Johnson’s deal expires in June and Liverpool have told the England right-back he must accept a cut on his current £110,000-a-week wages to stay at Anfield.

The former Chelsea star, who turned 30 last week, has been so far unable to reach a suitable agreement with the club, but he has insisted that he is remaining calm about the situation.

“I’m very relaxed about my contract,” he told the Liverpool Echo.

“There are no talks going on with the club at the moment. There were minor talks towards the end of last season but nothing else.

“I’ve loved playing my football here from day one. I’m more than happy here. But obviously I can only talk to the club about it when they want to speak to me.”

Many believe that manager Brendan Rodgers has already signed a replacement for the 30-year-old in the shape of Javier Manquillo, who joined the club from Atletico Madrid on loan this month.
