The young attacker has an incredibly high ceiling and could go on to enjoy a very successful career, but for now, he is focussed on continuing to help Forest progress after a difficult start to the campaign.
Johnson will be looking to hit double figures for both assists and goals this season, with those objectives well within the realms of possibility.
Here, we take a look at how Forest fans on Twitter have reacted to Johnson’s recent comments…
I'm guessing he wants a move
