Tottenham Hotspur striker target Diego Forlan has opened the door to a potential summer move to the Barclays Premier League.

The Uruguayan international has been courted by a number of clubs across Europe, with Spurs thought to be leading the chase from England for the Atletico Madrid star.

31-year-old Forlan spent three years with Manchester United from 2001 to 2004, but has hit his prime since moving to La Liga firstly with Villarreal and now with Madrid.

However, the player has revealed he's open to a return after impressing on the international stage against Republic of Ireland last night.

"I have two years left on my contract at Atletico Madrid and I am really happy there, but you never know in football," he told SkySports after the game.

"If there was a nice offer, for the team and for me, then you have to see. You have to see if it is good enough."


Harry Redknapp is a known admirer of the player, with Tottenham Hotspur linked with a move as recently as the start of the month.

The Spurs boss was keen to add another forward to the ranks in January, and with Robbie Keane tipped to leave White Hart Lane permanently in the summer the situation is not thought to have changed.

Forlan would be an attractive option for any manager given his goals-per-game record in league football over the last six years, and Spurs have an opportunity to entice the player should they make a move in the summer.
