With all the money Tottenham have around after letting Harry Kane leave, it seemed strange for them not to sign a suitable replacement for the man who scored more goals in team history to this date. The team's up and coming start, along with Richarlison's lack of goals, have forced the team's hand to hire another striker, although it will not be an easy task.
Sources close to the team have hinted that Ange Postecoglou and his staff have asked their employers to seek the transfer of Brennan Johnson, one of Nottingham Forest's best players last season. Johnson has scored 29 goals in 108 games for Nottingham, and being 22 at the moment, he is seen as a long-term solution to Tottenham's goalscoring problem.
According to reports, Nottingham would be open to negotiate his exit for no less than $60M, but that may not be the only roadblock to see Johnson joining the North London side.
The same report hints that Johnson has also attracted the interest of Mauricio Pochettino, who would love to lure the footballer to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have lured some of their rivals' transfer targets to their roster this summer, and pulling off a move of this sort against Tottenham would not be strange. Even so, it will all depend on what Nottingham are planning for their striker, mainly because his exit would be quite a shock to most.
The Tricky Trees need to balance their financial sheets following the spending spree that kept them in the Premier League, but parting ways with Johnson may not be the way to go if they want to stay among the top teams in England for a second season in a row.
