Benayoun has been without a club since he left Chelsea in the summer, and is reportedly keen to join a club headed to the Premier League.
Redknapp said: “Someone rang me about a week ago about him and I said I would be interested in having a look at him, but never heard no more.
“But he’s very similar to what we’ve got here. If you get injuries, you never know, do you?”
