Chelsea might go all out for Brentford forward Ivan Toney

According to a report from The Sun, Chelsea board anticipates that some of their key competitors will pursue a transfer. That is for Brentford’s Ivan Toney during the upcoming January transfer window. The 27-year-old forward from Brentford has been consistently in the rumors to be a potential addition to Stamford Bridge.

Reports suggest that Chelsea officials believe there will be intense competition for the signature of the center-forward.

As per The Sun, Chelsea is gearing up for a three-way tussle in the upcoming January transfer window. Thus, facing competition from Arsenal and Tottenham to secure the signing of Toney. Chelsea insiders suggest that Arsenal is ready to make a move for the 27-year-old English star, and there is a sense that Spurs are also preparing a bid in their quest to find a replacement for Harry Kane.

The report details that the Blues are gearing up for a direct competition to secure the striker. Interestingly, journalist Simon Phillips, in his Substack report this month, mentioned that Paul Winstanley strongly desires Chelsea to sign Toney in the upcoming New Year.

Can Chelsea secure the signing of Ivan Toney?

To be fair, Arsenal currently appears closer to having a complete squad compared to Chelsea or Spurs. The looming question is, which team is to exert the most effort to secure the services of the Brentford ace?

The consensus is that Toney poses a significant gamble for any of the mentioned clubs, particularly if the transfer fee approaches the £100 million mark. Nonetheless, his recent development at Brentford has molded him into a prototypical Premier League striker in the past seasons.

His combination of pace, strength, composure, and intelligence positions him as the ideal target man. Thus, he has the potential to add considerable value to any of the three clubs—Chelsea, Arsenal, or Spurs.
