BRENTFORD will make a new £6million bid for Nottingham Forest ace Brennan Johnson.
The West London club are still celebrating after winning the Championship play-offs last term.
Now the Premier League debutants want speedy attacker Johnson to help them in the top-flight.
Brentford have already failed with an opening effort.
That only guaranteed around £2m.
Now the Bees are prepared to throw more money at Forest .
But also hope they accept a player in part-exchange for the 20-year-old.
Johnson only has four Championship appearances to his name.
But he showed his capabilities last season when he was sent out on loan to Lincoln City.
The Imps eventually suffered heartbreak in the League One play-off final, but Johnson impressed everyone at Sincil Bank.
