£40M WINGER HAS NOW BEEN OFFERED TO WEST HAM UNITED
David Moyes’s West Ham United have been offered the chance to sign Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest, according to a report.
According to The Times, West Ham United have been offered the chance to sign Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson in the summer transfer window.
The Hammers have turned down the opportunity.
Brentford, though, are keen on the winger.
The London club have made an offer of £35 million for the 22-year-old winger, according to The Times.
Forest have rejected Brentford’s bid for Johnson.
The Reds want as much as £40 million for the Wales international winger.
West Ham United should show interest in Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson
In our opinion, West Ham United should keep tabs on Nottingham Forest winger
We can understand why the Hammers have turned down the chance to sign the Welshman in the summer transfer window.
After all, Forest are asking for £40 million.
That is too much money for a player who has played just one season of top-flight football.
We believe that a transfer fee between £20 million and £30 million would be more realistic for Johnson.
If Brentford do not make a new offer and the winger stays at Forest, then West Ham should keep tabs on him and see how he does in the coming campaign.
There is no doubt that the 22-year-old is a very good and promising young winger who has massive potential.
In 38 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career, the Wales international has scored eight goals and given three assists.
Johnson was very good for Forest last season and impressed former Manchester United star Roy Keane among others.
If the winger does well again next season, then perhaps West Ham could get serious about him next summer.
