Spurs will face Burnley on Saturday 2nd September, as they look to build upon their solid start to the new campaign under new boss Ange Postecoglou.

The Lilywhites were held to a 2-2 draw way to Brentford before they beat Manchester United 2-0 in a dominant display at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

A Lisandro Martinez own goal and a Pape Matar Sarr goal earned Postecoglou his first competitive home win as Spurs’ head coach.

Yves Bissouma has played a crucial role for the North London outfit and he was awarded the Man of the Match award in each of Tottenham’s first two Premier League fixtures.

New signings James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, Micky Van de Ven and Manor Solomon all featured in the opening two games.

However, it seems Tottenham are still busy in the transfer market and want to add another player to the squad before the summer window slams shut, and they have now been handed a boost. 

According to Football Insider, Nottingham Forest player Brennan Johnson has informed friends that he is keen to join Spurs.

Postecoglou’s side have stepped up their interest in the forward since the sale of striker Harry Kane for around £100m.

Brennan Johnson has emerged as a top target for Tottenham this summer after the departure of Harry Kane.

The former Spurs man scored 30 goals for the Lilywhites last season, and is also both Tottenham’s and England’s record goal scorer. 

The North Londoners reportedly have faith in Richarlison to lead the line this season, but the striker has struggled to hit the ground running so far at Spurs.

However, regular game time may help the Brazilian to improve his form throughout the season.

Despite relying on Richarlison to fill in Harry Kane’s spot, the club have identified Johnson as a forward they would like to sign to add firepower to Postecoglou’s side.

The Welshman bagged eight goals and notched up three assists for Forest in the Premier League last season.

Nottingham Forest reportedly want a package worth around £50m for the 22-year-old.

 However, the two clubs apparently remain apart in their valuations of the player, which could make a deal unlikely in the final week of the window.
