Jermaine Pennant believes a partnership of Robbie Keane and Fernando Torres could be the best in the Premier League.
Liverpool have confirmed an interest in signing Keane, although Rafa Benitez's comments about the Irishman have prompted a complaint from Tottenham Hotspur.
Keane has told Spurs that he wants to join Liverpool and Pennant would welcome the gifted forward at Anfield.
With Torres having enjoyed a sensational debut season with the Reds, Pennant believes the combination of the Spaniard and Keane would be a major hit.
"Robbie is a great player," said Pennant in the Daily Star. "He's sharp around the box and is a great finisher.
"With Torres up front as well, it will be a great partnership. They could be as good as anything in the Premier League."
Meanwhile, Pennant is planning to still be a member of the Liverpool squad in the coming season as he looks to cement a place in Benitez's side.
Pennant has been linked with a move to Blackburn Rovers, but insists he is not looking to quit the Reds.
He added: "I'm not thinking about leaving at all."
