Johnson is out of contract with the Reds at the end of the season and is widely expected to depart, with Brendan Rodgers not thought to be pursuing the idea of renewing the player’s current deal.
According to the Daily Mirror, negotiations have begun over Johnson’s return to London, with the Hammers not expecting to keep hold of Carl Jenkinson, who will return to Arsenal following the completion of his loan deal.
Johnson, 30, began his senior career with West Ham in 2002, playing 15 times in the league before moving to Chelsea. He remained with the Blues until 2007, before joining Portsmouth and then Liverpool in 2009.
