Tottenham Hotspur are now closing in on the capture of Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest.
According to a report from Daily Mail, the two clubs have now ‘agreed a deal in principle’ for the 22-year-old attacker.
Spurs will be paying a fee of around £45 million for the Nottingham Forest star and the two clubs are currently discussing bonus payments involved in the transfer.
Apparently, the north London outfit had previously failed with a £40 million offer to sign the player, and it seems that they have now come back with an improved offer which is acceptable for Nottingham Forest.
The report further states that Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou is ‘a big fan’ of the 22-year-old attacker, who is versatile enough to operate in a number of positions across the pitch.
Johnson will add pace, flair and goals to the Tottenham attack and he is likely to improve further with coaching and experience. The 22-year-old is highly rated in England and he has a big future ahead of him.
Joining a big club like Tottenham and playing alongside top-class players at the north London club will accelerate his development.
Johnson chipped in with 10 goals across all competitions last season and his numbers are likely to improve in an attacking system at Tottenham. Spurs have looked quite efficient going forward this season and Johnson is likely to enjoy his football under Postecoglou’s management. The Australian prefers a free-flowing attacking approach and it is no surprise that he has decided to spend big money on a quality young attacker.
