup Golden Ball. Tony Pulis may be interested in signing the striker considering he had originally planned to sign Shola Ameobi, who now looks set to join Crystal Palace.
Forlan would cost very little, considering his current deal runs out in the summer. But Pulis isn't sure about whether to make a move because the striker is entering the later stages of his career (Forlan is 35) and he could instead bid for Rickie Lambert of Liverpool.

However, Forlan has been handed to Pulis on a plate and with the Transfer Deadline getting ever closer, he could choose to take Cerezo Osaka up on their offer.
