Chelsea will not have to pay £100m for summer target

Chelsea will not pay an exorbitant fee for English forward this summer.

The West London giants have been heavily linked with Brentford striker Ivan Toney who has been a prime target for several Premier League clubs.

The 27-year-old striker would be a huge upgrade to current striking options Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku who arrived last summer.

The English forward will be a prime target for several Premier League clubs and Arsenal are reportedly leading the chase for the 27-year-old striker.

His betting ban was uplifted in January and Toney will be at the centre of a transfer debacle in the summer window.

Chelsea will be in the market for a new striker and has made Toney one of their top targets.

Even Brentford manager Thomas Frank has admitted that the Englishman would be on the move this summer.

Romano said: “Another story that could be relevant for Chelsea, who want to sign a striker this summer, and also for Arsenal, is that Thomas Frank has spoken publicly about Ivan Toney being likely to leave at the end of this season.

“He’ll have just a year left on his contract, so his price tag will likely be lower than the £100m it would have cost to sign him in January.”
