Transfer news: Brentford still £3m short of Nottingham Forest's £18m valuation for Brennan Johnson

Published on: 18 January 2022

Brentford are £3m short of Nottingham Forest’s valuation in their attempts to land winger Brennan Johnson.

Brentford have indicated they are willing to pay £15m for exciting attacker Johnson.

But Forest want at least £18m for Johnson, 20, a product of their academy, a sum that would top the £17.5m deal Brentford agreed to sign defender Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic last summer.

The Championship side also want a 15 per cent sell-on included in any deal for Johnson.

Johnson is in no rush to leave Forest, the side his dad and former striker David once played for while the club also want him to stay.

Johnson has started all but three games for this season, they are just five points outside the play-offs and also have an FA Cup fourth round tie against Leicester to look forward too next month after Steve Cooper’s side stunned Arsenal in round three.

But Brentford remain keen on prising Johnson away with Forest’s demands now outlined.
