Roma enjoy inside-running for Liverpool Bosman prospect Johnson

AS Roma are in talks with the camp of Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson.

The Daily Star says the Italian giants are in the hunt to sign the Liverpool full-back on a free transfer next summer.

A move to Serie A would see him follow in the footsteps of former England team-mate Ashley Cole who made the switch to Rome in July.

Johnson's current £110,000 a week Liverpool deal expires at the end of this season.

And Roma have made contact with Johnson's representatives to register their interest.

Johnson can sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club from January 1 ahead of a summer switch.

Last season's Italian league runners-up are determined to be at the front of the queue.

A free transfer to Roma is likely to land Johnson a pay rise and also offer him the chance to revive his career.

Johnson is represented by the Stellar Group, the same firm who look after ex-England star Cole and negotiated his move to Roma.
