After missing out on Barcelona star Ansu Fati, who is close to joining Brighton & Hove Albion, Tottenham will now concentrate on Brennan Johnson.
Spurs are still hunting for a new forward to fill the big void Harry Kane left when he signed with Bayern Munich earlier this month. While Fati would have been nice, it seems that Johnson is currently the major goal.
Tottenham, having missed out on Ansu Fati, will make an offer for Brennan Johnson.
For a number of weeks, Brennan Johnson has been associated with Tottenham.
The North Londoners were forced to sign a replacement for Kane this summer, and the Nottingham Forest star was seen to be a great pick.
Johnson is reportedly Ange Postecoglou’s top target, but yesterday Tottenham decided to make a surprise deal to sign Ansu Fati from Barcelona.
Even though a deal seemed to be in the works, Brighton entered the picture at the very last minute, and it now seems as though they will sign the talented young Spaniard.
The ‘devastating’ Johnson is still a target for Tottenham, according to The Daily Mail, and they intend to make a last-minute offer to sign him before the transfer market closes tomorrow.
Even if Brentford is supposedly still interested in signing him, Spurs might have a better chance of doing so if they spend a lot of money.
Brennan Johnson excels at sports.
Although Ansu Fati, who was previously called the “new Lionel Messi,” doesn’t have the same hype, the 22-year-old is very familiar with the Premier League and would require far less time to adjust to life at Spurs.
Because Brentford is reportedly back in the picture after backing out of the arrangement, things do become more complicated, according to the story.
However, Spurs should be able to sign their desired player before the transfer deadline provided they match Forest’s asking price.
Football transfer rumours: Spurs to make deadline move for Eberechi Eze?
Clubs must act quickly because the summer transfer window, which ends on Friday at 11 p.m. BST, is running out of time. Deals that fall through may leave squads and balance sheets lacking what is needed.
Tottenham is considering alternatives after their attempt to sign Brennan Johnson failed. Eberechi Eze of Crystal Palace is one winger that would be a good fit, but the Eagles will struggle to keep hold of their star player. Ansu Fati is a different candidate after hearing that he could leave Barcelona for greener pastures. Brighton, on the other hand, may have beaten Spurs to the punch and might sign the winger on loan.
In the next 48 hours, West Ham wants to improve their striker options, and Hugo Ekitiké of Paris Saint-Germain is in talks. The French forward might move to London before the transfer window closes and is available on loan or a permanent basis; Eintracht Frankfurt, Brentford, and Crystal Palace are also interested. The 22-year-old Yuri Alberto is a player that the Hammers are also attempting to acquire through negotiations with the Brazilian club Corinthians. Jesse Lingard, a former midfielder for the Hammers, has proven his value in training since leaving Nottingham Forest this summer, and David Moyes is set to extend him a short-term contract as well. Ronnie Edwards of Peterborough is another target for West Ham and their skilled negotiators. Edwards will unavoidably be available for the right price.
Tanguy Ndombele, a midfielder who is not in Ange Postecoglou’s plans for north London, is expected to make a second season-long move to Italy after Tottenham and Genoa began discussing a loan agreement. With Internazionale asking about the Spurs player’s availability, there may be another alternative.
The Manchester United midfield could certainly need some reinforcements, but they don’t appear overly willing to shell out the cash.Erik ten Hag’s top aim is Sofyan Amrabat, but Fiorentina wants £30 million to let their player go, and United is only willing to pay a handshake.
Relegation doesn’t help most clubs much, but Southampton has had a great summer selling their stars. Armel Bella-Kotchap, a defender, is the most recent player to draw significant financial interest. He is sought after by not one, but two German superpowers in the form of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Speaking of Bayern, they wouldn’t mind spending €60 million for Joo Palhinha of Fulham.
Ryan Gravenbach is one midfielder who might leave the Allianz Arena after Bayern started talking to Liverpool about a potential trade. The Premier League and playing for Jürgen Klopp may tempt the Dutchman, who has never been a regular in Germany.
Galatasaray is trying to bolster their talent after advancing to the Champions League group stages. Donny van de Beek of Manchester United, who has been trying to go for a while now without success, is one person cited in reports. The Ligue 1 team Lorient has offered to loan the Dutch player for the season, so the Dutchman does have a choice. Teden Mengi, a fellow member of the United team, is expected to join Luton, and Sevilla and Anderlecht are interested in Hannibal Mejbri.
Despite their goal drought, Everton is still willing to let promising striker Tom Cannon leave for Norwich in exchange for £7 million. After playing for Preston the previous season, the striker is well-versed in the Championship.
