Liverpool looking to offload Glen Johnson with Moreno & Manquillo set to join [Zoller, NBC]
NBC’s David Zoller may have put the cart before the horse with this one, but based in Boston as he is, where Liverpool spent several days of their tour, it’s a story to be taken seriously.
Zoller claims Liverpool are looking to offload full-back Glen Johnson, ‘with Moreno and Manquillo in the bag’ – which of course neither are yet, by any means.
If Liverpool are to complete the double signing of the Spanish right-backs, then there’s every possibility that the reports Zoller has heard are true, as Johnson would likely fall behind in the pecking order during the season…
