Liverpool swoop for Man City winger

Liverpool are reported to be lining up a £17 million swoop for Manchester City winger Adam Johnson.Talks are set to move forward in the coming days and the Kop outfit are hoping Manchester City will do quick business on the England star who narrowly missed out on Roy Hodgson's Euro 2012 squad.New Reds boss Brendan Rodgers knows he also faces stiff competition from both Sunderland and Newcastle for Johnson, but the Merseysiders are understood to be willing to match his City wages.Former Anfield boss Kenny Dalglish set the wheels in the motion last season and Liverpool scouts have been tracking the tricky 24-year-old ever since.Rodgers is also a huge admirer of the player and has been told the funds are there to push through a big deal.Johnson is now looking for more first-team opportunities to further his England claims and Liverpool are confident they can provide them.
