This source outlines two England internationals who are high up on the club’s shopping list.
Aaron Lennon could be leaving Tottenham. The England winger may be on his way to Liverpool if Xabi Alonso is sold. There could even be a return to Anfield for Wigan striker Emile Heskey. (The Times)
Rafa Benitez’s side is purring right now, unbeaten in 11 games across all competitions and with Fernando Torres back to inflict more misery on defences things are looking up for the Merseyside outfit. However the club may well still feel the need to bring in a couple of signings this month, but would they be in the form of either of these two? The Emile Heskey story has been going for ages and I don’t see why the former Anfield man would even be on Rafa’s radar. Aaron Lennon on the other hand would be a fantastic acquisition, a young man back to his best form and the kind of player who keeps you on the edge of your seat. If Liverpool did manage to snare the Spurs man then it would be a great addition to the team and one who at 21 still has a great deal of time to really fulfill his massive potential. Do Liverpool fans think either of these two will be on their way to the club?
