Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs now the favourites to sign Sam Johnstone

Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs now the favourites to sign Sam Johnstone -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham are now the favourites to sign West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone in the summer, according to football.london’s Alasdair Gold.

The Lowdown: Johnstone’s contract

The 29-year-old’s current deal with the Baggies is set to expire in the summer. As a result, numerous rumours linking him with moves to a whole host of Premier League clubs have arisen.

Given his experience in the English top flight, Tottenham have been linked with a move for the ‘keeper as they search for a backup option for club captain Hugo Lloris.

The Latest: Spurs favourites for Johnstone

Gold reported for football.london that Spurs are currently the favourites in the race to sign Johnstone upon the expiry of his contract in the summer.

The homegrown status of the Preston-born goalkeeper is an appealing factor in Spurs’ pursuit of the 6 foot 4 West Brom man.

Consequently, this also suggests that Pierluigi Gollini’s loan move from Atalanta will not be made permanent at the end of the season.

The Verdict: Good addition

Whilst this move may appear relatively minor among Antonio Conte’s long-term plans as Tottenham manager, Johnstone’s arrival would provide a much-need addition in terms of squad depth.

The free transfer would allow for Spurs’ budget to be used elsewhere in a transfer window which is expected to see Conte backed in the market.

Johnstone would be a great signing for the Lilywhites on a free. Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle has praised him as an “outstanding” keeper, whilst Sam Allardyce has branded him “top-quality”, having worked together at West Brom, for whom he was a rare shining light as they were relegated last year.

Therefore, Fabio Paratici should be doing all he can to try and get this deal over the line.
