Glen Johnson speaking to many clubs ahead of Liverpool exit

Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson is looking at a number of clubs as his Anfield career looks set to come to an end, according to his agent. 

As reported by the Mirror, the player's agent, Jonathan Barnett, has revealed that the England international is desperate to get his career back on track and wants to play for a club challenging for honours. 

Barnett has insisted, however, that Johnson isn't talking to Serie A giants As Roma, but has suggested that the Italian outfit would represent a great club for his client to join. 

In fact, the player's agent, who also looks after Ashley Cole, has suggested that the former Chelsea star loves plying his trade for Roma, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club will enter into negotiations with Johnson over a possible move. 

Johnson, who currently earns as much as £120,000-a-week on Merseyside, is set to run out of contract at the club at the end of the campaign, and it now appears that he will move on at the close of the season. 

No Roma contact

"We've had no contact with Roma, although Roma would be a lovely place for him," he said. "Ashley Cole absolutely adores it there, I represent him as well.

"Ashley thinks very highly of Rome, but we've had no contact with Roma regarding Glen.

"He's obviously looking for things at the moment. He's looking at many clubs.

"Glen is obviously looking for somewhere where he can turn around his career - that's the most important thing for him - where he can play nicely under a good club that's challenging for things. That is where he wants to be."

Liverpool struggles 

In truth, Johnson has failed to prove his credentials under Brendan Rodgers throughout the course of the season.

Despite featuring on occasions, the versatile full-back hasn't been able to hold down a regular place in the club's starting XI, so it's not entirely surprising that he's looking to move on sooner rather than later. 

It's time 

There's no doubt about it, with things not looking so pretty for Johnson at Anfield, it's time for him to move on in the next transfer window. At 30-years of age, the full-back certainly has a good few years ahead of him yet, so perhaps he should look at moving abroad before it's too late. 

Without a doubt, there's a lack of English talent starring around the world, so Johnson should follow in Cole's footsteps and look to challenge himself in a new country. He's enjoyed a fine stint in England's elite division, but now seems to be the right time to move on for one final challenge.
