According to a report by The Athletic, via West Ham Central, the Hammers and GSB could make a move to sign West Bromwich Albion keeper Sam Johnstone this summer for around £7.5 million – prompting plenty of supporters to erupt in response.
Now, The Athletic report he is on West Ham’s radar and even claim he could cost as little as £7.5m this summer as the Irons ponder a move.
Current shot stopper Lukasz Fabianski penned a new deal back in March, extending until 2022, but manager David Moyes may arguably need to start thinking about replacements for the 35-year-old.
Many supporters believe a possible £7.5m deal for Johnstone would be a ‘no brainer’, flocking to Twitter as this ‘quality’ news emerges.
Given his performances and acclaim over 2020/2021, it’s little wonder plenty of Irons approve of the possible swoop.
Find all of their best verdicts down below.
