Fabrizio Romano has given the typical ‘here we go’ to the signing of Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest to Tottenham Hotspur.
The two Premier League clubs are said to have reached an agreement, with Tottenham paying more than £40 million for their man. With add-ons, the complete package is claimed to be valued up to £45 million.
Brennan Johnson is on his way to Hotspur Way to finish his medical testing, though he was scheduled to fly to London anyhow because Forest play Chelsea away this weekend.
Brennan Johnson to Spurs gets the ‘here we go’
Johnson would be Tottenham’s eighth acquisition of the summer transfer window, following the permanent signings of Dejan Kulusevski and Pedro Porro, as well as James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, Micky Van de Ven, Alejo Veliz, Manor Solomon, and Ashley Phillips.
Tottenham play Burnley in the Premier League tomorrow afternoon, but it is unclear whether Johnson will be ready to make the matchday team so soon.
All that can be asked of a summer transfer window is for the manager to identify objectives and for the team to secure them. Whatever your opinion of the players is, Ange Postecoglou is getting the guys he wants, which is thrilling for Spurs fans everywhere.
Tottenham prepared to keep deal ‘bubbling away’ in background on deadline day.
Tottenham Hotspur are holding a deal for Conor Gallagher ‘bubbling away in the background’ for one major reason, according to Sky Sports writer Dharmesh Sheth, who spoke to GIVEMESPORT.
Gallagher has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, with Tottenham appearing to be the best placed to recruit him.
Tottenham Hotspur transfer news – Conor Gallagher
Ange Postecoglou has gone about his Spurs business well this window, bringing in the likes of James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, and Manor Solomon, among others, for an estimated £160 million.
However, as the transfer window nears its end, there is speculation that Spurs may continue to look for new players, with Gallagher surfacing as a surprise target.
Transfer analyst Dean Jones told GIVEMESPORT yesterday that Gallagher’s decision to join Spurs would be ’emotional’ considering his ties to current club Chelsea. Gallagher has just under 50 senior appearances for the Blues, and the Chelsea fans are unlikely to warm to a player moving from west London to the white side of north London.
However, it has been reported that Gallagher, who was subject to a £40 million proposal from West Ham earlier in the summer season, is a transfer target Spurs are willing to leave open, with the possibility of making a deal later in the day.
What has Dharmesh Sheth said about Conor Gallagher and Tottenham Hotspur?
When asked about Gallagher’s planned move to Tottenham, Sky Sports reporter Sheth stated, “Gallagher is an interesting one.” While the emphasis at Tottenham is on departures, the club is also keeping an eye on incomings.
“I’ve been told that there is interest in Gallagher and that they are looking into the possibility of doing a deal on deadline day, but it will depend on departures.”
“So I believe what will end up happening is that they will keep that one bubbling away in the background, ready to go with a potential deal for Gallagher at any time during deadline day.”
“Because time is of the essence now, Tottenham probably believes they can do a good deal and get a favorable deal because they’re leaving at this late.”
According to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, Spurs may potentially make a late approach for Iran international Mehdi Taremi after his move to AC Milan fell through.
Taremi is rumoured to desire to leave his present club Porto, while Tottenham are supposed to be keeping the option of signing a striker open after saying farewell to Harry Kane earlier in the year.
Meanwhile, journalist Ben Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT that a deal for Nottingham Forest’s Brennan Johnson is’moving forward’ at a steady clip.
