Good news for Tottenham fans as rival Premier League club pulls out of talks for forward

Tottenham are preparing to begin talks with Nottingham Forest for Brennan Johnson and the North London club have been given a boost as one of their Premier League rivals have pulled out of discussions. 

This week, Forest rejected a bid from Brentford for the 22-year-old player worth £43 million with add-ons and a sell-on clause. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Bees have now stopped talking about a deal because they want to concentrate on other objectives.

This is wonderful news for Tottenham, who have already held fruitful discussions on the player’s side and are ready to start discussions with Forest about Johnson.

Spurs want to use some of the funds they received in exchange for Harry Kane to buy a forward, and it appears that a deal for Johnson could cost more than £50 million.

Although the Wales international would be a risk for Tottenham to sign, the Nottingham Forest star has a lot of potential and is still very young. It is still unclear if an agreement can be reached because it appears like it may stretch all the way to Deadline Day.

Before this week’s deadline, it would appear that any deal to transfer Ansu Fati from Barcelona to Tottenham Hotspur would be quite difficult.

That is as a result of the two teams being valued very differently.

The details of X were revealed by journalist Ben Jacobs in a protracted recording.

Jacobs claimed that Tottenham had evaluated Fati and made their own assessment.

A contract has not yet been reached because Barcelona would demand a much, much larger sum.

According to what I hear from internal discussions, Tottenham has looked and believes that there is a ballpark valuation of around £45 million.

Aston Villa has looked into it, and even some other teams, like Manchester United, have held internal meetings leading up to the window, more for the sake of due diligence than anything else.

“They were estimating 35 to 40 million euros, but Barcelona would be looking at 70 to 80 to 90 million euros, which seems astronomical, but that is what they believe the player could be worth and that is why a deal hasn’t been done.”

Jacobs said that he would be shocked if a deal were to close in the last few days of the window.

Tottenham and Barcelona have a big gap in their valuation for Fati

This information doesn’t appear to be a major setback for Tottenham or their supporters.

The club appears to be moving forward with a £50 million transfer for Brennan Johnson of Nottingham Forest.

And given the similarity of their positions, it is likely that Fati might have been an option to Johnson.

Alongside Johnson, you would anticipate any new forward to be a more conventional number nine.

It’s obvious that Tottenham still has tasks they want to finish before the deadline this week.

In advance of the arduous season ahead, Ange Postecolgou appears confident in the type of profile that will help his team.

And none of those plans are expected to change as a result of the disparity in prices between Tottenham and Barcelona for Fati.

Whilst some fans may be disappointed that it now seems unlikely that Fati will be a Spurs player, they probably wouldn’t want to see their club paying up to £77m.
