Tottenham line up move for £50m striker who’s faster than Haaland

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Nottingham Forest striker Brennan Johnson as a potential replacement for Harry Kane if the England captain is sold.

Forest boss Steve Cooper is reportedly reluctant to part with the talented attacker, but financial constraints and the need to balance the books may force them to consider offers.

Aston Villa and Brentford have also shown interest in signing Johnson, with the latter having already had a £35 million bid turned down by Forest.

The Welshman has impressed with his rapid speed, making him the fastest forward in the Premier League.

According to the Mirror, The Welshman is the fastest forward in the Premier League with a rapid speed of 36.70kmh.

Newcastle’s Anthony Gordon is second with 36.61kmh, Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez third with 36.53kmh and Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland fourth with 36.22kmh.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich’s attempts to sign Harry Kane have been unsuccessful so far, with their latest bid of £85 million rejected by Tottenham. However, the German club remains optimistic about bridging the gap to meet Tottenham’s valuation for the star striker.


If Tottenham manages to secure Brennan Johnson’s signature, they would be acquiring a top talent with a trajectory similar to that of Harry Kane at his boyhood club. The Welshman’s attributes are also said to bear similarities to those of Tottenham legend Gareth Bale.


As the transfer window nears its conclusion, the situations surrounding both Brennan Johnson and Harry Kane will be closely monitored by fans and observers. Tottenham fans will be hopeful that the club can secure the talents of Johnson while also finding a resolution to the ongoing saga involving Harry Kane’s potential transfer to Bayern Munich.
