Frank Macaveny said exceptionally Football FanCast that West Ham must be everywhere Sam Johnstone this summer.
The former Manchester United teenager is one of the excellent goalkeepers in the Premier League this season, although his excellent form is unlikely to save West Brom from relegation.
Given that the Baggies fail to escape much in the coming weeks, the British shooter worth £ 32,500 a week, who was recently rewarded with his first call from Gareth Southgate, is likely to leave the club.
Should West Ham sign Sam Johnstone?
Reports suggest that Johnstone will be available for just £ 10 million, although the Hammers could face stiff competition from London rivals Tottenham, who may also need a new goalkeeper.
Number one Lukasz Fabianski recently resumed his hammer deal, but mistakes crept into the Pole’s game this term, no more than the defeat at Newcastle earlier this month.
And Makaveni said Football FanCast that Johnstone would be an ideal replacement:
“I think it would be really good business.
“When you play for West Brom, you don’t lack action, he probably made more saves than most of the guards combined, and that’s not disrespectful to them, but without him they won’t have as many points as they have.
“For £ 10 million I can’t believe I’m saying that, but that’s nothing in this game. This is the nature of the beast now, and there is such money right on West Ham Street. “
