With anchorman Lee Carsley having left to join Birmingham, David Moyes' top priority this summer is finding someone to fill the void.

Moyes is monitoring Johnson's situation and he will be aware that new City boss Mark Hughes needs to sell before he can start rebuilding.

Johnson, who would cost in the region of £8m, is a player who Moyes knows already, given that the 20-year-old spent time at Everton's Academy as a junior.

He played in the same youth teams as Victor Anichebe and James Vaughan before joining City, for whom he has made 33 appearances since making his Premier League debut at Wigan in October 2006.
