Liverpool To Rescue Javier Saviola From Real Madrid

Reports in the English press declare that Liverpool will attempt to sign Javier Saviola on-loan from Real Madrid, most probably as a temporary replacement for Robbie Keane.

Word has it that the Anfield giants have agreed to sell Keane, who joined from Tottenham Hotspur in a big-money move only last year, back to the Lilywhites.

That would leave a noticeable hole in Rafael Benitez's forward line - or an empty space on the bench, at least - and the Spanish tactician supposedly wants Saviola to fill the void for the time being.

The Argentine striker has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs this winter, as he has become openly frustrated with his lack of first-team opportunities at the Bernabeu.

Portsmouth were favourites to sign the former Barcelona star, but instead opted for Greek international Theofanis Gekas, while Everton's reported interest has amounted to nothing as yet.

It is uncertain whether Saviola would fancy a move to Liverpool, as his need for playing time may outweigh the allure of joining another one of Europe's powerhouse clubs.
