Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tottenham still have other backup options in case a deal for Brennan Johnson does not materialise.
Apart from Johnson, it was alleged that Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and PSV Eindhoven’s Johan Bakayoko were also on the Lilywhites’ wishlist.
Spurs have contingency plans just in case
Romano has now told Kick Streaming (30/08/23) that Johnson remains Tottenham’s priority target, with the Wales international’s signing having been approved by Ange Posteocoglou himself.
However, the journalist added that the North London club are still ready to turn to other options if they are unable to strike a deal for the 22-year-old.

It appears as if PSV’s Bakayoko and Porto’s Pepe could be the alternatives that Tottenham have in mind for Johnson but I fully expect the club to get a deal for Wales international over the line before the transfer window, even if Forest stand firm on their £50m valuation.
