Brennan Johnson facing awkward reunion with Richarlison at Tottenham after reacting angrily to striker’s showboating

Incoming Tottenham signing Brennan Johnson could be set for an interesting reunion with Richarlison when he joins the club.

The forward is closing in on a £45million move to north London from Nottingham Forest on deadline day.

Johnson had been linked with Chelsea and Brentford, but Spurs will soon sign him as their ninth arrival of the summer.

He will also be their most expensive acquisition of the window as he surpasses the £40m fee paid for James Maddison.

A move to Spurs will likely see him line up alongside Richarlison as Ange Postecoglou hopes to deliver silverware to the club.

However, Johnson and his soon-to-be Brazilian teammate have previously shared a feisty encounter on the pitch.

When Forest hosted Spurs at the beginning of last season, second half substitute Richarlison opted to do some showboating.

He was seen practicing his keepy-uppies as the visitors closed in on their 2-0 win, but Johnson decided to take action.

However, their past differences will have to be put aside as they now prepare to become teammates in north London.

Spurs have enjoyed a strong start to the season thanks to wins against Manchester United and Bournemouth.

They also picked up a solid point away to Brentford and currently sit third in the Premier League table.

Johnson will arrive as an exciting presence in the attack given his impressive efforts at Steve Cooper’s side last season.

The 22-year-old, who also has 19 caps for Wales, scored ten goals and assisted a further three across all competitions for Forest.
