Tottenham Hotpsur boss Harry Redknapp wants Uruguay hot-shot Diego Forlan - report

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has placed Diego Forlan on top of his summer wish-list after his impressive displays for Uruguay at World Cup 2010.

According to the Sunday Mirror, despite having England striker's Jermaine Defoe and Peter Crouch on his books, the Spurs boss is desperate to add more firepower to his ranks.

The 31-year-old former Manchester United striker, who has been one of the stars of the World Cup so far, has caught the attention of Rednkapp after scoring a brace against the hosts South Africa.

Spurs are looking to build a squad capable of competing in the Champions League next season and the Atletico Madrid forward showcased his calibre last term when he guided his side to Europa League success, scoring twice in the final against Fulham.

However, a stumbling block to any move will be the price-tag of the former Red Devil, as Atletico reportedly won't enterain a move for anything less than £12 million.
