Chelsea is conducting more due diligence than their rivals about the probable transfer of Brentford striker Ivan Toney
The England international is presently serving a temporary suspension from football, but it appears Chelsea is a big fan and wants to be first in line to sign him once he becomes available again.
The work Chelsea has done to persuade Toney to join puts them ahead of their competitors, therefore Blues supporters will undoubtedly be thrilled about this potential agreement.
Toney has been quite excellent while playing for Brentford, and it’s simple to picture him making the transition to Chelsea.
The west London giants haven’t had the best year, but Toney might be a key addition to offer Mauricio Pochettino more skill in front of goal.
Compared to relatively inexperienced young players like Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja, the 27-year-old appears to be a perfect upgrade. However, it is unclear exactly what position Christopher Nkunku will play once he recovers from an injury.
