Spurs targeting late move for Forest forward Johnson

Tottenham are targeting a late move for a right-winger with Nottingham Forest's Brennan Johnson high among their targets in the final week of the window.

Spurs want a player of Johnson's profile rather than a traditional centre-forward after the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich - and they have three options before the deadline.

Forest star Johnson is one of them but they face competition from Chelsea and Brentford, although none of these clubs want to pay more than the £40m Brentford offered for the Wales international earlier this summer.

Johnson was a standout performer for Forest last season as he scored eight goals and provided three assists to help the club avoid relegation.

The 22-year-old has started in all three of Forest's games so far this season but is yet to score.

Tottenham have made eight signings this summer at a total cost of £167.8m, with Micky van de Ven the most expensive recruit so far at £43m.
