Italian giants to pounce for Spurs star?
Whilst all attention here in the Football Transfer Tavern has been on Gareth Bale of late, a story in Metro has meant that fellow player Aaron Lennon has seen the spotlight cast firmly on his shoulders.
Lennon has been linked with a summer move away from White Hart Lane and is attracting interest from Inter Milan. The Italian giants are ready to make an £8 million bid for the winger and with such a lucrative offer on the table in terms of wages and incentives, the Nerazzurri hope it will be too good for Spurs to turn down.
The 25-year-old has been increasingly impressive this season and is finally coming into his own capping it all off with a brilliant performance in the recent North London derby. Inter have taken note and are willing to make a move for the player in order to return to the top of their game after a disappointing league campaign this term.
The club are hurt after missing out on the Champions League this season and are determined not to let it happen again. Andre Villas-Boas already has to deal with Gareth Bale possibly leaving and now will be more determined than ever to get a top four spot in order to make sure both of his star players remain at the club. Given they are seven points in front of Arsenal, this is becoming increasingly likely.
