Arsenal fans react to Sam Johnstone enquiry reports
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Athletic claiming that the Gunners have made an enquiry for Sam Johnstone.
Meanwhile, there has also been speculation surrounding Bernd Leno’s future at the Emirates.
And one of those on their radar is Johnstone. The England international is wanted by a number of Premier League sides.
The Athletic notes that West Ham have had a bid for the 28-year-old rejected. Tottenham meanwhile, also want the West Brom star.
According to the report, Arsenal have made an enquiry as they consider alternative targets to Aaron Ramsdale.
‘Would be great’: Arsenal fans react to Johnstone enquiry reports
Despite being relegated last season, plenty of Gunners fans have taken to social media to suggest that they would welcome a move for Johnstone.
He was excellent for the Baggies. No goalkeeper in the top flight made more saves than Johnstone.
Some have implored Arteta and Edu to act before he heads elsewhere. They believe that he would be an excellent addition.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Arsenal fans have reacted to the links…
Sam Johnstone as #2 GK would be great! I would love to see him at Arsenal!

Would much prefer him than Ramsdale if they’d accept under £20m.

Arsenal should be all over this. Good keeper. Decent price

100% Mikel, snap him up easy work

Would love him as a backup for Leno’s last year or two.

Better than Leno

@Arsenal should get him somehow better than Ramsdale
