West Ham are exploring a possible move for Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson, according to well connected West Ham site KUMB.com.
The 30-year-old’s Anfield contract expires next summer and Sam Allardyce could move to bring the England international back to Upton Park 13 years after he left for Chelsea.
Johnson is a product of West Ham’s famous youth academy and, despite expressing his desire to remain at West Ham at the time, was sold to the Blues for £6million in 2003 following West Ham’s relegation from the Premier League.
Liverpool are not expected to offer Johnson a new deal and are preparing for life without him as they chase a number of replacements, including Uruguayan right-back Maxi Pereira.
The Hammers were hoping to make Carl Jenkinson’s loan stay a permanent one next summer, but appear to have been put off by Arsenal’s £8-10million valuation.
