Arsenal Are Ready To Compete With West Ham For West Brom Goalkeeper Johnstone Despite Worries About Lenos Future

Arsenal are considering a move for West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, with Bernd Leno’s future uncertain.
According to Sky Sports News, the 28-year-old has emerged as a possible target for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
Aaron Ramsdale of Sheffield United has been linked with a move to Arsenal, while Barcelona’s No 2 Neto has also been mentioned.
Arsenal are apparently interested in signing West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone. But, the Gunners have now expressed interest in signing Johnstone from the relegated West Bromwich Albion.
During his three-year stint in the West Midlands, former Man United youth product Johnstone has made 131 appearances for the Baggies, keeping 30 clean sheets.
This month, a PS6 million bid for Johnstone was reportedly rejected by the Championship team.
West Ham had a PS6 million bid for England goalkeeper Johnstone rejected by West Brom, according to reports. Johnstone has emerged as a target for a number of top level clubs, despite the Baggies’ relegation from the Premier League in 2020-21.
The 28-year-old’s contract around the Hawthorns is up in a year, and the club values him at PS10 million.
Spurs were linked with Johnstone as well, but have now moved on to Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
The Baggies goalkeeper, who is valued at PS10 million, has one year left on his present contract. West Ham are also looking for a goalkeeper this summer, with the same site reporting that PSG’s Alphonse Areola remains the club’s primary priority.
The three-time Ligue 1 winner spent the previous season on loan with Fulham, who were also relegated to the second tier, and the club is said to be considering a loan deal for him.
Areola’s future at the French champions appears to be gloomy as the club confirmed the signing of AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper arrives on a free transfer as a major coup for Mauricio Pochettino after his heroics with Italy at the Euros, where they won the tournament after a penalty shootout triumph over England.
