Nottingham Forest eye Tottenham Hotspur striker

Published

on

New Nottingham Forest manager Steve McClaren is very interested in signing Tottenham striker Robbie Keane, sources have claimed. McClaren, appointed Forest manager last month, could be keen on the experienced forward to help fire the club into the Premier League next season.

However, Forest may face huge competition from several clubs if rumours are to be believed. Tottenham are open to offers for the Republic of Ireland striker and many Premier League clubs have been linked with Keane, including Sunderland and Blackburn.

And if Forest do miss out on their man, Blackburn are rumoured to be in pole position to land the Tottenham striker due to their guarantee of first-team football.

It is not known whether Keane, who turned 31 earlier this month, is interested in taking the step down to a lower tier of English football after playing in England’s top league for most of his career. It is also unlikely that the striker would be interested in taking a pay-cut, something a move to Forest would have to include.

Meanwhile, Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni is believed to have urged Keane to move away from Tottenham in favour of West Brom. Roy Hodgson is the latest of a long line of Premier League managers interested in signing Keane after Steve Bruce and Steve Kean are rumoured to be interested. It is not known, though, whether Keane will follow his national manager’s advice.
