Brentford manager Thomas Frank expects Tottenham Hotspur target Ivan Toney to leave in the summer transfer window
According to BBC, Tottenham Hotspur target Ivan Toney is about to leave Brentford in the upcoming transfer window and now that the player is finally about to leave, we might have a great chance to get his signature.
Toney has finally returned to the Premier League after an absence of eight months due to breaching gambling regulations. Following a diagnosis of gambling addiction, his initial 11-month sanction was reduced by three months.
In a thrilling match against Nottingham Forest on January 20th, the talented player made his comeback for the Bees. He immediately made an impact by scoring a goal, showcasing his skill and determination on the pitch. While no clubs made moves for the striker during the recent transfer window, Brentford might be anticipating significant attention in the upcoming summer.
However, according to the GIVEMESPORT journalist Dean Jones, Tottenham will go for the talented striker but also expect that other PL clubs will be following his situation at Brentford with interest.
According to the above reports, Tottenham is closely monitoring the situation and may seize the opportunity if there are any developments. It also seems that Chelsea and Arsenal are two clubs who are also interested in him to help them bolster their attacking frontiers.
“All the talk around the new contract was that would include a release clause, which would need to be triggered in the summer for somebody to sign him. Now at the moment with that not in place, it obviously seems more feasible that Toney is attainable in the summer. I think there are a lot of clubs that genuinely are looking at Toney, I think that Arsenal and Chelsea are the two main ones. In the background, Tottenham and even Manchester United are having a look just in case the situation could change in a way that suits them.”
Following the departure of Harry Kane shortly before the beginning of the season, we may contemplate bolstering our attacking options in the upcoming transfer windows. Despite securing the signature of Timo Werner earlier last month, it’s worth considering that the RB Leipzig man is currently on loan and may not be the ideal long-term striker that Spurs are looking for. However, if he can impress the team by contributing goals or assists, as he is slowly starting to do, then the scenario can change.

Even if Ange Postecoglou had considered bringing in a striker during the January transfer window, Toney wouldn’t have been a viable choice for Spurs. Given the team’s more pressing needs for a centre-back and a winger, it wouldn’t have been a wise decision to invest heavily in a striker. However, a transfer at the start of the next season could prove beneficial for us.
The fact that Richarlison is also adapting to the club, scoring goals regularly, suggests that a partnership between Richarlison and Toney could be a deadly combination. Let’s see how things unfold at the start of the next transfer window.
