Liverpool are preparing to move for Real Madrid striker Javier Saviola in the event that Robbie Keane joins Tottenham. It has been reported this morning that Keane is on his way to London to hold talks with Spurs about a possible return after just six months away from the club and it would appear that Rafa Benitez is already preparing for life without him.
Saviola, 27, has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs over the past few weeks including the likes of Portsmouth, Newcastle, West Ham and Everton, however should Liverpool come in for him, it is thought that the Argentine international will opt to move to Anfield.
The former Barcelona man has struggled for first team football at the Bernabeu since his move back in 2007, making only a handful of appearances during that time. I personally would love to see Saviola arrive in England before the transfer window shuts. Although he hasn't made much of an impact at Madrid over the past few years I feel he would be a very good addition to Benitez' squad as they bid to claim their first ever Premier League title.
