Chelsea interested in signing proven Premier League star in January
Chelsea could be looking to bring Brentford striker Ivan Toney to Stamford Bridge, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The club have not had the start to the new season that many people had hoped for and Graham Potter knows that in order to keep his job – he needs to do something about it.
And there is still alot of speculation about who they could make for in the coming transfer window – as they are in dire need of adding a new striker to that front line.
Toney is a striker that is rated very highly in the Premier League as many believe that he would be scoring alot more goals if he was playing at one of the big clubs in England.
Now – if you believe the words of O’Rourke – we are now interested in trying to sign the big powerhouse – who is surely worth close to the £60-70 or £80 million asking price.
O’Rourke told GIVEMESPORT: “I think Chelsea long-term will be looking to bring in a number nine, probably this summer.
“I don’t think Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is the long-term answer due to his form and his age probably.
“So, I think Chelsea will be looking at him [Toney]. If you’re looking at Premier League strikers and ones that are probably more gettable than others, Ivan Toney definitely comes into the reckoning.”
The club have been linked with a number of strikers over the past few months because that is what they need.
But if they want a proven Premier League star that has the ability to score goals – then Tony is the man
