West Bromwich Albion are lining up a move for Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone with Ben Foster strongly linked with Watford, according to the Daily Mail.

It is thought around £5million would be enough to convince the Red Devils to sell Johnstone, who has impressed on loan in the Championship over the past 18 months with Aston Villa.

The Villans had wanted to make that move permanent themselves, but due to financial problems at the club they are not in the position to make that happen.

Foster, meanwhile, has been the subject of a rejected £1million bid from the Hornets, who are expected to come back with an improved offer for the Baggies stopper.

Competition for Johnstone

The 25-year-old United 'keeper has already shown he can shine in the second tier of English football and therefore should Swansea City consider a move for the former England Under-20 international?

Lukasz Fabianski of Swansea City cries as he leaves the pitch during the Premier League match between Swansea City and Stoke City at Liberty Stadium on May 13, 2018 in Swansea, Wales.

Like West Brom, the Swans have just been relegated from the Premier League and could also be in the market for a new option between the posts following the sale of Lukasz Fabianski to West Ham United.

At £5million, Johnstone represents a reasonably cheap option considering his age and experience and could be just what new manager Graham Potter needs following the departure of influential and popular Fabianski.
