Cundy thinks Ivan Toney could be the best option for Graham Potter’s team.
Jason Cundy feels that Chelsea have to sign Ivan Toney in order to combat the striker issues that have plagued them over the past few years.
The West London club have failed to truly replace Diego Costa since he left the club in 2017, the Spaniard being the last man to score 20 league goals for Chelsea, and former Blues midfielder Cundy thinks that Brentford striker Toney needs to be wearing blue next season.
Ivan Toney is in brilliant form and he is the Premier League 3rd top scorer this season behind Harry Kane and Erling Haaland.
Cundy thinks the Englishman could be the best option for Graham Potter’s team.
“Do we need a centre forward? Yes, we do. Ivan Toney has his issues off the field with what’s happening with the betting situation he’s been charged with so let’s wait and see what happens there, but he’s a Chelsea center-forward to me.
“The way he is, the way he looks, the way he plays. We need a platform. We need a rugged, hard, clever, intelligent footballer up front and he ticks a lot of boxes.”
The 27-year-old has been in hot form for Brentford this season, scoring 16 league goals.
