Powerhouse ‘Advised’ to join Chelsea in January!


Ivan Toney has been advised to snub a move to Arsenal in January and join a club like CHELSEA.

Despite not being part of that Brentford squad this season because he has been banned – there has been alot of transfer talk regarding the long-term future of Ivan Toney, who is one of the best in the Premier League.

Toney netted 20 Premier League goals last season with Brentford’s asking price ranging from £80million to £100million, according to latest reports.

We have both been linked with a possible move for Toney – as both need strikers in the coming windows – but according to pundit Troy Deeney, it is the Blue side of London rather than the Red.

‘My advice to him would be to join a project where you fit like a glove — and that would be Chelsea,’ the former Watford striker told The Sun.

‘Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino’s biggest problem is still a need for an out-and-out striker. After £1BILLION of spending, where are his 20 goals coming from consistently?

‘So, what is another £100million to them? That’s the going rate for a top player nowadays, and I reckon Brentford would accept £80m plus add-ons.

‘Some may argue CHELSEA as a club is a circus. Why would any player, especially one who has been out for a lengthy period, want to get involved there as they hover around mid-table with no European football?

‘But elite strikers have this different sort of mindset and arrogance. Ivan will look at that team, that situation, and think: “Let me show you why I am the Guv’nor.”

‘He may well also be the missing piece to Arsenal’s hunt for the title but they play a style that would force him to change his game quite significantly, getting used to not having as many touches as he would like.

‘Or, Mikel Arteta would have to slightly tweak his own style. I can’t see that happening.’
