According to this source, Rafa is watching intently at goings on at White Hart Lane, with a view to possibly making a move for the club’s international winger.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is ready to cash in on Aaron Lennon.
The England winger is set to be offered to Portsmouth in a cash-plus-player swap offer for Jermain Defoe, says the Daily Express.
Any indication that Lennon is available is sure to spark the interest of Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, a long time admirer of Lennon. (tribalfootball.com)
Aaron Lennon is a talented individual but for too long now he has underperformed. When he first arrived, everyone was shocked at what a bargain Tottenham had got for their £1m outlay, and soon enough he was an England international who was regularly making the squad. However, for the last 18 months, he has been misfiring.
I can see what Rafa sees in the former Leeds man. After all, he is still only 21 years of age but has 150+ top level games under his belt. Apparently now valued in today’s market at around £12m, he could still be worth taking a punt on and, judging by some reports, Harry may be ready to cash in on the winger in order to generate funds for a raid on his former club – maybe Liverpool will make a move? Do Anfield supporters think that the speedy impish youngster would be a good addition to the team?
