West Ham to return for former defender

West Ham are weighing up a move for Liverpool defender Glen Johnson this summer, according to MailOnline.

The 30-year-old’s Anfield contract expires this summer and is not expected to renew terms with Brendan Rodgers’ side.

And the Hammers are thought to be looking at bringing Johnson back to Upton Park where he began his career in 2003.

But a move for Johnson will only depend on whether West Ham can strike a deal for on-loan Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson, who has impressed for the east London outfit this summer.

The Gunners want £8million for the England U21 star, while the Hammers are hoping to get him for a little less.

West Ham are looking to bring in four new signings this summer, with two of them reportedly lined up as ‘big name’ acquisitions.

But Sam Allardyce’s West Ham future remains in the balance as the club hold off on talks to renew his contract, which expires at the end of the season.
