West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to claims surrounding the future of Sam Johnstone following reports that he could be on his way out of the club.
A number of clubs have reportedly shown an interest in the 28-year-old England international this summer following West Brom’s relegation from the Premier League, with the club reportedly setting their valuation for him at £20m.
However, a more recent report in The Athletic has claimed that the Baggies have slashed the asking price to just £12m, with his contract, which is set to expire next summer, reportedly playing a key part in their decision to try and shift him out of the club.
The report also states that the club have already earmarked David Button to be their No 1 next season, further emphasising the need to try and cash in on him whilst they can.
The news was relayed to fans by @WBAReport on social media, where it certainly garnered a lot of reaction:
“£20m was too much for someone with one year left on his contract, easily worth £12m though”
Do you think West Brom should cash in on Sam Johnstone this summer?
With just 39 days to go until the end of the transfer window, it certainly does look like it’s going to be an interesting transfer saga to keep track of moving forward.
