Tottenham are the frontrunners to sign West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone this summer, according to ESPN.
Back in January, we relayed a story from the Sun that claimed Mauricio Pochettino is keen to re-unite with Hugo Lloris at PSG, and Spurs want to sign either Johnstone or Manchester United’s Dean Henderson as a replacement.
And now, the Johnstone talk is back.
ESPN suggests Tottenham are leading the race to sign the former Manchester United man, who has earned rave reviews for struggling West Brom this season.
It is believed just £10 million could be enough to secure a deal for Johnstone because the goalkeeper only has one year remaining on his current contract.
The report goes on to say that Spurs face competition from Manchester United and Leicester City – Johnstone’s destination could depend on which club can offer him a guaranteed starting spot.
EPSN says Tottenham have continuing doubts over Lloris, so perhaps Johnstone would come straight in as the Frenchman’s replacement.
It’s too early to say whether that’s a possibility, but this summer could be interesting when it comes to Spurs’ goalkeeper situation.
