Tottenham are prepared to sell Robbie Keane to finance a bid to bring in a new striker, according to the Evening Standard.

Keane, 30, fell out of favour last term and was loaned to Celtic after being consigned to the substitute's bench. Spurs are now prepared to sell their ex-skipper, with West Ham United and Aston Villa leading the chase.

Any fee received for the Republic of Ireland international is expected to be used in a fresh bid for Sevilla centre forward Luis Fabiano. The Brazil World Cup 2010 star is still understood to be on Redknapp's shopping list despite him being cup tied for the Champions League.
