Nottingham Forest forward Brennan Johnson is being monitored by a host of clubs including West Ham as he prepares to leave his club this summer.
It’s understood that to consider any potential sale, Forest would require a bid of £50million at least to enter into talks.
The 22 year old Johnson is capable of playing in multiple roles so this is a signing that makes sense on paper. He would probably start ahead of Said Benrahma and offer more of a goal threat than him from open play as well.
With Declan Rice leaving, it frees up funds for Hammers to strengthen in other areas and signing a left winger is likely to be on the cards.
Johnson can play down the middle and it could be a fluid front three if Gianluca Scamacca leaves and another mobile striker is signed to replace him.
The Welshman is talented footballer and will bring something unique to David Moyes’ West Ham side.
It remains to be seen if the Hammers do end up entering the bidding war for him but given the numbers involved, they may decide to sit this one out.
