Tottenham Hotspur of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), with Son Heung-min wearing the captain’s armband, strengthened its front line by recruiting 22-year-old Welsh striker Brennan Johnson.
Tottenham announced on the 2nd (Korean time), “We have recruited Johnson from Nottingham Forest (second division),” and “the contract period runs until 2029. He is number 22.”메이저사이트
Although the terms of the contract have not been announced, Johnson’s transfer fee is reportedly worth more than 45 million pounds (about 75 billion won).
Tottenham filled the void in the front line created by veteran striker Harry Kane’s transfer to Bayern Munich (Germany) with ‘young blood’ Johnson.
Johnson is the son of David Johnson (47), a former Jamaica national soccer team striker who played for Nottingham Forest.
Born in Nottingham, Johnson made his professional debut in 2019 at Nottingham Forest, where his father played.
Johnson, who was loaned to Lincoln City (3rd division) for a season in the 2020-2021 season, returned to Nottingham in the 2021-2022 season and contributed greatly to the team’s promotion to the EPL by scoring 16 goals in 46 regular league games.
Johnson, who performed well in the EPL last season by scoring 8 goals in 38 games, received a love call from Tottenham and chose to transfer.
After playing with the England U-16 and U-17 national teams, Johnson switched to Wales and experienced the U-19 and U-21 national teams.
Johnson, who got to eat together with Son Heung-min at Tottenham, coincidentally has to meet Son Heung-min as an ‘enemy’ on September 8th, Korean time.
Johnson was selected as a striker for the Wales national team that will participate in the friendly match against Korea held at Cardiff City Stadium in Wales on this day.
