According to a report in The Daily Star, Reading are lining up a move for free agent Robbie Keane.
Robbie Keane has been available since leaving MLS side LA Galaxy recently and has said he is looking for one more challenge in his career before he hangs up his boots.
It is well documented that Reading need a striker, especially after losing veteran Frenchman Yann Kermorgant to injury, and Robbie Keane would be an immediate fix as he can come in before January.
The 36-year-old has had an illustrious career which includes 126 Premier League goals and 68 international goals for his native country, the Republic of Ireland.
He has hit 68 in 146 for the Irish national side.
Keane started his career at Wolves before moving to then-Premier League side Coventry City in what was then a record transfer fee for a teenager.
After a season with Coventry and a season with Inter Milan, Keane really started making a name for himself with Leeds United before enjoying six successful years as a Tottenham striker.
The Dubliner had a second spell at Spurs, as well as playing for Liverpool, Celtic, West Ham and Aston Villa during his successful career.
After five prolific years as captain of LA Galaxy – in which he scored well over a goal every other game – Keane is now being linked with a move to Reading but they face competition from Brisbane Roar, who are managed by Keane’s former teammate at Coventry, John Aloisi.
