West Ham planning to sign Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan

Upton Park team West Ham United is very keen on getting former Manchester United, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid footballer Diego Forlan. West Ham’s chase of much required striking reinforcements would reportedly see Sam Allardyce making a decision to sign Uruguayan veteran Diego Forlan.

The Upton Park team has managed only 9 goals in eleven English Premier League matches and with striker Andy Carroll still out wounded, Allardyce would look to sign a forward during the January transfer window but it is not sure how successful the move would be to get Diego Forlan.

The thirty four year old star recovered from a bad spell at Manchester United to make a huge impact in Spanish La Liga with Atletico Madrid and Villarreal, but probably the scope to rectify his earlier English Premier League disaster would be a prompting factor for the lethal striker.

West Ham United managed to bring in players like Mladen Petric and Carlton Cole on free transfers following the passing of the summer transfer deadline, but the East London team still struggles for goals.

Diego Forlan has scored twenty one goals in forty two matches for Internacional. In Spain, he scored hundred and fifty five goals in 7 seasons before he went to Inter Milan. One could imagine that West Ham would offer a handsome salary to the Uruguayan player to bring him back in the top tier in the English Premier League.
