Chris Basham was their player of the year 2020.

Ramsdale was at Bournemouth in 2020.

Football 365 is citing various "reports" that West Ham have offered £11m for Johnstone.

Assuming it's true and the deal offered is structured agreeably, I'd be accepting that all day long. We can't be dithering with our preparations if we want to go back up this season, and this money would help to bring in more than one player that we're really in need of.

Regrettably one of the sources is dear old football insider therefore has zero basis in reality this may come to pass but that will be wholly coincidental and should not be seen as evidence that football insider knows anything.

Anything North of ten is a no-brainer for me.

Spurs have signed Gollini, once of Villa and more recently Atalanta. Probably will be number two to Lloris for this season.

Scratch Spurs off thenlsit for possible destinations for Sam

It's really closing up for him now. There will still be clubs out there but we need to be careful not to price him out of a move. Then again, you would think there would be atleast 1 club interested given the fact it isn't a huge fee.

So our eggs are in the basket of West Ham and Arsenal doing a u-turn on Ramsdale..

I still think he moves to West Ham for 10-12mil. The psg deal was just to unsettle us a bit as there ain’t many clubs he can go to. Last year of contract, once it gets to the last week of the window I think we will accept a 10mil bid with add ons.

Whilst all the clubs know its the last year of his contract, they are not to know that some other club might nip in end of the season. So from their point of view, there is a big advantage in doing their business now.

West Ham are in serious financial straits with Gold and Sullivan looking to offload shares to generate cash,   I wouldnt hold my breath on them weighing in with decent bids

In my opinion he will go to West Ham for 10 mill with add ons adding up to 12 mill and I would be happy with that.

The ExWHUEmployee on twitter who is very reliable is saying that a deal has been agreed for them to sign Areola on loan with an option to buy. Wonder where this leaves Sam?

Yes that seems to be confirmed now. Having his medical today.

Arsenal for Sam I think.

Cross West Ham off the Johnstone suitor list it really requires Arsenal to something sensible with regard to a transfer and that is always a somewhat forlorn hope.

I'm really worried about this situation. We're obviously dependent on money being generated by MP and Johnstone if we are to reinvest in the squad - just take a look at the bench. It's so, so weak.

If we're going to struggle to sell him, I'm pretty certain he will not sign a new contract. There are not many - if any - benefits of him staying.

Arsenal are too much of a basket case, they would sooner spend three times as much on a worse keeper in Ramsdale.

West Ham were the wrong club from our point of view.  They might stretch for MP but I couldn't see them giving us £35 - £40m for both.  Unless they sell Rice, they just don't have the money.

I would take £6m now for SJ.  I really think we need to get him out of the club.  He will be very disappointed if he's stuck with us in the Championship, plus we need the money.

Ramsdale is better than Johnstone unfortunately.

Are you joking? On what grounds is he a better keeper? There is a reason Johnstone was above him in the England pecking order.

I think he could still be here this season. If Arsenal pursue Ramsdale i can't think of any other club who need another keeper.
