Manchester United's Dean Henderson and West Brom's Sam Johnstone are being eyed by Spurs as the north London club continue their search for a successor to Hugo Lloris.

The 34-year-old is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and could bring to an end his ten-season spell at Tottenham.

90min revealed recently that Antonio Conte has asked the club to sign a new goalkeeper regardless of Lloris' future, with Ajax's Andre Onana a personal favourite of the Italian coach.

And the Daily Mail report that the club have also been alerted to the situations of England internationals Henderson and Johnstone.

Henderson has remained second fiddle to David de Gea at Man Utd this season - 90min understands the former has asked to leave on a permanent transfer - while Johnstone is the standout goalkeeper in the Championship and still a favourite of England boss Gareth Southgate.

It had been reported last week that Spurs were also keen on Jordan Pickford. Everton are reluctant to let the Three Lions goalkeeper go, but Financial Fair Play rules could force them into a sale - the Toffees were only able to spend £1.8m in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham do already have an experienced backup goalkeeper in Italy international Pierluigi Gollini, who signed on an initial loan deal from Atalanta in the summer. But he's failed to live up to expectations in his rare outings so far this season, keeping two clean sheets in seven Europa Conference League and EFL Cup games.
