Brentford Boss Affirms: No Bids for Arsenal and Chelsea Target Ivan Toney

Ivan Toney has not yet received any formal proposals for Brentford, according to Phil Giles, director of football.

Because he is serving a suspension for breaking Football Association betting rules, the 27-year-old has missed games so far this season.

Though the forward won’t be playing competitive football for eight months and isn’t expected back until mid-January, rumours about his future still abound.

The England international has made 66 appearances in his two seasons of Premier League play, contributing 32 goals and nine assists, which has caught the attention of several of the major clubs in the division.

In recent months, Toney has been strongly linked to Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Chelsea as they consider expanding their offensive options.

Although Brentford would like not to lose their star player, he is now at the point in his contract where he has just over 19 months left.

It’s unknown if Toney would insist on an achievable release clause in the event that a new contract is inked, although sources have suggested that he would.

Even yet, Giles claims that since Toney moved from Peterborough United to West London in 2020, Brentford has never had to turn down a suitor for his signature.

“I’ll investigate if my phone rings between now and then. However, I’m not at all focused on that.”

Toney’s happiness at Brentford has been emphasised by head coach Thomas Frank, despite rumours that he was looking to leave the Bees.

It would be anticipated of any club interested in signing Toney before the January transfer window to spend more than £60 million, although it is not certain which of the previously named clubs will make a formal offer.

Victor Osimhen of Napoli is reportedly Chelsea’s top priority, but Spurs and Arsenal would presumably rather recruit a new central midfielder or winger, respectively.
