Ivan Toney is probably leaving Brentford within the next 12 months and the likely destination could be Arsenal. The striker has outgrown his current club. And he’s been very open about the fact. He’s ready to make the leap to the next level in his career.
The England international has been strongly linked to a number of clubs since the summer. But it’s Arsenal and Chelsea who have been most strongly linked with a move. This is ofcourse for the £60 million man.
Ivan Toney and Arsenal have been linked together for ages now
There is speculation that Toney could cost £100 million for any club. We personally think that it is a lot of money for a 27-year-old striker. This is especially as the player has not played in the UEFA Champions League.
In our opinion, Napoli and Nigeria international striker Victor Osimhen would be a way better option for Arsenal at the Emirates.
The Englishman has been the talk of the town following his return from his ban last weekend as he went on to score a magnificent free-kick. His future is still in the news. And Richards has explained why he thinks the Arsenal target is worth a fortune at this moment in time.
Indeed, there’s plenty of time between now and the summer transfer window. And a lot can happen between now and then.
Chelsea could become even more desperate for a striker if they continue to falter in the final third. This comes while Arsenal could go off the idea of spending big money on a new forward if Gabriel Jesus hits form. And it could happen if Eddie Nketiah continues to score goals on a regular basis. Arsenal need to sort of what they need in the summer to get the deals over the line as quick as possible.
