Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is being linked with a move to sign Tottenham’s forgotten man David Bentley. The 26 year old attack minded midfielder has not started a minute of Premier League football for the White Hart Lane club and is now desperately looking for a lifeline to resurrect his ailing career.
Rafa Benitez was strongly linked with a move for the former England man during his reign at Anfield and with the Merseyside club suffering a woeful start to the campaign Hodgson has already stated he would like to bring in five or six new signings in January and a move for the Spurs flair player may make a great deal of sense.
There were signs in the second half of last season that Harry Redknapp had faith in Bentley and as a result the former Arsenal man started 19 games as he helped the north London club to a top four finish. However this season his only action has come in a Carling Cup encounter and he appears to have no future at the club.
The likes of Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers have been heavily linked with a move for the Peterborough born attacker but perhaps he would jump at the chance of reigniting his career at Liverpool. Whilst Bentley’s time at Tottenham could lead to many believing that he has been a flop he is still young enough to turn his career around and showed in patches last term what he is capable of and the £8m rated playmaker may be worth taking a calculated gamble on?
