Pundit Jermaine Jenas has told CHELSEA that they should look to sign Ivan Toney in the January window.

Toney is nearing a return to action following a 10-month ban from football and we are reportedly keen to try and get a deal done when the transfer window opens up in just a few weeks time.

Toney is seen as one of the best forwards in the Premier League and a player that is ready to take that next step in his career, despite the fact he has been out of action for a few months because of his off-field antics.

And amid all the transfer speculation – Pundit Jenas has opened up and told the board that they should do all they can to try and sign Ivan Toney this coming transfer window.

Jenas said on TNT Sports: “Ivan Toney, I think he is built for this team, Ivan Toney, personally, the way that they play. He would be the one that I would, yeah definitely, go for if I were the manager.”

However – Brentford boss Thomas Frank has admitted that they are desperate to keep the £80 million valued striker in the January transfer window.

Thomas Frank said: “Is he raring to go? Oh yeah, definitely. To get Ivan back will be like signing an unbelievably good Premier League striker.

“Ivan is training very well on and off the pitch, looking forward to finally contributing to the team.

“I really, really would like to keep him. As a coach I’d love to have my best players with me all the time. From my perspective, I don’t want to sell him because I think he’s fantastic.

“Last year there were three players scoring more than 20 goals in the Premier League, he was one of them.

“I’m enjoying him every day and looking forward to finally using him.

“Ivan is a Brentford player. No bids. I want to keep him. And he’s looking forward to playing for us.”
