Tottenham boss Juande Ramos is chasing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan.

The People says Spurs have already made an £18 million offer for the ex-Manchester United forward.

The initial offer was rejected by Forlan's club Atletico Madrid on Thursday but Ramos remains determined to sign the Uruguayan.

Forlan said: "I am pleased that I am still recognised in England, but now my challenge and dream is with Atletico in the Champions League.

"I have an excellent opinion of Juande Ramos, but I am not interested in leaving."
