Tottenham Hotspur are set to battle with West Ham and Southampton in the race for West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnston.

Johnston has a contract with West Brom until the end of the season. Although the championship team is trying to renew a new contract with the team’s number one goalkeeper. 

But until November it was not successful. Sky Sports reports that Spurs have long been monitoring Johnston’s situation and are now in contention for West Ham United and Southampton.

They who both want to sign for free with the 28-year-old goalkeeper Spurs are still looking at an option to replace captain Hugo Lloris over the long term. Even in the past summer, Pierluigi Gollini was signed on loan from Atalanta with an absolute purchase condition. If able to sign a free contract with Johnston in the summer of next year. It is an interesting choice.

For Johnston is a boy of Manchester United. But has not had the opportunity to play for the first team even a single game. That is under the Red Devils for patience until 2018 to move permanently to West Brom.

Ismael said: “From January we will start to go more intensively in the discussion but at the moment we’re all focused on the pitch, on the performances.

“We know what we have to do to give ourselves a good position for the negotiation with him.

“It’s a patient game now, like a chess game. He wants to see. For sure, we want to extend and, at the minute, I’m not worried, it’s a normal process.
