West Brom have set a £10million asking price for West Ham and Tottenham target Sam Johnstone.

With the Baggies nine points adrift in the battle against relegation before Thursday's game against Leicester, the in-demand goalkeeper faces an uncertain future at the Hawthorns.

Unless Sam Allardyce can mastermind a miracle and keep West Brom up, it looks certain that Johnstone will leave the club in the summer and Standard Sport understands a fee of £10m would be enough.

Tottenham have shown interest in Johnstone, with captain Hugo Lloris a target for former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain.

The French international has a very close relationship with the ex-Spurs boss, and once said: "My future is linked to Mauricio's, that is a certainty. He matters a lot to me and our relationship goes beyond football – it is a partnership."

Lloris's contract in north London runs until 2022, but a move this summer cannot be ruled out.

West Ham are also interested in adding another goalkeeper to their ranks this summer.

First choice Lukasz Fabianski, 36, signed a one-year extension running until the end of next season but has endured injury problems of late. His back-up at the London Stadium is 33-year-old Darren Randolph and 35-year-old David Martin, who is out of contract at the end of this season.

However, West Ham have more pressing priorities in the transfer market. A permanent deal for loanee Jesse Lingard sits top of David Moyes’ in-tray, along with bringing in a new striker - with Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri and Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah on his wishlist.

Should, as expected, West Ham qualify for Europe, cover in midfield would also be required.

Johnstone has kept six clean sheets in the Premier League this season and was part of Gareth Southgate's most recent England squad.

When recently asked about the 28-year-old's future, West Brom manager Sam Allardyce said: “We can only discuss that when we have secured our position as a Premier League club.

“That would mean discussion from the hierarchy at the club and look at what they can do with Sam’s contract and try to persuade him to stay.

“As usual, business is business. Whatever happens can only be decided then, but I think the club would do their very best to keep him.”
