Brentford has reportedly set a more affordable price for Ivan Toney, and this has piqued Arsenal’s interest in the English striker. Toney is seen as a potential solution to Arsenal’s goal-scoring needs, and it’s believed he’s also keen on the move to the Emirates.
Toney is currently serving a lengthy ban for betting breaches but is expected to return for the second half of the season. Brentford has felt his absence keenly and is anticipated to consider offers for his signature when the transfer window reopens.
A report in The Sun suggests that Brentford is seeking offers in the vicinity of £65 million for Toney, a significantly lower figure than the previously rumoured price range of £80m to £100m. This revised asking price could make a deal more feasible for Arsenal.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Toney will bring goals to our team and make us even more unpredictable.
He has a different profile to our current options and will likely make us add some changes to our style of play.
However, Toney understands the Premier League and is a striker most defenders fear, unlike our current strikers.
If we have the money to spend, we need to make this transfer happen in January and boost our chance of winning the league.
