Brentford submit improved offer for Tottenham target Brennan Johnson

Brentford have submitted a new offer for Nottingham Forest forward Brennan Johnson, according to the Daily Mail.

After seeing their first two bids rejected, there was a brief period where it seemed they had moved on.

However, they have returned with a third offer for the 22-year-old attacker as we approach the final days of the transfer market.

Brentford have re-entered the race for the versatile forward as Tottenham Hotspur ramped up negotiations.

Spurs are interested in bolstering Ange Postecoglou’s squad with the addition of Johnson. They lead the race for his signature, but Brentford will go toe-to-toe with them.

Brentford’s last offer was around £30 million, but their latest offer is closer to £40m. Forest and Tottenham are negotiating, and the latter will make a formal bid later this week.

If Spurs and Brentford strike a deal with Forest for Johnson, he will likely choose the prospect of playing under Postecoglou, who has earned rave reviews since he arrived in the Premier League this summer.

After losing pivotal figures in attack, both clubs must reinforce their attacking options.

Brentford have missed the massive presence of Ivan Toney following his eight-month ban for breaching the FA’s betting rules. 

Toney’s 20 goals and four assists played a crucial role in Brentford’s excellent campaign last season. 

However, he will not return to the pitch until January, and there are no guarantees he will stay at the club, with top Premier League clubs fighting for his signature

Tottenham sold Harry Kane to Bayern Munich and need to add firepower. They have relied on Richarlison to lead the line, but he is yet to score this season.

It remains to be seen if Forest will accept Brentford’s new bid and how it will affect talks with Spurs. The Tricky Trees want close to £50m and will hope for a bidding war.
