There have been many rumours of a move for Robbie Keane during this transfer window and over the weekend, Bolton Wanderers became the latest club to be linked with our Republic of Ireland striker.
Robbie is one of the club’s all time leading scorers and he performed consistently before leaving for Liverpool back in 2008. Since his return a year later he has never made the same impact and after two loan spells, he looks set to be on his way.
Keane will be 31 later this week and he remains a prolific scorer at International level but his performances for West Ham last campaign may have been more telling. However, there is no shortage of premier clubs potentially showing an interest who believe that he still has something to offer at this level.
With that in mind, is there any value in keeping Robbie at the Lane? Could he still perform as a fourth striker if he were given more opportunities or is this really the end of the club’s relationship with the player?
