Glen Johnson wants to leave Liverpool in January, according to 'a close friend'.
An exclusive report from Goal.com today suggests the Liverpool defender has his heart set on a New Year move to Inter Milan where he will link up with former Anfield supremo Rafa Benitez.
“Glen thinks he's going to Inter in January and wants to leave Liverpool if he gets the chance,” a friend of Johnson's allegedly told Goal.com.
“He is more content at Liverpool than some people have suggested – but he's not happy. It's not that he has a massive problem with [Roy] Hodgson, but Glen doesn't think he rates him and was understandably angry that he was criticised so publicly.
“He thinks throughout his career he has always performed best under managers who he knows have faith in him.”
Johnson joined Liverpool for £18 million in the summer of 2009 and still has two-and-a-half-years left to run on his £90,000-a-week deal at Anfield. However, according to Goal.com, Liverpool owners NESV would be prepared to let him quit Anfield as they continue the rebuilding process on Merseyside.
The 26-year-old has also been linked with a move to Real Madrid but, despite already having the talents of Brazilian ace Maicon at their disposal, Inter remain frontrunners for the England international's signature.
