Antonio Conte is keen on bringing Sam Johnstone to Tottenham Hotspur

According to Daily Mail (h/t The Star), Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is keenly interested in securing the services of Sam Johnstone.

The 28-year-old West Bromwich Albion star has been a dependable figure at the back for the Championship Club. He has played 148 matches for the Baggies across all competitions to date.

The Manchester United academy product has a plethora of experience in the Premier League which could help him adapt to the environment at N-17 much quicker. It is now believed that the Italian manager is interested in bringing him to Spurs.

The shot-stopper is being linked with a move to the Premier League as clubs likes West Ham United and Southampton also showing their interest apart from Tottenham.

Johnstone’s current contract with West Brom ends in June 2022, meaning he could ptoentially be signed on a free. The shotstopepr certainly adds great value given he could be available on a bosman transfer.

Hugo Lloris has been a faithful servant to the club for many years, but the Lilywhites could be looking for younger options to sustain that position with the future in mind. He has played 386 matches for Spurs across all competitions to date. The French goalkeeper is still going strong but at 35, Fabio Paratici may be more than happy to look for a possible replacement.

The French superstar will be out of contact with Tottenham at the end of the season. Jordan Pickford has also been touted as a suitable replacement but could cost Spurs a heavier fee seeing that he still has two years left on his contract with Everton.

The 28-year-old Albion keeper on the other hand could be a more cost-effective alternative. The Lilywhites may have to fight off some competition but the lure of working under a world-renowned manager like Antonio Conte and elite-level football may be enough to lure Johnstone.
