Brentford Target Double Swoop for Brennan Johnson and Jen-Lys Cajuste
The Bees Looking to Add Depth to Their squad
The statistics-favoured Brentford model has seen the Bees unearth several gems in the transfer market. Their policy of signing young, talented and versatile players has seen them turn their attention to Brennan Johnson and Jen-Lys Cajuste to add to their squad this summer.
The Bees have reportedly had two formal bids rejected for Forest winger Brennan Johnson. They are looking to make a move for Jen-Lys-Cajuste, who plays for sister club FC Midtjylland.
The Bees have already added Kristoffer Ajer, Frank Onyeka and Myles Peart-Harris this summer, but are looking to make further additions ahead of a difficult season.
Who Are Brennan Johnson and Jens-Lys Cajuste?
Part of Nottingham Forest since the age of eight, Johnson graduated from the Forest academy before making his debut for the senior team in 2019.
The winger made eight appearances for the Championship club in his debut season, but spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan in League One with Lincoln City. The 20-year-old flourished while on loan with the Imps last season, scoring 13 goals in all competitions. His performances saw him making his international debut for Wales last year.
Unlike the case of Johnson, the Bees have not yet made a formal bid for Cajuste. Born in Sweden, the defensive midfielder made his debut for Orgryte in 2016 after graduating from the youth academy. Cajuste spent two seasons in Sweden before joining Midtjylland in 2018. After a decent start, Cajuste quickly became an integral part of the Danish team. Last season, the defensive midfielder made 39 appearances for the Danish side, scoring one goal and making two assists.
