Brentford to drop asking price for Tottenham target Ivan Toney

Sources have informed Football Insider that Brentford will need to lower their requested fee if they hope to facilitate the departure of Tottenham Hotspur target Ivan Toney this summer. The Bees are currently seeking between £50-60 million for the 28-year-old, a price considered too high given that he has only one year remaining on his contract.

Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham, and Manchester United are highly interested in Ivan Toney as they look to bolster their attacking options. Tottenham holds a particularly strong admiration for the English striker due to his impressive goal-scoring performances for Brentford in recent seasons.

Brentford is now confronted with a challenging decision regarding Toney’s future, compounded by the London club’s vulnerable negotiating position due to his precarious contract status and recent decline in form. After returning from a suspension related to gambling rules violations in January, the 28-year-old managed to score four goals and provide two assists in 17 appearances during the 2023-24 season.

Toney gained significant attention the previous season when he scored 20 goals in 33 Premier League matches, making him a sought-after player. Although he earned three caps for England, Toney was included in the squad for this summer’s European Championships in Germany but did not make an appearance off the bench in their group-stage victory over Serbia.

Tottenham’s potential acquisition of Ivan Toney at a reduced price hinges on several key factors. Firstly, they must assess Toney’s current form and how it aligns with their squad needs, particularly in the striker position. His recent season, marked by his returning from a suspension and contributing four goals and two assists in 17 appearances, contrasts with his prolific prior season where he netted 20 Premier League goals.

Financially, Tottenham must weigh Brentford’s asking price against their budget and other transfer targets. Toney’s contract situation, with only one year remaining, could give Tottenham leverage in negotiations, potentially lowering the fee. Moreover, considering Toney’s age (28) and potential resale value, Tottenham’s long-term strategy comes into play. If they see him as a valuable addition who can offer immediate impact and bolster their attacking options, acquiring him at a reduced cost could be advantageous.
