Tottenham to Make New Offer for La Liga Striker Diego Forlan: Redknapp to Make Move for Atletico Madrid Man

White Hart Lane boss continues pursuit of Uruguayan goal machine.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is set to make a fresh move for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan.
Forlan was strongly linked with a move to White Hart Lane in the January transfer window but the move never materialised.
Redknapp is desperate to sign another big name forward at the end of the season as he looks set to lose both Roman Pavlyuchenko and Robbie Keane during the summer.
Forlan has been earning rave reviews in La Liga and was one of the star performers for Uruguay at the World Cup in South Africa.


Reported financial problems at the Vicente Calderon and the likely missing out of Champions League activity may cause Atletico Madrid to sell one of their star turns and they may feel that Diego Forlan, at 31 years of age, is a player they can afford to cash in on.

The likes of Sergio Aguero and highly rated keeper David De Gea are also strongly linked with moves away from the Los Rojiblancos and one imagines that supporters may be more angered at losing either of those young stars than the loss of goal machine Diego Forlan.

The Uruguayan is of course well known in the Premier League for failing spectacularly at Man United however his success in La Liga has proven that the Montevideo born striker is a class act. The former Villarreal man has netted an incredible 155 goals in seven seasons in Spain but is this season having his worst run of form in years.

Harry Redknapp is keen to bring in new attacking options and as this source suggests, may offload Roman Pavlyuchenko and Robbie Keane. Although Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe have been very poor this season as well and neither England international is 100% safe from the chop.
