It’s been interesting to see the transfer rumours this summer and in particular the ones that come full circle and try to let us believe that we’ve never seen them before.
Over the course of June, the links with Jermain Defoe to Arsenal, Aaron Lennon to Liverpool and the possible arrival of Serdar Tasci from Stuttgart have appeared, disappeared and subsequently appeared once again. In fact, the Defoe story seems to have started a third round this morning.
That aside, the story over Lennon is an interesting one. There were rumours of frustration from Redknapp last year which culminated in the winger’s non appearance in the first leg of the Real Madrid tie.
Moving on from this, Tottenham have been linked today with a move for Valencia’s Spanish Under 21 star Juan Mata.
So could there be any possible truth in these rumours? Furthermore, should Aaron Lennon be moved to the ‘not for sale’ pile along with the likes of Modric, Bale and Sandro?
