So it’s a done deal, this Tottenham man has apparently left White Hart Lane to pursue what has been deemed a dream move by the source below.
Spurs star Keane arrives at Anfield to complete his dream move to Liverpool
Liverpool should complete the £18million signing of Tottenham’s Robbie Keane within the next 24 hours.
It is understood the Republic of Ireland international has undergone a medical today.
If there are no problems with the tests, Keane may even be able to fly to Spain tomorrow with the Liverpool squad ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Villarreal.
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez completed the finals stages of negations with the Tottenham striker over the weekend, with the fee likely to rise to £20million with add-ons.
The full medical reports usually take 24 hours to complete, but Liverpool are believed to be confident that there will be no problems with the 28-year-old.

We have all probably seen the photos of Robbie at Melwood arriving for his medical, and apparently the deal will be done very soon. Clearly, Rafa is looking to sell some players to fund the move, but appears to have done the hard part first by stumping up the cash for the Irishman. The teaming up of Keane and Torres could really work wonders, and this could signal the completion of additions to the Anfield squad, give or take maybe one wide player. How do Liverpool fans feel about their soon-to-be-new signing?
