£65 million will get perfect Chelsea deal done


Brentford have reportedly named their asking price for Ivan Toney, and it will be music to CHELSEA ears.

Toney is currently in the middle of a ban that keeps him out of football until January, but that has not stopped speculation that he is a player that we are very much interested in signing.

But while Toney would provide a genuine goalscorig outlet, there has been fears that Brentford would be asking far too much money for a player that will have not played for eight months.

But according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano via his Daily Briefing podcast, a deal can be completed for as little as £65million.

However, we will face competition from Arsenal and Tottenham, who are also said to be keeping tabs on the situation.

Transfer pundit Dean Jones recently come out and claimed that both Toney and the club are keen on the high-profile switch and that Toney’s change in agent may signal a change in employers is near. Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he said:

“I mean, he clearly is looking for a move in January. For all the noise that there is around this transfer, it’s not a coincidence that he’s changed agents. He has big belief in what he’s capable of, and I think during this period out, it’s probably been reflective for him to decide where he wants to take his career.

“And, you know, Brentford, has been great for him, but he knows that he’s capable of playing somewhere bigger than that. So, I think that Chelsea clearly is a club that have interest in him and I think that he’s interested in that too. I’d say there’s probably the highest chance of it happening as we stand right now.”

Pundit Frank McAvennie recently insisted the club are still missing someone like Toney.

“I still think they could do with Toney. I think if they get him they will be a force to be reckoned with again.

They have got a decent squad but no disrespect to Jackson as I think he will be a great player but he is all over the place, he is a bit like Bambi.

He will be a wonderful asset to Chelsea but if they get Toney it is like getting Drogba, he does not mind mixing it up, he does not mind the long runs and I think that is what CHELSEA need.
