Inter Plan Liverpool Right-Back Glen Johnson Signing - Report

The new coach wants Reds talent...
Inter are interested in signing Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson, according to Calciomercato.

New Inter coach Rafael Benitez is already looking for ways to strengthen his recently-inherited side and he has been linked with a move for several of his former Liverpool players.

Johnson, signed from Portsmouth last summer, was a regular first-team member at Anfield under Benitez, making 35 appearances in his first season with the Reds.

The England international's arrival at the Giuseppe Meazza would prepare the way for the departure of Maicon, who has been strongly linked to Real Madrid.

Reports in Italy indicate that Johnson would cost Inter a fee of €15 million, a figure which would not pose a problem for the treble-winning side as they hope to sell Maicon for almost twice as much.
