Corinthians football chief Edu Gaspar has confirmed they're chasing Inter Milan striker Diego Forlan.

The Uruguay international has endured a horror season in Italy and Edu believes they can tempt Forlan back to South America.

"Yes, we want Forlan," Edu told TMW. "However, we know his value and we know that for the Brazilian championship he would be a luxury, so we do not believe in this much.

"But I love Forlan and I hope a deal can be done."
