West Ham signing Sam Johnstone for absolutely nothing would be sensational business

Sky Sports reported a couple of days ago that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 28-year-old goalkeeper to the London Stadium when his contract expires at the Hawthorns in the summer.

Moyes has Lukasz Fabianski, Alphonse Areola and Darren Randolph to call upon.

David Martin is also at the club and we have talented youngsters Nathan Trott, Joseph Anang and Krisztián Hegyi coming though the ranks.

That could all change in the summer, however, with David Martin set to leave, Fabianski out of contract and Randolph facing an uncertain future at the London Stadium.

West Ham signing Sam Johnstone on a free would be incredibly smart business

Alphonse Areola will undoubtedly be signed on a permanent deal in the summer.

And if Randolph and Martin do leave, signing Johnstone for nothing would mean that we have to two class goalkeepers fighting it out for a first-team spot.

Lukasz Fabianski could even be kept around for another year.

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, the West Brom stopper cuts an imposing figure. He is dominant in the air and a great shot stopper. The Baggies ace is a very impressive communicator as well.

If West Ham can sign him in the summer, we will be a lot stronger next season.

Johnstone has conceded 400 goals in 342 career games and has kept 108 clean sheets in the process (Transfermarkt).

Signing him for absolutely nothing is a no-brainer for the Hammers. Let’s just hope that Moyes manages to get this one done.
