Liverpool have emerged as the favourites to sign Adam Johnson from Manchester City after Brendan Rodgers was promised funds to capture the England winger, it has been claimed.

It is Johnson's wish to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer in the pursuit of more regular first team football with the hope it will benefit his fledgling England career.

The 25-year-old made only 10 Premier League starts last season and City have already received a formal approach from Sunderland for the winger.

Tottenham have also shown an interest, as have Everton, but Liverpool are now the leading candidates to secure a deal for Johnson before the transfer window closes, according to The Independent.

Rodgers will be backed by the club's owners with the £10 million valuation City have placed on Johnson and, should be move to Anfield, will be the former Swansea manager's fourth summer signing.

The Northern Irishman has already completed deals for Fabio Borini, Joe Allen and Ousmane Assaidi, but is keen to add another penetrative option to his Reds midfield.
