Former Manchester United striker being lined up by Premier League trio

Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan is being lined up for a Premier League return with Hull City, West Bromwich Albion, and Stoke City all considering a move, the Daily Star reports.

The 35-year-old is currently playing in Japan for Cerezo Osaka, but with his current deal set to expire in the summer, the Uruguayan international is said to be open to a new challenge.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis is looking to reinforce his frontline while Hull boss Steve Bruce will be hoping to do the same as the pair aim to avoid relegation.

Stoke’s Mark Hughes may also need to add another attacker to his team due to the huge injury blow to in-form Bojan, who will miss the rest of the campaign after damaging his knee ligaments in the 4-1 FA Cup victory over Rochdale.

Forlan’s goal-scoring record during his time at Argentine side Independiente attracted the Red Devils back in 2002, but he failed to live up to expectations as he was sold two years later before rediscovering his form for Atletico Madrid in La Liga.
