Probably not.

Reading FC are targeting former LA Galaxy and Tottenham Hotspur striker Robbie Keane in January.

The former Republic of Ireland striker has scored 287 goals in 636 games in his entire career, with 68 of those coming in 146 international caps for his country.

The Royals face competition from the Australian side Brisbane Roar for the 36-year-old.

Well, that's what the Daily Star say anyway.

They don't reference any relevant quotes or sources. They use old Tevreden quotes about finding a striker. And this comes just two days after GetReading columnist Russell Kempson published a piece called 'Sign Robbie Keane! Why the former Liverpool and Spurs star is the man to fire Reading FC to the Premier League'.

Is this just a coincidence? Probably not.

Will Reading sign Keane? Probably not.
