According to a report by talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook, West Ham United are leading the race to sign goalkeeper Sam Johnstone from West Bromwich Albion – prompting many Hammers fans to rave as GSB allegedly eye the possible ‘great signing’.
The 28-year-old, as a result of his fine form, is in high demand – but Crook believes West Ham are the frontrunners for his signature.
David Moyes is apparently on the look out for an eventual heir to current number one Lukasz Fabianski, with the Poland international recently putting pen to paper on a new deal.
The Evening Standard report that Johnstone could even cost as little as £10 million, especially considering WBA’s relegation.
Now that West Ham are in pole position to sign the shot-stopping ace, many Irons supporters have raved over the news on social media – with one calling the Englishman a potentially ‘great signing’.
