And that has sparked a scramble for his services, with Spurs among the clubs that have made contact.

توتنهام boss Antonio Conte wants a back-up to No 1 and club skipper Hugo Lloris.

That is after telling on-loan Pierluigi Gollini that he will be returning to Atalanta.

Johnstone fits the bill in a season where Spurs hope to be back in the Champions League but will also be disrupted by the demands of the first winter World Cup.

Former Manchester United man Johnstone, 29, spent seven years on the Old Trafford books before joining the Baggies in 2018.

While his preference is first team football in the Prem, he is prepared to move as second choice for the right opportunity.

The Preston-born gloveman was a popular member of Gareth Southgate’s squad for Euro 2020 although he did not get off the bench.

But he is desperate to remain involved and add to his three caps ahead of the World Cup.

Johnstone has never hidden his ambition and believes he is ready to show he should be a Prem regular as well as propel himself up the England ladder.

And the interest from so many clubs means potential suitors risk missing out unless they make their move soon.
