Liverpool have identified Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon as an alternative to Dnipro wideman Yevhen Konoplyanka, [football] direct news understands. The Reds missed out on the Ukraine international on the final day of the January transfer window and, despite not ruling out a second bid, are assessing their options. A source close to Anfield told FDN that jet-heeled Spurs star Lennon has emerged as a candidate, with the Merseyside outfit able to offer the England man Champions League football next term – something his current club cannot match. The 27-year-old has endured a frustrating season in north London after being used sparingly by former head coach Andre Villas-Boas and sometimes out of position by the Portugese’s successor, Tim Sherwood. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is anxious to add more width to his side ahead of next season’s European campaign and could capitalise on the fact that Lennon has only two years remaining on his Spurs contract.
