Tottenham Hotspur’s management has been diligent in their quest to bolster the squad following the departure of their iconic captain and record goal-scorer, Harry Kane, to Bayern Munich.
After much speculation, the club has chosen a successor in the form of Welsh forward Brennan Johnson, securing his services from Nottingham Forest for a substantial fee of £45 million.
This move addresses a pressing need for Coach Angelos Postecoglou, who has been seeking a viable option in the advanced forward position since Kane’s departure, with Brazilian star Richarlison being the only option on hand.
Brennan Johnson becomes Tottenham’s ninth acquisition in a busy summer transfer window. The 22-year-old has spent his entire professional career with his parent club, Nottingham, amassing an impressive record of 108 official appearances, during which he contributed 29 goals and 12 assists. Additionally, Johnson has represented the Welsh national team on 19 occasions.
Johnson joins a list of summer arrivals at Tottenham that includes Veliz Alejo, Micky Van de Ven, Ashley Phillips, Solomon Manor, Pedro Porro, Guglielmo Vicario, James Maddison, and Dejan Kulusevski, whose contract was acquired from Juventus. The London club is leaving no stone unturned in their efforts to rebuild and strengthen the team.
