West Ham switch on the cards for West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone

West Ham could become Sam Johnstone’s new club in the summer with the West Brom goalkeeper looking to stay in the Premier League, according to The Athletic.

The news website claims Albion are willing to sell the 28-year-old if they are relegated to the Championship and due to him entering in the final year of his contract in the summer, he’ll be up for grabs for between £7.5million and £10million.

It is understood that West Ham are a “possibility” for Johnstone in the summer with Lukasz Fabianski turning 36 this month and also entering the final year of his contract.

Darren Randolph, West Ham’s number two, has struggled with injuries and The Athletic adds that Hammers manager David Moyes already knows Johnstone from their spells at Manchester United.

SJ exit as inevitable as relegation

Most West Brom fans have already come to terms with the fact that Johnstone will be moving on in the summer transfer window.

It’s only likely that he’ll stay if Albion avoid relegation but with an eight-point gap to close down in eight remaining games, it seems almost impossible.

Johnstone will leave with our blessing too.
He’s been in superb form for the club this season and has proven that he’s capable of playing in the Premier League on a long-term basis.

We cannot offer Johnstone that so it only makes sense for him to move on and for West Brom to gather some funds to reinvest in the squad.

It remains to be seen how Luke Dowling and whoever will be in charge of Albion next season will go about replacing Johnstone but the club does have some decent goalkeepers on the books already who could shine in the Championship.

David Button, the Baggies’ current number two, has plenty of second-tier experience to his name while Alex Palmer is shining while out on loan at Lincoln City in League One.

We could see Johnstone sold for up to £10million in the summer and that money go towards adding a new striker or a central midfielder rather than a replacement goalkeeper.
