And with Paqueta closing in on a move to Manchester City, Johnson would be a really strong replacement for the Brazilian Hammers midfielder.

He won’t come cheap though…

West Ham could now sign ‘exceptional’ Premier League star as a Lucas Paqueta replacement

The Guardian reckon that the Hammers are eyeing up a move to sign £45 million-rated Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest this summer.

I think he’d be a truly superb addition for us.

The Wales international can play as a number 10 or on either wing, and he’d offer us something completely different inside the final third.

Johnson is an incredibly exciting young talent. Considering his age, he has put in some really impresses performances for Forest on a very consistent basis. He was recently described as an exceptional talent by former Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton (FLW).

The attacking midfielder was in superb form for Forest last season with eight goals and three assists to his name in 38 Premier League games (Transfermarkt).

He has blistering pace, impressive technical ability and has the energy needed to run and work hard for the entire 90 minutes.

I think that he’d suit Moyes’s system perfectly. And for £45 million, Brennan Johnson would be a brilliant Lucas Paqueta replacement as far as I’m concerned.
