Liverpool and Manchester United are set to go head-to-head for the shock signature of Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon, according to the People.

Lennon has been out of form so far this season and could be available in the January transfer window as his club eye other options.

Harry Redknapp reportedly wants to fund a move to bring Aston Villa’s Ashley Young to White Hart Lane and will invite offers for Lennon.

According to the tabloid Sunday newspaper, Sir Alex Ferguson is a keen admirer but will face competition from Liverpool counterpart Roy Hodgson.

Liverpool are currently looking to bolster their squad after a poor start to the season sees them sitting outside of the top half of the table.

Hodgson sees January as the perfect time to continue his Anfield revolution and, with question marks over Milan Jovanovic’s future, could be in the market for a winger.

A striker is his priority, though, and rivals Manchester United could nip in and steal Lennon if Spurs want to rush through a transfer.

However, Ferguson has previously insisted there will be no new arrivals at Old Trafford in the forthcoming transfer window. However, if the Red Devils continue to drop points that stance could change.
