Premier League club would rather sell £40m striker to Tottenham

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham’s interest in Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson seems to be gaining momentum with a recent boost in their pursuit.

The Independent reports that Nottingham Forest are apprehensive about selling Johnson to Brentford due to the latter being a direct rival in the league standings. Instead, the club might prefer to offload him to a team higher up in the table.

Nottingham Forest have reportedly slapped a £40 million price tag on the 22-year-old striker.

Earlier in the transfer window, Brentford had a £30 million bid rejected for Johnson. Tottenham and Chelsea have also emerged as interested parties in signing the Welsh international.

Whether Tottenham make a move for Johnson remains to be seen considering they are being strongly linked with a move for Gent’s Gift Orban.

Over the last couple of days, the reports have gained momentum and it seems that Spurs are expected to make a formal move anytime.

Alasdair Gold has also confirmed Tottenham’s interest in the 21-year-old stating that the club are aware that they will need to swoop in quickly if they want to secure his signing because otherwise other clubs would get in there and get him straight away.

Adding to Nottingham Forest’s situation are financial concerns related to adhering to Financial Fair Play regulations.

This predicament could potentially lead them to consider offloading Johnson at a reduced fee.

The pressure to raise funds before the end of the transfer window could influence their decision-making process.
