£10m Johnson Heading To Liverpool or Tottenham?

By on August 21, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Liverpool and Tottenham are linked with Adam Johnson.

Liverpool and Tottenham are leading the race to sign out-of-favour Man City winger Adam Johnson, according to the Mirror.

The England attacker was left out of the City squad for Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton so he could spend time resolving his future, and it seems he has a number of options available to him.

Liverpool, Tottenham, Sunderland, Newcastle and Everton are all said to be interested in the 25-year-old and are all willing to meet City’s £10m asking price.

Sunderland are understood to be pushing hard for a deal and are prepared to meet his valuation and wage demands. However, the Mirror claim the player would prefer a move to either Anfield or White Hart Lane.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is believed to be confident he can secure a deal before the transfer window closes but may need to wait until Luka Modric is sold before he has the funds available to finalise the move. Liverpool are also keen with Brendan Rodgers eager to add Johnson’s creativity to his side.

The former Middlesborough midfielder has struggled to secure a first team spot at City since making the move in 2010, and feels he needs to move on to boost his England chances after missing out on Euro 2012.

    Just like Charlie Adam last year – the wrong choice yet again!!! We need strikers in the box to finish. We get all the crosses and passes in but cannot put them away so naturally we get another so-called “winger” ! Give up…..

      We need both (winger and finisher) but truthlly we will get neither. Liverpool Football Clubs got no money. Any one we want someone else wants more and have the money to get. Money LFC dont have.

    Would agree with chesterton … we need a goal scorer, plenty of chances created last season, we lacked the final touch (a goal)…

    I disagree. It’s an issue that needs resolving. No point havin a great finisher if there’s hardly any service. Suarez, Borini, Carroll, and even Gerrard would benefit from a player who can beat full backs and cross or link up in the box. To me it’s a definite must otherwise there could be more days like west brom due to lack of invention and creativity from the midfield players more so the wide men.

    liverpool main problem is,no playmaker any more, i remember when i joined lfc 7yrs ago, the tactics is any body can score, bt now we only depend on triker alone, moreover before suarez will net, he will miss many chances, and we dont have any playmaker again, steirling needs to be introduce,and we should go for adam johnson as well, and one sharp striker again.
