Hammers eye surprise swoop former Liverpool striker

Published Add your comment

West Ham are being linked with a move for Tottenham striker Robbie Keane.

The former Liverpool marksman is struggling for first team action at White Hart Lane and, although Harry Redknapp has stated he has no intention of letting the Irishman leave, Metro reports that he is willing to listen to offers for the 30-year-old.

Avram Grant has made no secret of his desire to add another goalscorer to his squad with the Hammers looking painfully short of a composed finisher in their three outings so far this season, and Keane could provide the added confidence around the penalty area they so crave.

However, despite these struggles in the early stages of the campaign, Grant remains confident that his team will soon show its worth.

"We need to work on our finishing. We need to be calmer in the box as against Bolton last Saturday we also created a lot of chances and didn't score," he said.

"The players were fighting against relegation last year so there are some psychology problems and we need to adapt also to the way we play football. We are developing.

"Of course it will take time and be step by step but the main thing is to progress."

Metro also claims that Spurs defender Alan Hutton could be on his way to Upton Park, as Grant looks to bolster his full-back options.

But their London rivals are believed to be keen to recoup most of the £9 million they paid for the Scotland international in 2008; which could scupper any potential deal.
