Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United and West Ham are all reportedly looking for West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone. ESPN.
The Baggies look destined for relegation, but John Stones appears to have a shot at being a Premier League player next season, no matter what.
Johnstone could be listed for as little as £10m in the summer, the report said.
That’s because he had just one year left on his West Brom contract at the time – and their relegation could increase the pressure on them to sell.

Reports say Tottenham are leading the race for Johnstone and see him as someone who could challenge Hugo Lloris.
They signed Joe Hart in the summer, but he has been a backup option.
John Stones will raise the home quota and Tottenham are currently at the limit of attention.
Leeds have Ilan Meslier, but could find him a solid second-in-command or competition, while Kiko Casilla is a liability and appears ready to quit in the summer.

Lukasz Fabianski has been a good servant for West Ham, but he’s not getting any younger and it makes sense for the Hammers to start looking to the future.
Darren Randolph isn’t the long-term answer either, and David Moyes may be able to provide John Stones with more first-team football guarantees than he’s had at Spurs or Leeds.
The £10m asking price was very attractive ahead of a window in which the impact of the pandemic was still evident in terms of funds available for relocation.
Johnstone was recently called up to the England squad and will need to stay in the Premier League if he wants to be called up again next season.
