Spurs: A “handful” of £50 million might render Maddison useless.
By adding this £50 million “handful” to their roster, the Lilywhites may create a strong attacking tandem.
While the Premier League season has resumed, Tottenham Hotspur has had a temporary transfer break. However, they may be about to make a big splash by signing another attacker to support the hoped-for durability of the new reign.
Who else may Tottenham Hotspur be able to bring in this summer?
Ange Postecoglou has been in his position for about three months, and he has already had a significant impact on the north London side.
His transfer operations have changed the mindset and makeup of a team that is still hurting from last season’s debacle, as eight new recruits have been made, including converting some loans into permanent deals. However, in just two league games, his impact has been equally as significant, as evidenced by their strong performances against Brentford and Manchester United.
However, after seeing a few competitive games, the Australian manager might want to add some fresh faces to the group of players who have already made an impression to increase their chances of continuing to shine.
The Daily Mail claims Spurs are preparing a bid for the Nottingham Forest winger, Brennan Johnson, and it seems obvious that this is the case.
The Tricky Trees estimate his worth at roughly £50 million, but it is anticipated that Daniel Levy will work hard to reduce this.
How brilliant is Brennan Johnson?
Reiterating what I said previously, James Maddison would probably gain the most from the addition of such a dynamic, quick winger considering how well he has performed since his June transfer.
Many people may have been skeptical of the £40 million price tag for his signing with Leicester City, given that his team had just been demoted.
He has started to make up for it in his first two league games, though.
His two assists, 86% pass accuracy, 74.5 touches per game, 1.5 tackles, and four critical passes per game, according to Sofascore, help him average a 7.90 rating.
Johnson will pay close attention to the latter individual in particular and is likely to notice every scything run in the rear that the former Midlands inventor discovers.
In addition to this, his average number of touches also favors his ability to have an impact wherever on the field, indicating that as long as the 22-year-old speedster keeps making the runs, he will nearly always be augmented.
In an effort to highlight the wide receiver’s speed, journalist Ethan Lamb wrote: “Brennan Johnson has registered the fast speed in the Premier League this season at 36.7km/h. Demon of speed.
He was described as a “special, special player” by fellow author Louis Wheeldon, which is hardly surprising.
To think, if he were to play with Maddison, his stats from the previous year, when he scored eight goals and provided three assists for a Forest team that narrowly escaped the drop, may soar.
As the space Johnson’s mere presence would offer may prove disastrous if it is the 26-year-old who takes it up, the danger that such an energetic play style would bring could even assist lift the attacking midfielder to loftier heights.
If he turns out to be the “real handful” that journalist Antonio Mango claimed he was under Postecoglou, keeping defenders on their toes with his speed and ever-improving technical skill, he could not only serve as a fine outlet for Maddison to increase his numbers creatively, but also stretch defenses so that the midfielder can pop up in dangerous areas to score more as well.
