This source claims that this deal is all but done!
Glen Johnson will complete a £9m move to Liverpool this week. The Portsmouth right-back was apparently given a tour of the Merseysiders’ Melwood training complex in the build-up to Christmas. (The People)
This story has been refuted by Pompey sources in the past but it does seem that the chase for the England full back is intensifying and he could be a great signing for Rafa. Johnson is a quality player who has got better and better since he left Chelsea where he became frozen out. The right back has greatly benefited from a consistent place in the Fratton Park side and is now a fixture in the England set up but it does seem that he will leave the club to pursue goals he simply cannot fulfill at the south coast club. Do Liverpool fans think that Glen could be a top notch signing or are there other areas of the side that need strengthening?
