Liverpool Ace Set To Land In Rome In 48 Hours Ahead Of Summer Transfer

In a move which will no doubt bring a sigh of relief to many a Liverpool fan, Tuttomercatoweb is reporting that in the next 48 hours, Glen Johnson is set to meet with representatives at AS Roma ahead of a summer Bosman transfer.

Roma - no stranger to signing veteran full-backs after last summer's purchase of both Ashley Cole and Maicon - have held a long-standing interest in Johnson, and with Liverpool's last contract offer to Johnson seeing immediate rejection, Johnson looks poised to make the move.

Johnson has been somewhat of a casualty of Brendan Rodgers' 3-4-3, despite attempts to fit him in at centre-back, with Liverpool preferring unorthodox wing-backs in the form of wide midfielders to accommodate the manager's style of play.

Perhaps the slower pace or lower quality of Serie A will allow Johnson to showcase his talents a bit more; however, Johnson - long since a shadow of his already limited self - will likely not be missed at Anfield, and his fumbling routine mistakes condemned forever to the annals of history.
