Southampton are reportedly plotting a move for West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone ahead of the January transfer window next year. This is according to the report from English publication The Express and Star which stated that the Saints want to steal a march on other interested teams such as the London duo of West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur in the quest to sign the Baggies shot stopper.
Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are waiting patiently to snap up ex-Manchester United shot stopper Johnstone on a free transfer when his West Brom contract ends next summer. However, Southampton are prepared to offer West Brom a fee for his transfer at the start of next year when the England international will have some months to run on his existing deal at the Hawthorns.

Wales international winger Daniel James may have left English Premier League giants Manchester United to sign for Leeds United this summer, but they were not the only club that were interested in the former Swansea City man. James’ departure from Old Trafford was already a lingering topic in the media for some time and started gaining more media attention after the Red Devils signed England international star Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund dyeing the summer transfer window.
Football Insider understands that West Brom have agreed a free transfer deal for ex-Sheffield Wednesday winger Adam Reach. It was disclosed that the Baggies are on the verge of completing a move for Reach after they had a breakthrough in talks.
Liverpool star Takumi Minamino is one of the Premier League players that have been attracting interest from several clubs this summer. The Japan international attacker has not had the best of careers at Liverpool and has failed to secure regular football at Anfield since his move from Salzburg some months ago. Following his move to join the Reds, Minamino initially had high hopes that he would become an important player under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp but that has not been the case so far.
Although the German manager has admitted that even though he loves the player, he cannot promise him regular game time because there is too much competition for places in the team. Because of his inability to become a regular starter, Minamino was then sent out on loan two seasons ago as he sealed a temporary move to Southampton where he spent the rest of the season at St Mary’s.

West Ham United are clear favourites to sign West Brom shot stopper Sam Johnstone this summer. This is according to the publication from the Watford Observer. It was stated that the Hammers have a clear run on the player after it was established that Watford don’t want to sign the England international despite the numerous transfer links involving Johnstone and the club.
Johnstone had previously been linked with Watford who are newly promoted to the Premier League ahead of the new season after finishing second behind league champions Norwich City in the Championship. The Hornets picked up one of the two automatic spots for promotion alongside the Canaries before Brentford completed the three-team promotion line-up via the playoffs.

The win ensured that the Baggies are now nine points off the safety mark in the Premier League.
The win over Brighton and Hove Albion was a nervy one for West Brom fans as the players fought for the three points to ensure that new manager Sam Allardyce recorded his first victory since taking charge of the team towards the end of last year.
