Arsenal stepping up their interest in signing top striker in January

Arsenal’s pursuit of Brentford’s Ivan Toney is gaining momentum as the January transfer window looms closer, reports Mirror Sports.

Toney has emerged as a high-priority target for Arsenal as they seek to reinforce their attacking prowess. Currently serving a suspension for violating FA betting rules, the 27-year-old will be available to sign in the January transfer window.

Brentford is open to the idea of parting ways with Toney, but they have placed a substantial £60 million price tag on the striker.

Arsenal has long admired Toney, and were it not for his suspension, they might have pursued him during the summer transfer window.

Toney is eager to secure a move to a larger club, and with just 18 months remaining on his contract, he has unequivocally communicated to Brentford that he has no intention of extending his stay, despite the club’s support during his suspension.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Toney would be a huge signing, however, other clubs will no doubt also be keen on signing him and an auction could easily take place that may see Arsenal priced out.

One thing is for sure, Toney would be an upgrade on both Eddie Nketiaha and Gabriel Jesus when it comes to finding the back of the net.

  1. If Arsenal don’t f** k about in the negotiations & make it clear to Brentford they’ll pay the asking price,it won’t be a problem.If they start low balling ,the Chavs will arrive with silly money( they do love an Arsenal target) as we do their scouting for them.( while they flog us their rejects)& wages & we can forget it.The ball is on Arsenals court.A huge opportunity for one of the last jigsaw pieces.

      1. No! Eddie is gonna feel betrayed and won’t be happy given he was swapped to an inferior team with next to no chance of winning trophies, that’s harsh and unfair.

        1. VAMOS, Which, among AFC and Eddie Nketiah esquire, do you truly support?

          Fans who put an odd affection for ANY individual above supporting the good of the team, seem to me to be strange and muddled in their thinking.

  2. Toney would be certainly an upgrade on Nketiah and he is a real goal getter. The fact that he has once expressed an interest to play for Arsenal will certainly help.

  3. not convinced Toney is a 30 goal a season elite striker

    and after a very long ban a bit of a risk will not be the same

    our bigger issue is at the other end and leaking too many goals at home, 15 more than City last year equates to nearly a goal a game at home

    and too many of those goals are errors and/or sloppy play, e.g. how did 3 defenders surrounding Son not get a touch before he flicked it in off the far post, and the second goal is unforgiveable

    with 2 – 0 score line the mood would be very different and likely this conversation not happening

    1. How many 30 goal a season strikers are realistically available in world football though? I can only think of Kane,Lewandoski and Haaland as strikers who have proved they can score 30.Maybe Mbappe and Salah too if you consider them as strikers,which they aren’t since they prefer coming in from wide. I don’t think any of these players will be joining us. In a squad where Jesus,Saka,Martinelli,Odegaard can each get 15 goals,I don’t think you’d need Toney scoring 30. But if he managed 20 at Brentford,logically you’d expect him to get more in a better team like Arsenal-if he’s the main striker that is. I get your point about it being a risk because he’d be rusty after the long ban.

      I agree with you on our form defensively,at home. We concede sloppy goals at home,something you don’t see away. Our away form was one of the best,if not the best last season. Unfortunately the trend of conceding cheap goals at home has continued this season. Maybe it’s mental. Whatever it is,I hope Arteta finds a solution to it soon.

      1. ‘how many 30 goal a season strikers are there’, i.e. very very few, is exactly my point – it is a fantasy

        secondly, only 1 has scored 30 goals more than once in the last 10 PL seasons – who is that = Kane, and guess what that did not automatically result in a PL title, or even lesser silverware, or any silverware

        so the whole debate is flawed in two fundamental respects, 1) there are no realistic 30 goal a season strikers available, 2) even if we had one it does not automatically mean you lift the PL trophy (or any trophy)

        so Arsenal fans stop going on about something that won’t happen and would not guarantee success – we’ll be hearing the “we never replaced Henry” nonsense next
