According to Football Insider, Brennan Johnson has told his friends that he is keen on completing a move to Tottenham Hotspur before the transfer window closes.

We previously relayed a report from 90 min which revealed that Spurs had moved into pole position to sign Johnson, whose head was said to have been turned by the North London club’s interest.

The publication revealed that even though the attacking midfielder was not agitating for an exit, he is keen on joining the Lilywhites and working with Ange Postecoglou.

Spurs working on a late deal for Brennan Johnson

Football Insider have now suggested that Johnson has also informed those close to him about his intention to join Tottenham.

The report says that Spurs have been ‘keeping close tabs’ on the versatile attacker for a long time and their scouts have been hugely impressed by the player.

The 22-year-old is said to be keen on progressing his career by moving to a top club before the transfer deadline.

However, it is explained that while Tottenham are working on the deal to sign Johnson, an agreement is a ‘long way off’, with Forest demanding upwards of £45m for the Wales international.

I fully expect this deal to be done before the window slams shut as there is willingness on all sides to finalise a transfer. Postecoglou seemingly rates Johnson while the player is keen on the move. Forest also have to sell players to ensure they do not fall foul of FFP regulations.
