Exclusive: We speak to Jonathan Barnett, the agent of Glen Johnson

Roma Press has spoken exclusively to Jonathan Barnett, the agent of out-of-contract fullback Glen Johnson, who has been rumored to be very close to a move to Roma.

Has there been any contacts with Roma?
No, there hasn’t been any at the moment, no.

Would Glen Johnson be interested in a move to Roma?
Yes, he’s obviously looking for things at the moment. He’s looking at many clubs. Glen is obviously looking for somewhere where he can, obviously, turn around his career. That’s the most important thing for him. Where he can play nicely under a good club that’s challenging for things. That is where he wants to be.

Is there a timeframe for when Glen will make his decision?
No, at the moment there isn’t a timeframe.

Some outlets have reported he has spoken to (ex-Roma striker) Fabio Borini about the city and club, is this true?
I don’t know anything about that.

Do you think Glen is considering Roma because of Ashley Cole and Fiorentina’s Micah Richards?
Well I can’t really say if he is considering Roma, we’ve had no contact with Roma. Although, Roma would be a lovely place for him – Ashley Cole absolutely adores it there, I represent him as well. Ashley thinks very highly of Rome but we’ve had no contact with Roma regarding Glen.
