Tottenham continue to keep an eye on Toney amid Arsenal and Chelsea interest

Ivan Toney will return to competitive football soon. His suspension ends on 16th January which means he has time to play for Brentford and also oversee a transfer to another club before the deadline.

However, the Lilywhites face a major problem in their pursuit of the 27-year-old striker. According to the Independent, Arsenal lead the race to sign the player, posing a significant threat to Ange Postecoglou’s plans.

Toney has been a standout performer for Brentford, showcasing his goal-scoring prowess and versatility in leading the attack. The paucity of options in the centre-forward position has elevated Toney’s status as a prime target for clubs looking to bolster their attacking options.

Brentford, identifying the growing interest and with Toney set to return after an eight-month suspension for breaching betting rules, are open to doing business. The Bees have demonstrated adaptability in the striker’s absence, leading to increased attention from potential suitors.

Mission Ivan Toney

While Chelsea has long been considered a likely destination for Toney, the club faces challenges in complying with Profit and Sustainability rules. Chelsea’s need to offload players before making new acquisitions, coupled with Toney’s expected valuation of £60m upfront and potentially £80m with add-ons, has created complications in the pursuit.

Arsenal, on the other hand, has surged ahead in the race, benefitting from Chelsea’s underperformance and their ability to navigate financial constraints more effectively. The Gunners’ strong position in the Premier League adds allure to their pursuit of Toney, as they look to secure a player of his calibre to bolster their attacking options.

For the Lilywhites, a player like Toney could surely help their attacking depth. The potential acquisition of the player will help Son Heung-min take back the role on the wing, and Toney could prove to be a like-to-like replacement for Harry Kane.
