Chelsea & Arsenal have expressed heavy interest in signing Ivan Toney

Brentford might be willing to accept a cheaper price for their prized striker. Ivan Toney’s asking price from the Bees is reportedly surprisingly cheap, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian journalist thinks a deal for about £65 million may be reached by any club that is willing. Toney is being pursued by a number of elite Premier League teams, including Chelsea and Arsenal.

The Bees are prepared to make a profit off of Toney, as manager Thomas Frank has suggested. Fans might be surprised that the team is willing to sell for a fair price instead of starting a winter bidding war.

The Premier League match between Chelsea and Brentford on Saturday isn’t exactly the ‘Ivan Toney derby’, but it still presents a good opportunity to look ahead to a potential deal that has been anticipated more than most others.

Toney moved agents in August and joined CAA Stellar, one of the top agencies in the world, giving the Blues and Gunners reason to believe he is prepared for a new phase in his career.

Although Toney’s manager, Thomas Frank, has already stated that the team will let him go if a good deal comes in, Brentford would love to keep him.

If Chelsea, Arsenal, and any other interested parties engage in a bidding war, the final price might even rise, according to reports, to include Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Toney has been suspended for eight months after breaking the gambling rules of the Football Association 232 times. He can’t play again until January 17, 2024, and was just permitted to rejoin the Brentford training programme last month.
