Report: Botafogo readying January bid for Internacional forward Diego Forlán
Botafogo are interested in signing Internacional forward Diego Forlán, according to local reports.
Uol suggests the Rio de Janeiro-based club are hoping that the opportunity to play in the Copa Libertadores will tempt the 34 year-old into making the switch.
The report also claims international team-mate Nicolás Lodeiro, who currently plays for Botafogo, has been tasked with trying to persuade the veteran to join him at the Estádio Olímpico João Havelange, though whether he would want to risk moving in a World Cup year remains unclear.
Forlán, who was signed on a free transfer after leaving Internazionale in June 2012, scored five goals in 15 appearances this season, as Internacional finished just two points above the drop.
