Johnson appears closer to leaving Liverpool this summer as he looks for a team to help him turn his career around, according to the Daily Mail.

Johnson's current contract with the club expires this summer. He appeared as a substitute in Monday's win over Swansea, but his agent Jonathan Barnett said the defender is looking for a new club.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson wasn't available for Thursday's Europa League loss to Besiktas because he was dealing with an illness.

Johnson will likely have a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester City to determine his availability. The defender has three clean sheets on the season but should have a hard time getting his fourth if he ultimately overcomes his illness and takes the pitch Sunday, considering that City averages 2.15 goals per match this season.

Javier Manquillo will likely move into the starting XI in place of Johnson, who had posted two clean sheets in his last four Premier League matches.

Johnson is reportedly preparing for a transfer this summer after being disappointed with the wage cut Liverpool offered with their new contract for the player, reports Sky Sports.

Johnson is in the final year of his contract with Liverpool. The defender said the club knows his position and needs to put forth a contract that he can either accept or reject.

Liverpool offered Johnson a new two-year contract with the club that would cut his current salary in half, reports the Daily Mail.

The defender's current agreement expires at the end of the season. He now has the decision to stay with Liverpool and take a pay cut, or move elsewhere in search of more money.

Johnson returned from a thigh injury to sub on for Javier Manquillo in the 64th minute of Saturday's 2-1 win over West Brom, finishing with one successful clearance.

Johnson had not played since suffering the injury in late August against Manchester City and he'll now have to fight for his starting spot against Manquillo, who has held down the job since Johnson went down. The Liverpool back line has been pretty leaky anyway, so while Johnson does get involved in the attack when he plays, he doesn't generate a lot of clean sheets.
