Liverpool are considering launching a daring raid to lure Sunderland winger Adam Johnson to Anfield, with Fabio Borini going the other way, according to reports.

The Express claims that the Reds are weighing up the possibility of moving for Johnson, following his excellent form this season.

The ex-Manchester City star has been playing out of his skin recently and has bagged himself six goals in his side’s last four games. Such performances are thought to have caught the attention of England boss Roy Hodgson, who may see Johnson as an ideal addition to his World Cup squad.

As far as Liverpool’s interest in concerned, it makes perfect sense in accordance with Brendan Rodgers' transfer plans. The Reds tried and failed to bring in youngster Tom Ince from Blackpool last month and remain intent on bolstering their squad this summer.

The key to any potential deal may lie with Fabio Borini, who is currently on loan at the Stadium of Light having failed to make a lasting impression since his switch to Liverpool in 2012.

The Italian is set to return to Merseyside at the end of the current season but Rodgers may consent to allowing him to remain with Sunderland if it makes a deal for Johnson more viable.
