La Liga striker heading For Anfield?

There is still a month and a half to go before the summer transfer window opens, however Premier League clubs are already beginning to be linked with big money moves.

Today sees Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan being strongly linked with a move back to England, with Liverpool apparently after him. The 29-year old had an unsuccessful spell at Liverpool's fierce rivals Manchester United several years ago, however since then he has proved to be a massive hit in La Liga.

Since his move to Villarreal back in 2004, Forlan has scored a phenomenal 111 goals in all competitions, which has caught the eye of several managers across Europe including Rafa Benitez.

Forlan's agent, Daniel Bolotnikoff had this to say about Forlan's future earlier this year : 'I have received calls from big European clubs requesting information about the situation, but I am not authorised to give their names."

I think given the chance Forlan would jump at the chance to return to the Premier League. There is no denying that he was utter crap during his first spell here, however over the past four or five years he has matured to become one of the best strikers in Europe. I would be extremley surprised if Liverpool were the only club chasing him when the window opens on July 1st.
