Arsenal leading race to sign €20m-rated Championship forward

Brentford have slapped a whopping £35m price tag on centre-forward Ivan Toney. Ivan only joined Brentford from Peterborough last summer in a deal worth only £5m. Tasked with filling the void former centre-forward Ollie Watkins left when he joined PL side Aston Villa, Ivan has done excellently.

After racking up a hugely impressive 29 goals and 10 assists in only 39 games, so far this campaign, the striker looks to be next in line for a big move to England’s big time.

There are a handful of top-tier clubs rumoured to be in the hunt for Ivan’s signature, including Arsenal, Leeds United and this campaign’s high-flyers, West Ham United.

FLW have claimed that should the Bees sanction a summer move for their prolific marksman, it’ll cost any potential suitor a whopping £35m. It has been noted that Brentford’s valuation comes from the fact they consider Toney to have a greater ‘Premier League pedigree’ than former star Watkins.

Arsenal’s campaign could essentially end on Thursday night, with the prospect of winning the UEL and qualifying for the UCL via that avenue virtually all that Mikel Arteta’s men have left to play for.
