Manchester City are ready to make an offer for unsettled Liverpool striker Robbie Keane.

The Sun says the striker did not even make the bench for Sunday's 1-1 FA Cup draw with Everton.

He also failed to turn up to watch the match, throwing into doubt his Anfield future.

City manager Mark Hughes signed £14million striker Craig Bellamy from West Ham this month but is a huge admirer of Keane.

Kop boss Rafa Benitez insists the Irishman still has a future at Liverpool.

But Keane, 28 - a £20million summer buy from Spurs - has been substituted in all but one of the 16 Premier League games he has started for the Reds.
