Reports both Newcastle United and Liverpool are interested in signing Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon.
For starters, I don’t see why Ramos would want to sell Lennon – it’s not like Tottenham need the money, it’s not like Lennon is going to fetch too much money, and it’s hard to see Ramos replacing someone like Lennon when there so much more to fix elsewhere in the squad.
On the other hand, Lennon would do well at both Liverpool (definitely ahead of Kuyt and Pennant) and Newcastle United. Some critics say that Lennon can’t cross, pass, or dribble and all he does is run like a headless chicken, but it wasn’t so long ago that his praises were being sung for his dynamic partnership with Keane and Berbatov.
Perhaps not as good as some players that he’s compared against (Ronaldo, Joe Cole, etc), but good enough in all the above-mentioned departments, one of the better and more naturally talented players at Tottenham and in my view, would be a great buy for either Liverpool or Newcastle United.
Thing is – Liverpool will probably go for someone better, and Newcastle United won’t attract him one bit. Unless he’s being booted out of the airlock, he’s set to stay at White Hart Lane for another season.
