Rafa Benitez has tried to work his magic in the past to bring in a worthy right-back for Liverpool’s starting XI; but so far things haven’t worked out as he’d planned. Instead of picking a player with little Premier League experience this summer, Benitez could be primed to snap this right-back that could be priced to sell. He’d be well worth the £9m transfer fee!
Portsmouth’s Glen Johnson has been on Benitez’s list for some time now. Pompey and Liverpool were extremely close to closing the signing during the January window — but things seemed to fall apart at the last second.
Now word is, is that the two sides will come together during the summer to finalise a move that would see Johnson make the switch to Anfield. I’m sure Liverpool supporters wouldn’t mind seeing an attacking right-back with a nose for the goal. His performance against Manchester City over the weekend would be a welcomed sight on Merseyside.
