Tottenham Hotspur could make a move for Nottingham Forest star Brennan Johnson this summer as they attempt to replace Harry Kane.
The Wales international has been one of the most exciting players in the Tricky Trees squad and was instrumental in helping them avoid relegation last season.
However, they could lose him this summer, with at least three clubs interested, including West Ham, Chelsea and Tottenham. Nottingham Forest, who have already rejected offers over £35m from Brentford this window for Johnson, value him around £50 million.
Chelsea and West Ham have also been considering bids for the 22-year-old flyer. But according to Sportsmail, his preference is Tottenham. The Welshman believes he will have a greater chance of playing regularly and establishing himself at the North London side.
Tottenham have discussed the possibility of signing him and are readying an offer that could include players, considering that Forest are struggling to land all of their targets.
Defender Davinson Sanchez is one possibility, though Tottenham are willing to trade several other fringe players if they can fit into Forest’s wage structure.
Ange Posteclogue’s side want an extra goal threat following the sale of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich. They want pace, too and believe Johnson has the right profile to fit their system and play across the front line.
