Wolves look set to beat Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and Manchester City to the signing of Hibs‘ young goalkeeper Murray Johnson (Daily Record).

The teenager goalkeeper had been on trial at Manchester City recently while clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton were also keeping tabs on him. But it’s Wolves who look set to secure the promising talent’s signature.

£250,000 is believed to be the price for Jack Ross’ young keeper, who is on the verge of a move to the Premier League club. If completed, Johnson, who signed a new deal with Hibs this season, would move to Wolves in the summer.

There will be future incentives and add-ons built into the Wolves transfer as Hibs look to secure the best deal they can. Johnson has been training with Hibs’ first-team recently and Ross is already bracing for one goalkeeper departure in Ofir Marciano.

 

An Israeli international, the goalkeeper has stated his ambition to try and play Premier League football this week. Although his next steps are not known, Ross has confirmed Marciano’s contract rejection, with the keeper’s current deal expiring in the summer.
