Tottenham Hotspur: Journalist makes ‘legitimate’ Sam Johnstone transfer claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Journalist Ryan Taylor of The Daily Express has shared news on another free agent that Tottenham Hotspur could sign this summer in West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

The Lowdown: Paratici eyeing free summer deals…

As reported by The Mail, Spurs transfer chief Fabio Paratici is eyeing players with ‘dwindling contracts’ for manager Antonio Conte this summer as he weighs moves for low-cost 2022 free agents.

The likes of Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele have been repeatedly linked already, whilst Juventus forward Paulo Dybala is another player thought to be on Tottenham’s radar.

Meanwhile, recent links have also come to light concerning another Juve player in Juan Cuadrado, who can be deployed as a right-wing-back option for Conte.

Sharing news on Twitter, Taylor has now claimed that Tottenham could sign another free agent in West Brom’s soon to be out-of-contract ace Johnstone.

The Latest: Taylor makes ‘legitimate’ Johnstone transfer claim…

Indeed, the journalist says the Baggies ‘keeper is a ‘legitimate option for Spurs this summer‘ on a free as Paratici seemingly sets his sights on another possible zero-cost transfer.

The Englishman has already admitted that he is eager to be back playing in the Premier League, with loanee Spurs goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini looking set to make a return to his parent club Atalanta.

The Verdict: Great option…

As Tottenham seem set to return to the market in search for a backup to Hugo Lloris, Johnstone may well be their most shrewd option given his soon-to-be Bosman status.

His performances at The Hawthorns last season prompted an England call courtesy of Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate, with pundit and former goalkeeper Paddy Kenny branding the 29-year-old an ‘unreal‘ shot stopper.

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Johnstone’s addition could seemingly hand Lloris some much-needed competition for the number one spot at Tottenham and keep the Frenchman on his toes.

Taking this into account, a possible move for the 29-year-old looks like a smart one, especially for little financial risk.
