Liverpool convinced Johnson doesn't want Chelsea return

Liverpool remain confident beating Chelsea for Portsmouth fullback Glen Johnson.

The News of the World says Kop boss Rafa Benitez will lodge a £10 million bid when the Portsmouth full-back returns from international duty with England.

Benitez is keen to land Johnson, 25, after suffering a major setback when Villa's Gareth Barry chose Manchester City.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is also interested but Benitez hopes Johnson's previous unhappy spell at Stamford Bridge will influence his decision. Benitez can guarantee Johnson he will be a first-choice next season.
