This source suggests that Rafa is running the rule over a Tottenham star who may well find first-team action at White Hart Lane hard to come by.
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is reportedly considering a January swoop for Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon, with the England international also said to be attracting attention from Aston Villa and Newcastle United.
21-year-old Lennon has been at White Hart Lane since joining from Leeds United in 2005 but, despite making a promising start to his career at the north London side, which forced him into the England squad, Lennon has not pushed on to become the star many thought he would at Spurs.
With the arrival of David Bentley from Blackburn Rovers, Lennon looks set to only play a bit-part under Juande Ramos in the Premier League season and could be open to a move in the January transfer window.
Should Benitez decide to follow up on this reported interest in Lennon then it is believed that it would cost the Reds in the region of £8million to reunite the winger with former team-mate Robbie Keane, who left Spurs for Anfield earlier this summer. (Premiershiplatest.com)
Aaron Lennon has talent, of that there is no doubt. But having been off form for a hell of a long time he has found himself struggling to impress Juande Ramos, who it appears wouldn’t lose too much sleep over letting the England man leave. He could well be a good investment by Rafa, after all the former Leeds man is still only 21 and could well improve in new surroundings. Do Liverpool fans think that Lennon could suit them down to the ground?
