Tottenham have not given up hope of signing Ivan Toney (Brentford). The Sun reported on Monday that “three Premier League clubs are set to battle it out for the England international’s signature. Toney is also planning to leave Brentford,” the newspaper reported.

The three clubs are Tottenham, Chelsea, and West Ham. Arsenal have taken one foot out of the door, according to The Sun.

Brentford’s situation is not as easy. They’re currently 15th in the English Premier League (EPL) with 26 points. Only five points separate them from 18th-place Nottingham Forest (21 points), who dropped into the relegation zone after being punished with a four-point deduction for breaching the Revenue and Sustainability Regulations (PSR).

A drop to the second tier would accelerate Tony’s sale. 카지노사이트 Brentford have also signed 22-year-old Igor Thiago, who plays for Belgian club Brugge, in preparation for parting ways with Toney. He will join Brentford later this season on July 1.

Chelsea have an Achilles heel.

Since last season, the club has spent more than £1 billion in the transfer window. In order to comply with the PSR, they will have to sell existing resources before they can sign Tosun.

Tottenham have not reinforced the position left by Harry Kane. They could still sign him if they wanted to.

A Premier League source told The Sun: “It is well known that both Chelsea and Tottenham need a ‘No. 9’ and that Toni would suit both clubs. West Ham are also interested. The Hammers believe that signing him could help them take the club to the next level.”

There are also offers from Italy and Spain, but Toni is not moving. He has reportedly told his entourage that he wants to continue his professional career in London.

In May of last year, Toney was suspended for eight months by the English Football Association for 232 gambling violations. His suspension was lifted in January.

The ‘form’ is still there Toney returned to action against Nottingham Forest on January 21, and immediately set off the goal fireworks, scoring four goals. He was recalled to the England squad for two back-to-back A matches in March.

His potential exploded after his move to second-tier Brentford in 2020.

He scored 31 goals in the Championship in the 2020-2021 season to lead Brentford to promotion to the top flight.

He followed that up with 12 goals in the EPL in 2021-2022 and 20 last season. Spurs acquired Werner in the transfer market last winter, but only on a ‘loan’ basis.

Spurs tried to sign Tosun as Kane’s backup in 2020, 안전놀이터 but it never materialized. The problem is the transfer fee. Brentford value Tosun at £100 million. The transfer fee is likely to be in the region of £80 million.

Toney is contracted to Brentford until June 2025.
