Liverpool chief Damien Comolli has the insider's view on Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

Comolli is hoping to sign for former Leeds United midfielder.

The People says Lennon was one of Comolli's first ­signings as Tottenham's ­director of football in 2005, although the deal with Leeds was teed up by his predecessor Frank Arnesen.

Comolli remains a staunch admirer of the ­player, whose all-round game has ­improved under Harry Redknapp.

Lennon could be ready for a new challenge - ­although he still has three years left on his current contract, meaning he will not come cheap.
