Chelsea encouraged to complete fantastic signing

Ivan Toney would be a ‘fantastic’ signing for the Blues, claims former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham.

The transfer window is no officially open and it will give us a massive chance to start getting some deals done that will send a statement to the rest of the Premier League for new boss Enzo Maresca.

The club performed terribly last season and really struggled for goals, with Cole Palmer the only player to break the 20 goal barrier, so it is vital that the Blues board allow Maresca to add a new forward to that attack over the next few months.

The Brentford talisman was strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in January, though a move for the England international failed to materialise, as he wanted to stay at Brentford and get back to his best after spending so much time out of the game.

However – There remains a strong possibility the ex-Peterborough United stat will be sold this transfer window, offering the club a possible second chance at a deal, which would likely cost them £60 million to wrap up.

Now amid all the transfer speculation and rumours – Sheringham has urged the board to sign the striker – he told Genting Casinos: “I think Ivan Toney would be a fantastic signing for CHELSEA or anyone in London. Any one of those clubs would have him, he is a fantastic player who would enhance any of those sides I’ve just mentioned.

“I don’t know what’s happened to his form, but I think a player of his stature can give a lot to a football team, he is a leader who knows his position and is coming into the prime of his career. I think he would be a great asset.”
