Cape Town - Glen Johnson could join the likes of Micah Richards and Ashley Cole by plying his trade abroad when he quits Liverpool in the summer.
The Daily Mirror report that Liverpool defender Glen Johnson is exploring the idea of playing abroad when his contract at Liverpool ends in June.
The 30-year-old defender snubbed the chance to extend his stay at Anfield, with the club reportedly offering the player a new deal but at half of his current £120,000-a-week wages.
Johnson is expected to leave the club in July on a free and has now revealed that a move away from England is likely.
"I do like the idea of going abroad," said Johnson.
"There have been talks. I'm still young and it would be great for the kids.
"But I'm not thinking about that at the moment. We will have to wait and see."
Johnson signed for the Reds from Portsmouth in 2009 for a fee in the region of £18 million.
Rafa Benitez is reportedly leading the race to sign Johnson as he looks to bolster his Roma defence.
