Brentford have agreed a stunning deal with Club Brugge to sign Norwegian sensation Antonio Nusa who has been a target for Tottenham throughout this winter transfer window, LondonWorld has been told. 

The 18-year-old who has scored four goals and assisted three in 28 appearances for Club Brugge has been on the list of players Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou has been targeting all winter. But he's now agreed to join the Bees and will play at the Gtech Community Stadium next season.

Chelsea had a bid of around £18million for him turned down last summer and even though they have not gone blazing for him since then, sources say they were also still interested, but their loss is now Bees' manager Thomas Frank's gain. 

West London side Brentford have agreed to pay a fee in the region of £26million and will allow the four-time capped Norway international to return to Brugge for the second half of the season before returning to London in the summer for pre-season ahead of the 2024/2025 Premier League season.

He will become the Bees’ fourth signing of this transfer window, with their January business notably including left-back Sergio Reguilon who has joined on loan from Spurs after his stay at Manchester United was cut short.

For Spurs, they signed former Chelsea forward Timo Werner until the end of the season and brought in Romanian Radu Dragusin as they look to augment the team and fight for a spot in the top four of the Premier League table.
