Tottenham Chasing Liverpool FC Star

Tottenham are chasing Liverpool FC rightback Glen Johnson and hope that a 12 million pound deal will force Anfield officials to consider letting go of the English International.

Harry Redknapp looks set to bid for the Liverpool star as he considers the Tottenham Hotspur rightback position ‘problematic’. Redknapp has used Alan Hutton and Vedran Corluka in the right back spot this season and has not been overly pleased with either’s contribution and has previously purchased Johnson when he was Portsmouth boss and knows the 26 year old well from his time at West Ham when he was advancing through he youth set up during his spell as Upton Park boss.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish may be forgiven for a sale for the right price given the impressive form shown by youngster Martin Kelly which has forced Johnson into an unaccustomed spot as left back but any sale would have to be for a fee similar to that which was spent to bring the former Pompey man to Anfield.

Rafa Benitez spent £17.5m for Johnson in the summer of 2009 and his career at the Merseyside club has had more downs than ups and he may well jump at a chance of a return to London.
