Adam Johnson Set For Crunch Talks As Liverpool & Spurs Circle

By on July 2, 2012

Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Liverpool and Tottenham target Adam Johnson seeks talks over his future.

Adam-Johnson

Liverpool and Tottenham target Adam Johnson will discuss his Manchester City future with boss Roberto Mancini this week, according to the Daily Star.

Fanbet

The winger signed a new five-year contract worth £70,ooo-a-week in January but has seen his career stall at the Etihad after failing to secure a place in the City first team and the 24-year-old is now keen to learn how Mancini sees his role at the club.

Johnson only made 26 league appearances last season, many from the bench, and was omitted from Roy Hodgson’s England squad for this summers European championships.

The Star claim that both Liverpool and Tottenham are among the clubs ready to pounce should the player be made available for transfer this summer, with the Premier League champions valuing the attacker at around £15m.

FT Verdict

Unless Mancini is willing to give Johnson more game time, which he deserves, i think the player has got to push for a move.

He is far too talented to sit on the bench and a move to Liverpool or Tottenham would not only do him the world of good, but also boost his chances of breaking in to the England reckoning.

    And the Star knows how? Well Liverpool haven’t told them, as to Manager-less Spurs who knows who’s doing the talking there.

    Yeah he is going to Spurs because he is that much better than Bale he will fit straight into the first team resolving all his worries! LOL.

    After this season I have a feeling Liverpool will be able to attract the best young talented playing around, once they see Liverpool playing the best attacking football in England, until then players like Johnson will have to do.

    Seriously doubt he would go to liverpool. U guys couldnt even get sig and got beaten to the transfer by a team who has much less stadium capacity and pays less in wages. Would either luv him or hoilett at the club. Going to liverpool fc is a step down in my books. You lfc fans still live in the rush / beardsley days. Get over it.

      What about the European cup winning days not so many years ago mav and Sigurdsson has not chosen a club and Anfield is not a lot larger than white hart lane.
      Get your facts right dude

    LFC have enough of crappy British, overpaid and overpriced mercenaries. We dont need another. I say Rodgers go buy players from elsewhere. Not British.
