Portsmouth Confirm Offer for Johnson

The Pompey chairman confirms that the club have received a big offer for the England full-back...

Portsmouth chairman Peter Storrie has stated that a big money offer for right-back Glen Johnson has been received.

The England full-back has been the subject of speculation linking him with a move away from Fratton Park for the majority of the season, and he could now make a move in the summer.

The bid is thought to be somewhere worth between £15 million and £20 million.

The clubs thought to be interested in the ex-West Ham United player are his former club Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

City were rumoured to have put in a bid of £18 million in the last couple of days, but it is now thought that the bid has come in from either the Blues or the Reds.

Storrie claimed that the club would not stand in the way of the player's chance to play Champions League football next season, and it is believed that Liverpool would be his preferred destination after a previously disappointing spell at Stamford Bridge.

Johnson has recently criticised his former employers for not giving him enough chances in the first team, and is reportedly not keen on a return to the Blues.

However, a move for the 24-year-old now seems likely as he looks to take a step up in his career.
