Ivan Toney has the ability to score goals on a weekly basis.
Chelsea have been advised to consider snapping up “different level” Ivan Toney from Brentford.
Toney is heavily linked with Chelsea and the Blues are monitoring him. Under Graham Potter, they are doing great in Premier League and Champions League.
Potter needs a striker who has the ability to score goals on a weekly basis. Now, the club have been told that they should try and snap up Brentford hitman Toney.
He scored 31 goals for Brentford when they won promotion out of the Championship in 2020-21. He has scored 20 goals in the top flight so far during his time in the Premier League.
Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has told The Hard Truth podcast: “I’ll say this. Is there a better number nine at Chelsea? Is there a better number nine at Man United? Then let me ask you the question.
“If you were Man United and Chelsea and you can go and write a cheque for £100million and buy a player from Holland or a player from France and Italy and give them a year-and-a-half to acclimatise, are you going to write a cheque and buy one of the top three number nines in the Premier League, who is not even in the prime of his career?
“If Liverpool had owners who would write that cheque, I would happily have him in Liverpool’s team, like that.
“The proof is in the pudding, he’s promoted to the Premier League with a team that’s not fancied to stay up, he’s one of the top three goalscorers in the Premier League in a team that, again, is not a favourite to be top-10, top-12 in the Premier League.”
