Tottenham Hotspur target Radamel Falcao has revealed he is keen on a move to Atletico Madrid according to talkSPORT.
The 25-year-old Colombian striker, who has a minimum fee release clause of £42million, has attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe, with the La Liga outfit the latest side believed to be preparing a bid.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is still looking for his first major acquisition of the transfer window - and has pinpointed Falcao as the man to bring more goals to White Hart Lane in 2011-12.
With Atletico looking to fill the hole left by the £38million sale of Sergio Aguero to Manchester City - the club are willing to use some of that money in order to bring Falcao to Spain.
Their interest, twinned with the player's preference of a move to the Spanish capital will come as a bitter blow to Redknapp and Tottenham, after Falcao confirmed:
"Atletico are a great team with great support and it would be a great opportunity for my career.
"Obviously all players think about going to play in England, Spain or Italy - anyone who says they don't is lying.
"I'm honest, my parents taught me that, and I would like to go and play in one of these leagues."
One Spurs striker heading in the opposite direction is Robbie Keane who left Tottenham for a fresh start in the MLS with LA Galaxy, where he will link up with the likes of David Beckham in the USA in a deal worth around £3.5million.
