Chelsea are keen on West Bromwich Albion shot-stopper Sam Johnstone, according to Si Phillips.
He will be a free agent this summer’s transfer window and remains interested in returning to the Premier League.
At 28, the Englishman has ambitions to have a great career in the top flight, although he’ll firmly be the no.2 behind Edouard Mendy at Stamford Bridge in case of the departure of Kepa Arrizabalaga
In the summer, he was on the transfer wishlist of several clubs, including the Blues’ division and city rivals Arsenal.
it is unclear whether the player chose to continue with the Baggies or if they blocked any possible move for him.
Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United remain keen, while his ex-club Manchester United have also registered the desire to bring back the star.
Maybe he’ll be satisfied playing in cup ties and perhaps an odd game in the UEFA Champions League or the English top-flight throughout the season and this could be the main factor in Sam signing for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
However, a summer move to West London could still materialise depending on the club’s promises and the finances on offer.
