West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone will sign for Tottenham when his contract expires at the end of the season, according to reports.

The north Londoners are now said to be favourites to land the 28-year-old, who was called into the England squad for Euro 2020, after Manchester United decided against re-signing the ‘keeper.

That’s according to The Mirror, who say that Spurs see Johnstone as a ‘quality reinforcement’ and someone who can push current No.1 Hugo Lloris.

The 29-year-old has earned three caps for England and will be hoping to secure a place in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad with a move to the Premier League this summer.

Lloris, who will turn 36 later this year, has been the club’s first-choice keeper since joining Tottenham from Lyon in 2012.

The Spurs captain has played under six different managers during his time in north London, featuring 386 times in all competitions.

He is also the club’s Premier League record appearance holder with 310 top-flight games in a Tottenham shirt and is currently the club’s longest-serving player.

Lloris signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the club in January, which will run until 2024.

And Johnstone is now being targeted as a back-up and potential replacement for the Frenchman, with their current No.2, Pierluigi Gollini, only on loan from Atalanta.

Gollini has only played in cup games since arriving in north London
