Lloris out… Johnstone in (?)
All the rumours of whether Lloris will stay for another year is on everybody’s lips. Loris is now 34 years old and probably does not have many more years to go, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he wishes to end his career with some more trophies, but at another club… So if he goes, who will take his place? It won’t be Joe Hart as he is also 34 and close to being designated to the knackers yard… so who? How about Sam Johnstone, who at 28 is just a spring chicken. And don’t forget that WBA have just been relegated, so might be interested in offloading their goalkeeper for some extra cash.
Hugo Lloris has been linked with a move back to Ligue 1 and Sam Johnstone is one of the names rumoured to be on Spurs’ radar as a possible replacement for the French World Cup winner. You might have read that It was reported back in March that the West Brom star could be available for a fee of around £7.5m to £10m this summer. That could be seen as cheap, and Daniel Levy likes cheap. But he won’t be alone in looking towards the WBA goalkeeper, as the likes of West Ham, Leeds United and Manchester United are also interested in the 28-year-old, who has arguably been the Baggies’ standout performer this season.
What do you think? Do you think he would be an excellent purchase to replace Hugo Lloris? Or maybe you fancy somebody else?
All the best, Glenn
