Tottenham to recruit side striker Brennan Johnson…Son Heung-min as a forward striker?
Tottenham said on its website on the 2nd (Korea Standard Time), “The club has confirmed the recruitment of Welsh national striker Johnson from Nottingham Forest.” The uniform number is 22, and the contract period is six years until 2029,” it said
Details of the contract have not been announced, but local media estimate the transfer fee to be 45 million pounds (about 78.9 billion won).
Growing up in Nottingham since his youth, Johnson was the team’s franchise star and flagship striker. He scored 18 goals and 9 assists in 49 games in the English Championship in the 2021-22 season, receiving great attention and helping the team grow. He also won the championship Young Player of the Year award for the season.
In addition, the Welsh national team has been called up to the Welsh A national team in 2020 after going through the national team by age, and is called the “future of Welsh football.”
Johnson is a winged striker and is considered to be good at connecting the game, although he is placed on the side. Therefore, in Tottenham, if Johnson takes the side, Son Heung-min will move to the front line as necessary and become a two-top option with Hishalisson.
So far this season, Tottenham has focused on connections, with Son Heung-min topping the key pass for two consecutive games on the side, filling the vacancy where Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) left.
Meanwhile, Johnson was also named in the A-match Wales squad in September. As soon as Johnson and Son Heung-min joined the team, they met on September 8 as a bookkeeper for the national team.
