Arsenal's Jermaine Pennant has insisted that his main priority is to win a new contract with the Premiership champions.

The 21-year-old spent an impressive season on loan at Leeds United last term and he has now returned to Highbury.

Although not being a regular, he has never been out of contention within Arsene Wenger's first team and has played seven times.

Pennant has been linked with moves to Premiership clubs Aston Villa, Everton, Blackburn and Middlesbrough, but he is looking to earn a prolonged stay at Arsenal.

I'm not sure if he was the dearest transfer for his age, but i think he is a great player. He just needs a run in the side to show how good he really is.

yer. a run will do him good, he got skill. any other team rather than the big 3 and he could be playing more often

i think he joined arsenal when he was about 14 or 15?

it looks like everton and liverpool want to sign the player in the summer

Liverpool and Everton are ready to battle it out for the signature of Jermaine Pennant in the summer.

The talented Arsenal wide man has found opportunities scarce at Highbury this season and is out of contract in the summer.

Despite being a regular for England Under-21s and impressing whilst on loan at Leeds last season, Pennant has failed to break into Arsene Wenger's first team plans as much as he would have liked.

A host of Premiership clubs, including Manchester City and Southampton are thought to be monitoring the situation, but it is the Merseyside duo that head the queue.

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is known to be an admirer of the pacey winger, while Toffees boss David Moyes is keen to add quality to his midfield in the summer.

Pennant moved to Highbury in 1999 as a teenager from Notts County and at the time, was thought to be one of the brightest prospects in English football.
