Liverpool offer Spurs £7m + Pennant for Lennon

Liverpool are set to make a January swoop for Spurs' winger Aaron Lennon according to the Daily Mail. Rafael Benitez will offer £7m as well as Anfield misfit Jermaine Pennant to try and tempt Tottenham to sell the in form Lennon.

Harry Redknapp tried to sign Pennant in the summer when he was still Portsmouth manager, so the deal may not be as far fetched as it appears at first glance. Liverpool are keen to offload the winger who has failed to make an impression since his £6.7m move from Birmingham in 2006.

Pennant turned down offers from Blackburn, Newcastle and Stoke during the summer, but the time seems to be up on his Liverpool career and he could be set to join David Bentley as another former Arsenal trainee wearing a Tottenham shirt.
