Inter Milan Plot Move for Tottenham Winger Aaron Lennon

San Siro side wants White Hart Lane flyer.

Inter Milan have turned their attention to Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon after being put off by an asking price of £20million for Theo Walcott.

The Italian club want to inject some pace into their side as they bid to reclaim the Serie A crown they last won in 2010.
Lennon would represent a far cheaper option than Walcott, despite the Gunners star entering the final year of his contract at Emirates Stadium.

Any move from Inter Milan for Aaron Lennon is sure to get short shrift from White Hart Lane boss Andre Villas-Boas and their need for a keeper is unlikely to mean that the use of Julio Cesar to sweeten the deal would amount to much.

The pull of a move to the San Siro has diminished of late, a succession of poor managerial appointments has led to a lean spell for the Nerazzurri and the lack of a Champions League berth won’t help matters either.

Despite having spent seven seasons at Tottenham, former Leeds United man Lennon is still just 25 and has proven to be one of the most astute buys the North London club have made in the recent past. The speedy winger cost just £1m as Spurs made the most of the Elland Road side’s financial problems.

Lennon has had some up and down times over the past seven years but has overall been a big success and Tottenham are not going to be looking to sell the England international. The pint sized wide-man has had a few injury issues but has amassed over 250 appearances for the club.

Villas-Boas could well do with a long term replacement for veteran Brad Friedel and whilst Brazilian Julio Cesar is a very able and experienced performer the Portuguese boss is unlikely to consider a swap offer.
