Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson is being discussed at Inter Milan.

Incoming Inter coach Rafa Benitez has discussed with president Massimo Moratti returning to Anfield for Johnson in the event they sell Douglas Maicon to Real Madrid.

Benitez is eager not to be left without a quality right-back should he lose Maicon and sees Johnson's attacking qualities as mirroring the Brazilian.

The former Liverpool manager also hopes to be reunited with Javier Mascherano.
