It has been reported that the Italian club Inter Milan are looking at the possibility of signing the Tottenham midfielder Aaron Lennon, who has been in brilliant form this season. There have been a lot of questions asked about the quality of the 25-year-old over the years.
However, he seems to have finally come of age at just the right time in his career. Lennon has been overshadowed by Gareth Bale in the last few seasons, but he has been able to match the Welshman in terms of goalscoring and assisting abilities. Lennon has been one of the main reasons alongside Bale for their impressive form of Tottenham in the last few months.
Lennon once again proved his importance to the team by scoring in the 2-1 win over Arsenal during the weekend. Lennon will be coming up against the Italian club Inter Milan in the Europa league looking to get a first leg advantage.
The first leg will take place at the White Hart Lane and the return leg at the San Siro two weeks later. According to Unibet, the most popular sports bet is on a Spurs win.
Lennon was a £ 1 million signing from the Championship club Leeds United almost a decade ago. He has made 28 appearances in all competitions, and he has helped Tottenham move into the third position in the league. Lennon might have scored only four goals this season, but he has eight assists to his name.
This is already turning out to be one of his most productive seasons for Tottenham. Inter Milan are rebuilding phase after losing several players over the years. The team are currently fighting to finish in the top three positions under the management of Andrea Stramaccioni. The young coach is under pressure, as they still have to make up the a few places before they can think about playing in the Champions league next season.
