Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly leading the race to sign West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone in the summer transfer window. 

Spurs could be looking to bring in a new goalkeeper this summer, with captain Hugo Lloris facing an uncertain future.


The north Londoners are reportedly not convinced with his form, and they are exploring possible alternatives.

According to ESPN, Spurs have earmarked West Brom goalkeeper Johnstone as their top target and are leading the race for his signature.

The Atheltic claimed earlier this week that the Baggies will offload the 28-year-old goalkeeper if they fail to stay in the Premier League.
