Tottenham to agree stunning deal as Daniel Levy finally backs Ange Postecoglou with top transfer- sources

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou and chairman Daniel Levy both agree Brennan Johnson is a top transfer target as they look to bring the Nottingham Forest striker to north London before the transfer window shuts.

Following Harry Kane’s departure and the necessity to strengthen the strike force, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has made the Wales striker his top transfer target this summer.

Even though Postecoglou has been working with what he has, Spurs have won two and drawn one of their first three games of the new season. Postecoglou hasn’t hidden the possibility that they might sign a new player before the transfer market closes this Friday.

“I don’t think there is a like-for-like replacement for Harry, but in terms of a striker, fair to say we’ve been planning for this for a while,” the Australian manager added. We have been preparing for this to happen because it doesn’t take much research to see that it was going to happen.

“With that in mind, a lot of our business up to this point. From my perspective, this doesn’t significantly alter what we’re attempting to accomplish. The squad is still moving, without a doubt. We still have a sizable squad, therefore we must cut some players.

Ange Posetcoglou pushed for Johnson’s signing, and according to Tottenham reporters, chairman Levy has agreed and is prepared to push through a £50 million agreement to complete the transfer.

The Nottingham Forest striker was sought after by Chelsea, Manchester City, and even other teams, but it appears that Spurs will try to get him before the transfer season closes.

Tottenham were impressive in victory over Bournemouth on Saturday and captain Son Heung-min delivered his verdict on new signing James Maddison after the match

James Maddison scored his first goal for Tottenham on Saturday, opening the scoring against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. Taking the number ten shirt from Harry Kane, following his £100million departure to Bayern Munich, there is a lot of emphasis on Maddison to be the creative spark for Spurs this season.

Kane has, in the past few season, had to do much of the creative and goalscoring work himself, winning both the Golden Boot and the Playmaker award in the 2020/21 season – something which has never been achieved before.

Although it is expected that Maddison would also score goals, his signing was intended to be as a goal maker. And in just three Premier League games this season, he has already accomplished both.

Furthermore, as many Spurs fans would attest, Tottenham has found it difficult to fill the vacuum left by Christian Eriksen in 2020. Without Eriksen, Kane would have had to carry an undue weight because he frequently led the Premier League in assists.

It will be crucial that Maddison does not take on all of that pressure right now, but his presence on the team has been glaringly absent in previous years. Son Heung-min, the new captain, even acknowledged as much.

Son remarked following the victory over the Cherries: “Madders did a good job, but it doesn’t matter who scores, it’s really essential we’re all celebrating together, even if someone makes a great tackle or Vic (Guglielmo Vicario) makes a big save.

“We could stay here all day talking about Madders. For a couple of years we needed this kind of player, making and creating the passes and chances, which is very important and playing with him is a real joy and I hope he can assist and score many goals.”

Maddison’s signing was much-needed, but there are other players who can make headlines this season and Son was keen to focus on the team objective, rather than just Maddison, despite a fine performance on the south coast.
