Glen Johnson has been used as a make shift left back in recent weeks as Liverpool youngster Martin Kelly continues to impress at right back, leaving many to believe that the England international who arrived at Anfield for a rather inflated £17.5m may be on his way out after what has been a very inconsistent season from the former West Ham and Chelsea man.
During his 18 months at the Merseyside club Johnson has repeatedly failed to inspire, often finding himself out of position and unable to balance attack and defence and Kenny Dalglish may well listen to offers for his services.
Clearly Harry Redknapp knows the 26 year old very well and has been linked with a move to sign the Greenwich born player before and this source believes a move is on the cards. Alan Hutton has had a good season at White Hart Lane this term and it would be tough to bring in a replacement for the Scottish international given that good form.
Redknapp does of course like to dabble in the transfer market and has already loaned out David Bentley and looks likely to offload Robbie Keane and will also get a nice financial boost when former striker Darren Bent leaves Sunderland, leaving chairman Daniel Levy more likely to sanction big moves in the transfer market.
Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson is on the verge of a £15 million move to Tottenham Hotspur, with the England international only needing to agree personal terms with the North Londoners for the transfer to go through.
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has worked with the full back while he was in charge of both West Ham United and Portsmouth, signing him as a 15-year-old for the Hammers Academy, and again while at Fratton Park, where he spent £4m to bring him to the South Coast from Chelsea in August 2007.
Johnson has enjoyed an up-and-down two years on Merseyside since Rafael Benitez splashed out £17.5m to sign him in the summer of 2009, with injuries and a general loss of form leading many to question the value of his purchase in the first place.
And, with new Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish in desperate need of money to strengthen his under-performing squad as they battle against relegation and the Scot also delighted with the recent progress made by local boy Martin Kelly, who has deputised for Johnson in recent weeks with the defender absent due to personal issues, both parties appear happy with the move.(Sportingo)
