Adam Johnson looks set to leave Manchester City this summer, with Liverpool, Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur all chasing the midfielder’s signature.

The 25-year-old has scored 15 goals in 97 appearances for the Eastlands outfit, and many Liverpool fans on Twitter were keen to see the England international move to Anfield.

Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.

Emily Jade Hansell (‏@emilyhansell) thinks Johnson is wasted at City: “I do hope Adam Johnson moves to a different club this transfer window, he is wasted at City. #football #underrated”

Liverpool fan Glen Pirrie ‏(@GlenPirrie) would much prefer Johnson to Stewart Downing: “Hopefully the rumours are true regarding Adam Johnson, quality player wasted at #mcfc. Would be a great replacement for Downing #LFC!”

And Tyler Smith ‏(@Tyl3r_Smith) thinks Johnson would be a bargain at £8m: “Adam Johnson for £8m would be incredible! Can’t believe Sunderland and Newcastle think they have a chance. He’s Middlesbrough! #lfc”

Andy ‏(@biganddaft66) agrees: “Adam Johnson? £8m? Sounds like a bargain to me. Speed, skill, good delivery and a few goals to boot. What do you say?”

Charlie Burton (‏@charlie90burton) reckons Liverpool could do with a few new signings, including Johnson: “I agree, Liverpool need a few players, I would like to see Adam Johnson before window closes!”

Tottenham supporter Jeff Brown ‏(@VanHees19) hopes to see Johnson at White Hart Lane: “I would be happy with either Adam Johnson or Fernando Llorente joining my hot Spurs. Bottom line is they need attackers!”

Lester Tan (‏@ibuildsandcastl) reckons Scott Sinclair will end up like Johnson if he signs for City: “If Scott Sinclair goes to City, he’ll end up like Adam Johnson. Don’t go there, dude. No first-team football.”

And Chris Guy ‏(@ChrisGuy_10) can see the same happening: “Man City would rather Sinclair over Adam Johnson? Don’t get why Sinclair doesn’t want to play football anymore #moneyistheonlymotive!”

Elliot Jones ‏(@Elliot_Kenwyne) doesn’t rate Johnson: “What’s the buzz about Adam Johnson? He really isn’t that good at all. He’s the most predictable player around, cut in onto left and shoot..”

Berba’s Lady (‏@EfoSanyang) believes Johnson would be a flop at Liverpool: “If Liverpool sign Adam Johnson, he is just going to be another flop!”

Finally, Gav Roberts ‏(@Gav246) jokes Liverpool will be hunting for Massimo Maccarone next: “Liverpool after Adam Johnson? With him and Downing out wide they’d just need Massimo Maccarone to recreate Middlesbrough’s glory days.”
