Fulham boss Hodgson keen to see off rivals for Everton's AJ

Fulham boss Roy Hodgson is keen to close the signing of Everton striker Andy Johnson.

The Daily Mail says Hodgson expected the deal to be done during Fulham's tour of Korea, but now fears Johnson could end up at a Premier League rival if Everton continue to hold up the £10.5million transfer.

West Ham are weighing up a move for Johnson as their own striker, Craig Bellamy, is wanted by Manchester City.

Sunderland boss Roy Keane is also interested as Kenwyne Jones has a knee injury.
