Tottenham now getting closer to signing ‘magnificent’ player, talks well underway

According to reports, Tottenham Hotspur is moving closer to acquiring Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest before the deadline on Friday.

The Times, a news source, asserts that negotiations between Forest and Spurs are progressing.

Following Harry Kane’s departure, Tottenham is intensifying their efforts to give Ange Postecoglou another attacking alternative.

Throughout the summer transfer window, Spurs have been associated with a wide range of players, but they appear to be prioritizing a move for Brennan Johnson.

Tottenham is prepared to speed up its pursuit of Johnson, according to a recent report in The Daily Mail.

And it appears that they are getting ever-closer to signing the 22-year-old to a contract with Nottingham Forest.

Tottenham getting closer to Johnson deal

According to The Times, an agreement on a £50 million contract to sign Johnson is nearing completion.

According to rumors, Johnson would rather move to North London and team up with Ange Postecoglou than sign with Brentford.

In fact, Forest is sure that Spurs will meet their demands for the Welsh forward, and as part of the agreement, players may relocate to the City Ground.

Davinson Sanchez is one of the players that might move to Forest to work with Steve Cooper in this regard.

Johnson was Forest’s top performance last season, helping to keep Cooper’s team in the Premier League.

The Welsh forward registered 11 goal contributions in the Premier League and seems like a good fit for Postecoglou’s system at Spurs.

Johnson, a’magnificent’ player who has received praise, would be an interesting choice for Postecoglou at Tottenham.

The Forest player has demonstrated his ability to play in all three front positions and boasts traits that could let him flourish under the direction of the Australian manager.

But if he decides to go to North London, he will undoubtedly need to improve his final product.

Ian Wright thinks Richarlison needs to ‘calm down’ if he wants to find his goalscoring form for Tottenham.

Ange Postecoglou’s side recorded a 2-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday, with Richarlison starting for the third Premier League game in a row, but failing to score.

Wright told Premier League Productions (28/08/23 at 2:40 pm) that it has been a tremendous challenge for Tottenham’s club-record signing and that he thinks he is ‘trying too hard’.

It’s still early under Postecoglou, so he needs to focus on the fact that he isn’t costing his side anything. Peter Schmeichel believes he has changed since being released by Everton.

Yes, the 26-year-old’s first season at Hotspur Way was a failure, but it was because the team was in decline and the coach had a defensive mindset.

It won’t be long before he is scoring again, according to Wright, with an attack-minded coach again in charge at Hotspur Way and a revamped starting XI.

“I think you can have the Richarlison who went to Everton when he started to really do his thing if you can get Brennan Johnson with Richarlison up front,” said Brennan Johnson.

“Then, perhaps, you can coax those 10–12 goals from him; I believe Richarlison is exerting too much effort. Just let him settle down. No Harry Kane is present. Since they lack a center-forward, you must maintain your fitness in order to play.

“So, stay calm. You probably might need the manager to say ‘just relax and play. I am going to play you in the games’, then he will just build himself into the games.”

Tottenham to bring in Brennan Johnson?

Spurs are vying for the Nottingham Forest star, and Wright has already explained why he believes the Welsh player will be the ‘ideal’ addition.

Although Johnson can play in any of the front three positions, he prefers to play down the middle or on the right.

In either case, if the Forest academy standout does sign on, that adds another name to the attacking line and increases the pressure on Richarlison.
