Tranmere want North Queensland Fury ace Fowler as player-manager
The People says Tranmere want to tempt Fowler to make a sensational comeback ... as their player-manager.
Fowler would be able to play at League One level without much trouble, so he is doubly appealing as Johnson looks for a successor to John Barnes.
Johnson's been told there is a chance Fowler could be tempted home despite uprooting his family just a few months ago.
Fowler would also pull the crowds on Merseyside, where he is still a major figure after two spells with Liverpool.
The move was represent a major gamble for Johnson, but he has been prepared to take them in the past.
