Tottenham agree Johnson fee; eye Gallagher, Kelly – sources

Tottenham have agreed a £47.5 million ($59.8m) fee plus add-ons for Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson, while also attempting to progress deals for Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher and Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly.

Johnson, 22, has been given permission to travel to London to undergo a medical with confidence growing a deal can be completed before Friday’s 11 p.m. (6 p.m. ET) transfer deadline.

There is less certainty around moves for Gallagher and Kelly. Chelsea rejected a £40m bid from West Ham for Gallagher in July, and it is unclear whether they would allow him to depart this late in the window.

The midfielder has started all four matches this season under Mauricio Pochettino and was named captain in Wednesday’s EFL Cup second-round win over AFC Wimbledon. Sources have told ESPN that Gallagher, who has two years remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge, is valued in the region of £50m.

And in a frantic finale to the window, Spurs are also looking to strengthen at centre-back after having a £20m bid rejected by Bournemouth for Kelly. It remains to be seen whether Spurs return with an improved offer on a busy day as the club are also seeking to offload Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, Davinson Sánchez, Japhet Tanganga and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
