Liverpool To Make £8million January Swoop For Spurs' Lennon? - Villa & Newcastle Also Linked

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 at Spurs 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.

However, Villans boss Martin O’Neill will also be keeping an eye on the situation, with the Irishman a big admirer of Lennon and his exceptional pace, but having signed James Milner from Newcastle would appear not to need Lennon. While the Magpies have still to fill the void left by the sale of Milner.
