Rafa appears set to receive a bid for a player he will surely seek to cash in on as he looks for funds for new arrivals.
Ince is expected to make a firm bid for Liverpool’s Jermaine Pennant as Bentley’s replacement.
And should England man Bentley exit Ewood Park, Ince is said to be planning to replace him on the right-side of the Rovers midfield with another ex-Arsenal winger, Liverpool’s Jermaine Pennant.
Pennant, 25, is rated at £6million. He has not established himself as a regular first-team choice at Anfield, and could find the prospect of a move to Rovers appealing. (goal.com)
Jermaine Pennant has made it clear he would like to stay at Anfield but it seems very likely if an offer is indeed forthcoming then Benitez would surely not think twice about taking the money. After all we are talking about a player who has systematically failed to deliver for a most of his two years at the club. Aston Villa were also after the wide man but it appears that Martin O’Neill is still to decide the fate of his skipper so any move to the midlands seems unlikely at this juncture. Will the former Arsenal man be missed by Liverpool fans?
