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 22-year-old is absolutely perfect for the Hammers. He can play as a number 10, on either wing or even through the middle as an auxiliary striker.

The Forest ace possesses pace and power in abundance and plays with a fearless directness that we desperately lack right now.

Unfortunately for West Ham though, it seems like Tottenham could be about to sign Brennan Johnson. And that really is a big shame.
