Rafa isn’t a man who normally takes no for an answer, take note Mr O’Neill, and now it appears that Tottenham are attempting to scare the Liverpool boss away from their excellent goalscorer.
The biggest shock of the summer for Tottenham has to be Liverpool’s declaration of interest in Robbie Keane. The Ireland international could well be tempted by the prospect of Champions League football having been loyal to the club for a number of years, but Chairman Daniel Levy will be hoping a valuation of around £20 million will keep the Merseyside club from submitting a formal offer.

There are few that are more consistent in the top tier of English football than Robbie Keane. A player who never quite gets the plaudits he deserves, other than at White Hart Lane of course. Juande Ramos will surely not want to lose both his top strikers this summer, and he will fight to keep the Irishman, but can Benitez persuade him to leave Tottenham? The fee doesn’t look large enough to scare away potential suitors, as in today’s market, the 28-year-old Dublin-born striker is worth a great deal!
