Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan.

Forlan is keen to make up for his poor spell in ­England when he failed to make any ­impression at Manchester United. But Spurs will ­struggle to match his wages.

Redknapp said: "I like the look of the Uruguayans. Forlan would have another two or three good years in our League, but his wages may be a problem."
