Keane could return to Merseyside on short-term loan deal.
Liverpool are interested in re-signing former striker Robbie Keane on loan in January, fanatix has learnt.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to evaluate all striking options available to him in January and the Northern Irishman is open to the possibility of bringing in the La Galaxy forward on a short-term deal.
Keane, 32, left Tottenham in summer 2011 to join David Beckham in the US and has become a fan favourite at the Home Depot Arena, bagging 18 goals in 31 appearances in MLS.
The US off-season coincides with the January transfer window and several top European clubs have taken advantage of the MLS stars’ desire to keep up their fitness.
Keane’s teammate London Donovan has twice enjoyed loan spells at Everton, while last year Beckham trained with Spurs but did not receive clearance to play.
Keane joined Villa on loan last season and impressed, scoring three times in just six league games and the Villains could challenge Liverpool for his signature in the new year.
The Ireland international spent just six-months at Anfield under then-boss Rafa Benitez and struggled, netting just five league goals in around 20 appearances.
The former Inter Milan and Leeds striker is open to a return to the Premier League and would jump at the chance to return to Anfield, however, on a one-month loan deal.
