EJ was once considered the future of the US forward line, but his career has stagnated since his move to Fulham in the summer of 2008. Though he may never scale the heights pundits had once hoped were his, last year’s loan to Aris Salonika of Greece — in which he scored five goals in 16 appearances — showed he still knows where the goal is.
Johnson’s contract expires in summer of 2011, and it's possible Fulham would let him walk for free just to have his contract off the books. If that’s the case, then D.C. United would be a perfect landing spot. No team in MLS history has needed a proven goal-scorer more and, lest we forget, Johnson has a Golden Boot and a 15-goal season under his belt in the league.
