Report: West Ham United In Hunt For Tottenham Striker Keane

Another short stay for Robbo?
West Ham United have made no secret this week of their desire to sign a striker this month, and are now monitoring Tottenham Hotspur's Robbie Keane, according to a report from The Daily Express.

New Hammers owners David Sullivan and David Gold have said they will help manager Gianfranco Zola reinforce his squad and have identified the forward positions as a priority.

Keane has been linked with clutch of clubs over the last month, with Celtic, Sunderland and Aston Villa amongst the names believed to be interested in taking the Republic of Ireland striker away from White Hart Lane.

Although the report claims that the Hammers have had an initial loan enquiry for the player rejected, Gold and Sullivan have apparently made an £8 million transfer kitty available to Zola.

Monca's Eidur Gudjohnsen and Benni McCarthy of Blackburn are also believed to be on the Hammers list of possible targets, whilst they are also interested in bringing a centre-back to Upton Park.
