Nottingham Forest: Newcastle keen on signing Brennan Johnson

Nottingham Forest: Newcastle keen on signing Brennan Johnson -Nottingham Forest News

Newcastle United have emerged as contenders to sign Nottingham Forest youngster Brennan Johnson this summer, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Johnson shines for Forest

Steve Cooper’s side are enjoying an excellent season, with promotion to the Premier League far from out of the question and an impressive run in the FA Cup also capturing the hearts of both Reds fans and neutrals.

Amid a host of strong performers, Johnson has arguably been his side’s star man in 2021/22, scoring 11 goals and registering six assists in the Championship.

The 20-year-old’s performances, hailed as ‘wonderful’ by Wales manager Robert Page, have led to interest from top-flight clubs,  and now another rumour is doing the rounds.

Will Nottingham Forest get promoted this season?





The Latest: Newcastle eye up move

According to The Daily Mail, Newcastle are interested in acquiring Johnson’s signature this summer, following their big-money takeover last October.

The Forest hero is among the player ‘being discussed’ by the £320billion-worth owners of the Magpies, as Eddie Howe looks to make serious inroads in the transfer market.

The Verdict: Promotion key for Forest?

Forest’s hopes of keeping hold of Johnson may well hinge on whether or not they seal promotion, with the youngster now surely feeling he is a top-level player, having won four Man of the Match awards from WhoScored this season.

Should Cooper’s team remain in the Championship, the exciting starlet is more likely to demand a switch, whereas he may be content with staying put if they went up.

The lure of Newcastle could become great for players because of the money they are willing to offer, however, and Johnson’s head could be turned by what they are capable of achieving at St James’ Park in the coming years.
