Liverpool Boss Benitez Linked With Deportivo La Coruna Winger

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reportedly looking to bring in Deportivo La Coruna winger Angel Lafita during the January transfer window while the out-of-favour wideman Jermaine Pennant is linked with a move out of Anfield.

It looks like former England U-21 international Pennant, who has seen few starting opportunities at the Merseyside club this season, could be sold in the New Year with Real Madrid and Wigan Athletic said to be interested in the former Arsenal and Birmingham City player.

Reds manager Benitez meanwhile, is linked with Lafita and reports claim that the Spanish tactician sent chief scout Eduardo Macia to watch Lafita several times this season. He has reportedly already made some sort of a contact with the former Real Zaragoza man’s representatives.

The winger who joined Deportivo this summer has been attracting the attention from several other clubs like Manchester United, West Ham United and Atletico Madrid.
