Liverpool want Spurs midfielder in exchange for Keane

It has been rumoured this evening that Liverpool will ask Tottenham for Aaron Lennon in exchange for Robbie Keane. Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez completely left Keane out of his squad that beat Chelsea 2-0 this afternoon, which has fuelled speculation that Keane could be on his way back to Spurs.

Keane, 28, only left White Hart Lane last July after the two clubs agreed a fee of £20 million for the player, however things haven't worked out for the Republic of Ireland international and a move away has been touted. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has already openly admitted that he would love to sign Keane before the transfer window closes tomorrow.

Any potential move may now involve Spurs winger Aaron Lennon. The England international was heavily linked with a move to Anfield back in the summer but for whatever reasons he remains a Spurs player. Benitez is a keen admirer of the 21-year old and is now ready to demand Lennon in exchange for Keane.

This is a very interesting one indeed. There is no doubt Keane would be better off leaving Liverpool and I think Spurs fans would be glad to have him back, however would the North Londoners be willing to let Lennon go in the opposite direction. The move would benefit all parties. Keane would be getting much needed first team football and Liverpool would be getting a very promising young midfielder, who I feel has the ability to become one of the best midfielders in the country.
