Forlan has Inter offer

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan claims he's been contacted by Italian giants Internazionale.

The Uruguayan international has been paired with the Nerazzurri as a possible replacement for Samuel Eto'o.

"Yes, it is true," the South American said. "I have received an offer from Inter. To play in Milan would be a dream."

Forlan could be signed for as little as €6m from Atletico if the latter complete a move for Porto striker Falcao.

However, Inter are not the only possibility for the former Manchester United and Villarreal centre-forward.

"My name is hot in Turkey right now," continued the 32-year-old. "I haven't had an offer from any Turkish sides, but that is a beautiful country and it'll be nice to continue my career there."

Inter, who have also been linked with Manchester City's Carlos Tevez, are set to sell Eto'o to Russian club Anzhi for €30m.
