In a transfer saga that’s been heating up this summer, Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly ready to make their move for Nottingham Forest’s rising star, Brennan Johnson.
The Welsh sensation, whose market value is hovering around £50 million, has been the subject of intense speculation, with Brentford’s advances falling short despite offers crossing the £35 million mark.
But it’s not just Brentford that has been circling Johnson; Premier League heavyweights Chelsea and West Ham have also been contemplating bids for the 22-year-old.
However, amidst this competitive tussle for his signature, insiders suggest that Johnson’s heart is leaning firmly towards the lilywhite side of North London, according to the Daily Mail.
Tottenham, now grappling with the aftermath of Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich, is on a determined quest to bolster their attacking prowess and they believe Johnson fits this mold perfectly.
Nottingham Forest, faced with the challenge of meeting their transfer targets, might be willing to engage in a player-plus-cash deal with Tottenham.
Center back Davinson Sanchez has emerged as one of the potential pieces in this intricate puzzle. While there’s talk of other fringe players being part of the equation, fitting into Forest’s wage structure remains a crucial aspect of any potential deal.
