Many West Ham United fans are eager to sign Sam Johnstone after they were linked with a move for the goalkeeper.
The Hammers are currently flying in the Premier League as they sit fifth in the table, just three points behind Chelsea in the last spot for the Champions League (Sky Sports). However, it appears that they are already planning for the future and a potential European campaign, and £5.4m-valued West Brom goalkeeper Johnstone (Transfermarkt) is seemingly on their radar.
The Irons are said to be one of several clubs interested in him, along with Manchester United, but he would prefer a move to east London as he feels he would receive more playing time (via Daily Star). Although the Baggies look guaranteed to go down this season, Johnstone has managed a save percentage rate of over 70% (FBref) and has been one of the few players to impress at The Hawthorns during a difficult campaign.
