Brennan Johnson was signed by Tottenham Hotspur toward the end of the transfer deadline day.
Alasdair Gold believes that this indicates that Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou is preparing a tactical change.
Johnson is a talented attacker who has experience in a range of roles while playing for Nottingham Forest.
While in the Midlands, the newcomer to Tottenham primarily played as a right winger and a second striker.
Only 18 of Johnson’s 109 competitive games with the team were center forward appearances (Transfermarkt).
The new Spurs player has experience playing on the left wing, in attacking midfield, and even central midfield.
Johnson is not a typical No. 9, thus he is not a direct substitute for Harry Kane.
According to Alasdair Gold, Son Heung-min might play a different position if Johnson joins Spurs.
The renowned journalist hosted a Tottenham Q&A on football.london on the day of the transfer deadline.
He was questioned by a fan if Ange Postecoglou would play Son in the center more regularly now that Johnson was there.
Absolutely,” Gold retorted.
“With the low crosses that come in the Postecoglou style, I believe Sonny would flourish through the middle.
The Spurs manager has said that he believes it has potential.
Losing Kane was obviously a huge blow, but the new Spurs manager has wasted no time in reshaping his ranks. Tottenham’s front line is now composed of numerous versatile players, which is key in the modern game. And the prospect of Son becoming the line-leader and receiving quality crosses is exciting. Tottenham have just begun a new era.

The final week of the summer transfer season has been tremendously active for Tottenham Hotspur.
Brennan Johnson appears to be on the way to Spurs, while Conor Gallagher may possibly be on their radar.
Tottenham has also made a number of outgoings, notably on the day of the transfer deadline.
Japhet Tanganga and Sergio Reguilon have both left Spurs on loan.
Reguilon has made a significant move by joining Manchester United through at least January.
The loan agreement for the Tottenham player features a break clause at the beginning of the following year, claims Sky Sports.
When Reguilon joined the Red Devils, Gary Neville voiced his amazement at the move.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, he said: “I have to say that I was a little bit surprised why were going for Reguilon.
“Of course we have the issue with Luke Shaw which means it is a stop gap and a temporary measure, they have left themselves short.”
Reguilon has long since outlived his usefulness at Tottenham. Since April 2022, he hasn’t participated in a competitive game with the Spurs.
The Tottenham fullback played 11 La Liga games while on loan at Atletico Madrid during the previous season.
Man United moved for the Spurs periphery player as a result of some concerns at left-back.
Due to injuries, Erik ten Hag is now playing without Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia for an extended length of time.
It’s intriguing that Spurs have made the decision to bolster a squad that may ultimately be a direct rival for the top four.
Nonetheless, The Athletic has reported that Man United will cover all of Reguilon’s wages, so Spurs will save money there.
