Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed he wants to sign Tottenham striker Robbie Keane.
Keane has been targeted by a host of clubs after Spurs announced that they were willing to offload him next month.
He began his career at Wolves and McCarthy would love to lure him back to Molineux but admits persuading him to join their battle to avoid relegation will be a tough sell.
McCarthy, who handed Keane his international debut for the Republic of Ireland, said: “He is a fabulous player.
“But would he want to come to us? Can we afford the deal? Is it attractive?
“Robbie has been a top player and whether a relegation scrap at Wolves is something he would fancy, I don’t know.
“There are a lot of factors that need to be looked at. It is not just a question of whether I just want someone.
“We will keep looking at players and the ones that we can get, if they are available, we will do it.” (Daily Mirror)
Robbie Keane appears to have no future at White Hart Lane and at 30 years of age the Irish international can not afford to spend large chunks of the season bench warming and therefore surely any offer of regular first team football will be considered by the Dublin born striker.
A move back to where it all started will surely tempt Keane who had two break out seasons at Molineux that secured a move to Coventry which then started the ball rolling on a career that has seen more highs than lows.
Mick McCarthy would clearly love to bring in a player of Keane’s calibre as they look to steer themselves away from the drop zone, the fact that Wolves have managed just 19 goals all season would make a move for a proven goalscorer all that more crucial.
