Despite recent acquisition: Postecoglou still has another striker in mind as possible Harry Kane replacement in next transfer window

Brennan Johnson may have been acquired by Tottenham for £47.5 million on deadline day, but Ange Postecoglou’s assault is far from complete. According to a reliable source, a significant offer for Brentford striker Ivan Toney is planned for January.

Prior to Saturday’s match against Burnley at Turf Moor, the Australian coach has had a strong start to his tenure at Tottenham, picking up seven points from his first three games. Tottenham may go to the top of the standings with a victory over the Clarets.

Johnson has a six-year contract with Tottenham, so he won’t be able to make his debut on Saturday, but his addition will give their assault another angle.

Postecoglou freely acknowledges that it will be nearly difficult to replace Harry Kane’s remarkable goal production after the England forward joined Bayern Munich for a deal that could reach £95 million.

Instead, the 58-year-old has chosen to handle the problem in a fairly dynamic manner by attempting to distribute the goals among his side. To that purpose, it will be expected that James Maddison, playing in a free role at No. 10, Heung-min Son, the new club captain, and Dejan Kulusevski, who will play on the wings, all contribute.

Richarlison’s performance thus far has been underwhelming, therefore Spurs will also be hoping for more from him. Postecoglou now has more choices to choose from, while Johnson is still an option to play up front.

Alasdair Gold, a Tottenham watcher, asserts that when the January transfer market opens, Tottenham would pursue its interest in Toney, the star for Brentford.

The England striker violated the FA’s betting rules, and is now serving an eight-month sentence. By the time that ban expires in January, he will only have 17 months left on his deal.

Spurs to raid Brentford for Ivan Toney, according to Gold

Toney has made it obvious that he wants to play at a higher level, therefore it’s possible that Brentford will have to think about selling him during the January transfer window.

Gold has now acknowledged that he sees a chance for Tottenham.

Gold explained why he thinks Postecoglou will make a play for the £80 million hitman during the winter transfer window in a Q&A.

As there will be from many clubs, there is unquestionably interest in the striker, according to Gold.

“I expect Spurs will be one of the teams looking closely in January. They’ll get a pretty close look when Toney returns from his ban against them.

After scoring an amazing 160 goals in 392 career appearances, Toney has a large following. 32 goals in 66 games in the Premier League demonstrate his ability to score at the highest level.

Declan Rice, a summer acquisition for Arsenal, agrees that Toney and Kane parallels are unavoidable.

In September of last year, Rice said of the player, “He’s kind of like Harry Kane in a way where he’s not just an out-and-out striker, he’s also a playmaker.”

Toney believes that Thomas Frank, the manager of Brentford, is well aware of his own plans to leave.

When asked if he is ready to depart, Toney responded on the Diary of a CEO podcast, “Whenever that time comes, so be it.” The best period of my career was during my time at Brentford, in my opinion.
