Tottenham are reported to have made an improved offer for Liverpool striker Robbie Keane.

Keane is now believed to be travelling to London, with speculation growing that his brief career on Merseyside could be coming to an end.

Spurs’ latest bid for the Republic of Ireland international, who only left White Hart Lane for Anfield in an £18million deal in the summer, is a cash-only offer.

One possible knock-on effect to any deal for Keane would impact on the future of Real Madrid striker Javier Saviola.

The Argentina international, who was previously interesting Portsmouth, had been linked with a loan move to White Hart Lane, but that deal will be stopped if Keane signs.

Saviola, who is not wanted by the Spanish outfit, could then find himself heading to Anfield to strengthen Rafa Benitez’s striking options.
