Chelsea will battle Arsenal for Toney despite interest in Osimhen

Arsenal is set to face competition from Chelsea in their pursuit of Ivan Toney, as both clubs are actively searching for a top striker.

Chelsea has been grappling with scoring issues this season, particularly after allowing Romelu Lukaku to leave on loan. They have been in the market for a top striker, and Victor Osimhen of Napoli has emerged as their primary target in recent weeks.

However, according to a report from the Daily Mail, Chelsea has also shown interest in Toney, who appears to be keen on a move to Arsenal. Toney’s experience in the Premier League makes him a potential option for Chelsea, especially if they encounter difficulties securing Osimhen.

This scenario sets the stage for a potential bidding war between the two clubs for Toney’s signature, which could result in a substantial transfer fee for Brentford when the player eventually departs.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We can tell that Chelsea is more than happy to splash the cash on the players they want, so it should bother us that they also like Toney.

The Brentford man is one of the finest attackers in England now and we should push to sign him in January instead of waiting until the end of the term, knowing he may move to another club before then.

    1. Gunsmoke who is this Cancelo Ramos? You mention him in virtually all your posts. Do you mean Goncalo Ramos,the Portoguese striker ? If he’s the one you’re referring to then it’s interesting that you’d have him over Toney. Apart from the fact that he’s unproven in the big leagues,it speaks a lot that he’s not been trusted by either PSG or Portugal to be the main striker. Apart from that, he’s not really the physically imposing type people crave and I doubt PSG will easily let him go having just signed him. There are better strikers out there than Goncalo Ramos in my opinion.

      1. My bad. He’s actually been playing for PSG. But he has 2 goals in 7 matches-that is hardly prolific. Whatever the case, it would be unrealistic to expect Arsenal to buy him because PSG have an obligation to buy him at the end of the season.

        1. Oh yes he is the one Onyango, honestly I have only seen him once since scoring the hat-trick for Portugal against Switzerland and that was at Anfield scoring against Liverpool.

          Didn’t realize he has now moved on to PSG,, But he is the type signing Arsenal should be making, young highly technical and sport a very high ceiling at 22 yrs old,

          He had exploded into life after Darwin Nunez left Benfica to Anfield, if he has for any reason suddenly stop firing at PSG, just maybe there is a chance worth exploring

          1. Yes Gunsmoke,they signed him on loan with an obligation to buy. Don’t think he’ll be leaving PSG anytime soon especially with Mbappe expected to leave next summer.But you’re right that he was great for Benfica. There’s another young player by the name Santiago Gimenez we’ve been linked to.I suggest you look him up. He’s an interesting option if Arteta is looking for a young striker.

            1. Onyango – For some strange reason this Gimenez kid had slipped under the radar for me, he seems a good talent and is on fire just now.
              He is new on the block, like Balogun had great campaign last season.

              He too has been link with the cemetery of talents along with Mbappe.
              Indeed he’s interesting though I haven’t seen him played,
              At 22yrs , his cost seems very reasonable too, these are the players Arsenal should be looking at.

          2. No surprise the Chavs are sniffing around Toney.We usually do our scouting for them.Somply part of their plan to drive the price up cos everyone knows they’ll pay silly money no matter.Will FFP ever come knocking at their door.An unexplained Billion pound plus spend on the last two windows.Really?

  1. A defensive midfielder is more of a priority than a striker for Arsenal right now.
    We will be without Partey and Elneny for a month. I’d love to see a quality DM brought in January not only to plug the hole immediately, but as long-term replacement for the summer departure of Jorginho.

  2. If it’s to be a DM next window.It will be Zubamendi.
    If it’s a CF it will be Toney.
    If it’s a winger,it will be Neto.
