Tottenham are planning a double swoop this summer to sign two players who have starred for Nottingham Forest. Both Djed Spence and Brennan Johnson are firmly in their sights for the transfer window, according to Football London.

It looks set to be a busy transfer window for Spurs. Fabio Paratici will want to make sure the squad is well-stocked with Antonio Conte set to lead the club into the Champions League.

Spence will be available for around £15 million from Middlesbrough. It has been claimed previously, however, that Forest would be keen to sign him if they win promotion next Sunday.

His form has been so good that he’s earned recognition with an England under-21 call-up. He’s also been a mainstay in the Forest team with the Reds set to play in the Championship play-off final.

Johnson is also likely to be a wanted man this summer. He’s scored 18 times and claimed 10 assists during 2021/22 and the club rejected a bid from Brentford for £20 million in January.

Now, the forward could be worth slightly more. His contract situation makes for a perilous predicament for Forest though, with Johnson having just a year to run on his deal.

Tottenham are keen to sign both players this summer. That would represent a real blow to Forest, with the duo striking up an unbelievable partnership on the right-hand side for the Reds.

The Reds will be powerless over Spence. Unless the club wins promotion next week, they can kiss goodbye to signing the right-back and even if they do go up, they could still be powerless.

With Tottenham set to embark on Champions League football, they will provide a significant incentive. Every player in the Football League will be keen to play for Spurs, with Spence and Johnson no different.

Forest will have more of a say in the future of Johnson. At 20, he’s the emerging talent of the entire EFL and his 18 goals will naturally alert Premier League clubs.

If Forest beat Huddersfield next week, it seems likely that he will pen a new contract. That would be a massive boost and one that would delight the supporters ahead of next season.

Should Forest lose, however, he could leave. With Tottenham joining West Ham, Brentford, Leeds and Newcastle in the race to sign him, he won’t be short of offers.
