The last few days all I have seen is that Liverpool are looking to take Lennon up north with a £20m move.
Letting Lennon go for me would be a massive mistake, although it scares me that it could well soon become a reality. On his day Lennon is one of the most dangerous wingers in the Premiership and when you have Bale on the left we have one of the best pairing of wingers in Europe. Maybe not the best technically but certainly one of the most dangerous as both Milan teams found out.
It worries me that Lennon has never really been one of Redknapp’s favourites without really ever doing much wrong, Harry has had no problem leaving him out the in the past. My worst scenario is come August when we come out against Everton is that David Beckham walks out the tunnel instead of Azza. Beckham may have the edge on crossing but that is useless to us until we get some strikers who can finish their dinner and too Lennon’s credit he improved a lot on his crosses last year in my opinion especially on his weaker foot.
I know some of you would be sad to see him go and some of you wouldn’t be too fussed but who would we replace him with? Would we be able to find someone else who makes us stand up from our seats in anticipations every time he goes on a run? To be a good winger you need to be able to beat a man and have pace, both are qualities that come naturally to Azza. There is also the prospect that he might want to move up north anyway and leave Harry with not much choice but I don’t think Spurs would force him to stay like we did on Luka.
It’s gossip at the moment but it’s one of the rumours that sounds a bit more likely and so we give it more credit. How big of a loss would Lennon be should he move to Anfield? For me it would be a massive mistake, it wouldn’t seem right seeing him in another shirt.
