As Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers continues to strengthen his new Liverpool side, he is weighing up his options and contemplating a move for Manchester City's squad player Adam Johnson.

Johnson has been in and out of Roberto Mancini's City side throughout last season and now at the age of 25, desperately seeks regular first team football. Rodgers sees him as the perfect type of player to fit in to his style of play and with pacey Moroccon winger already arriving from Heerenveen, Johnson could be the perfect player to join on the opposite flank.

Manchester City would negotiate a fee of around £12 million for the England international, who got a full 90 minutes in England's 2-1 victory of Italy on Wednesday evening. The winger had an impressive game looking like he had a point to prove.

With growing speculation that Manchester City are looking to bring in Team GB and Swansea winger Scott sinclair, this would suggest that Johnson is well on his way out of the blue moon of Manchester.

Everton are also targeting Johnson, but with Liverpool said to be his preferred choice and of course the chance to play in Rodgers exciting style of football, would suit the England man much more.

Johnson operates on the right wing usually with a fantastic ability to cut in on his left foot and fire in powerful shots at goal. He can be fairly versatile, he'll switch wings often and is just as likely to hit the by-line as he will be cutting inside. 

Rodgers will now look at his options ahead of the transfer window closing on the 31st of August. There will be more new faces to appear at Anfield yet though.
