Chelsea want to sign brilliant £80 million valued star
CHELSEA failed to get a new striker in the summer window, but it has been claimed that a move for Ivan Toney will be made in the January window.
Ivan Toney has had a massive season for Brentford and has netted 21 times in all competitions this campaign – but he is about to spend alot of time out of the game.
Toney has been hit with the heavy punishment after admitting 232 breaches of FA betting rules and will now be banned from all football activities until 16 January 2024.
However – that has not stopped all the speculation surrounding his future and there has been rumours that Toney is still a player that Ted Boehly would like to bring to Stamford Bridge.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED –
He has now linked up with CAA Stellar – the agency behind Gareth Bale and Jack Grealish’s record-breaking transfers.
Along with Grealish, Toney joins Three Lions teammates Ben Chilwell, Kalvin Phillips, Luke Shaw, Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope and James Ward-Prowse at CAA Stellar.
According to The Times, Brentford have slapped an £80m price tag on their striker, with the Bees resigned to losing him, and they have stated the club are braced to receive bids for Toney once his suspensions ends on January 16.
Toney may now be out of the game for a while – but he still a player that can bang in the goals on a weekly basis.
If the club wants to sign a striker – Toney could be their man as he is already proven in the Premier League and is a player that Pochettino would love to work for.
