Manchester City, Newcastle United and Aston Villa are keeping an eye on Brennan Johnson.
A promising resource from Wales. 메이저놀이터 He is a type of straight dribbling that utilizes his speed and is good at inducing fouls by taking his timing quickly with a concise ball touch. Although his main position is attacking midfielder, he is versatile enough to play as a center forward, left and right winger, second striker and central midfielder.
He is the star of Nottingham Forest’s franchise. He made his adult stage debut in the 2019-20 season and showed his presence, then went on loan to Lincoln City in the 2020-21 season and burst his potential. Although it was only in the 3rd division, Johnson recorded 10 goals and 12 assists in 40 games in the league, demonstrating high-level skills, and immediately jumped to Nottingham’s starting lineup the following year.
Johnson’s rise continued. In the 2021-22 season 2nd division, he recorded 46 matches, 16 goals and 9 assists, and climbed to the top ranks, and scored 2 goals in the promotion playoffs, leading the team’s promotion to the 1st division.
So this season, Johnson entered the English Premier League (EPL) for the first time in his life at the young age of 21. Full of his confidence, Johnson showed his influence in the first division as well. He scored 10 goals and 3 assists in 41 games, including cup competitions, and succeeded in recording double-digit offensive points in the league.
As a result, many clubs showed interest in him. Transfer market expert Jacques Talbot said on his social media, “Man City, Newcastle and Aston Villa are watching Johnson’s situation.”
But Nottingham didn’t want to sell. Talbot said: “Nottingham will reject all offers for Johnson if they manage to stay this season.”
Rejection is also rejection, but there were conditions. It was ‘remain’. As Talbot noted, Nottingham’s prerequisite to keeping Johnson is to stay in the league. If he doesn’t succeed in staying, Johnson will push for a transfer and Nottingham are likely to sell him to finance themselves.
I cannot confirm the possibility. Nottingham are currently 16th in the league with 33 points. They are only three points behind Leicester City, who are in 18th place in the relegation zone. It is a situation where the ranking can be reversed as a result of a single match.
The future schedule is also not easy. There are only three games left, but two of them are against the Big 6. Nottingham are scheduled to start with an away game against Chelsea, then a home game against Arsenal and an away game against Crystal Palace.
