‘No disrespect…’ – Pundit rates potential Spurs buy as Postecoglou needs cover

Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson would provide good cover for Tottenham’s attack, according to a former Premier League goalkeeper.

Over the past week or two, Spurs and Chelsea have both been mentioned in connection with the Welsh international.

The Londoners are planning their opening offer for the 22-year-old, according to Fabrizio Romano’s report from Monday.

This week, Tottenham is preparing to contact Nottingham Forest about Brennan Johnson, according to Romano’s tweet.

“This prospective action has already received Angel Postecoglou’s approval. Although Forest has already turned down significant approaches, Brennan is now attracting more attention.

Another team thought to be interested in Johnson is Brentford, which last summer submitted two offers to Nottingham Forest that were turned down.

The Bees reportedly made a club-record signing bid of £35 million, but eventually were unsuccessful in their pursuit of the star.

According to rumours, they have since focused on Nico Gonzalez of Fiorentina.

Although he can also play on the left, where Spurs captain Heung-min Son plays, Johnson would be added to the lineup to contend with Dejan Kulusevski for a spot on the right wing.

He can play across the middle, which is a position Ange Postecoglou ought to look to strengthen in the wake of the transfer of Harry Kane.

And former Chelsea and Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has told Sky Sports that he thinks Johnson would be a solid addition in north London.

“I think he’ll be a good signing. They need cover. And this is no disrespect to Richarlison. But they need some cover. They need to have a little bit more options,” Bosnich said.

“Overall, I believed Richarlison performed admirably during the weekend.

It is quite difficult to replace someone who has been a true club legend and one of the best in the world for a significant amount of time when you first start playing.

“Ange is a versatile player. It is always based on the type of players he has available. He would have a lot more possibilities as a result, in my opinion.

But if they don’t also capture him, it won’t be the end of the world. They can always wait until the midseason transfer window and do nothing.
