Tottenham are hoping to lure Liverpool right back Glen Johnson to White Hart Lane this summer. White Hart Lane boss Harry Redknapp feels that the England international would help resolve what he considers a problem area on the right hand side of his defence.
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 amenable to a sale for the right price given the impressive form shown by youngster Martin Kelly which 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. Tottenham are apparently willing to spend up to £12m for the attack minded full back but the North London side may also consider offering a player as part of any deal with the likes of Niko Kranjcar and Peter Crouch both recently linked with interest shown by Liverpool.
