Liverpool to complete £18 million deal for Premier League ace within days

Liverpool are to complete a £18 million move for Tottenham striker Robbie Keane within days. The Republic of Ireland international has been linked with a move to Anfield for weeks now after he admitted the chance to move to Liverpool would be too good to turn down. (Daily Telegraph)

Spurs boss Juande Ramos was keen to hold onto the 27-year old, with fellow Spurs front man Dimitar Berbatov also looking likely to leave White Hart Lane this summer. It is believed now that Keane only has to agree personal terms and a medical before completing his £18 million move to the Premier League giants.

This will inevitably force Spurs to go out and buy a new top class triker and that is likely to come in the shape of Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz. As for Liverpool, I personally think Rafa Benitez will be chuffed with this bit of business because there is no doubt Keane could well prove to be a superb strike partner to Fernando Torres.
