According to journalist Pete O’Rourke, Chelsea may be interested in signing Brentford striker Ivan Toney.
Chelsea have not had the start to the new season that many had hoped for, and Graham Potter knows that he needs to do something about it if he wants to keep his job.
And there is still a lot of speculation about who they might sign in the upcoming transfer window, as they desperately need to add a new striker to their front line.
Toney is a striker who is highly regarded in the Premier League, with many believing that he would score far more goals if he played for one of England’s big clubs.
Now, if you believe it, Chelsea could be looking to bring Brentford striker Ivan Toney to Stamford Bridge, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke. Chelsea have not had the start to the new season that many people had hoped for and Graham Potter knows that in order to keep his job – he needs to do something about it.
And there is still alot of speculation about who they could make for in the coming transfer window – as they are in dire need of adding a new striker to that front line.
Toney is a striker that is rated very highly in the Premier League as many believe that he would be scoring alot more goals if he was playing at one of the big clubs in England.
Now, if you believe the words of O’Rourke – Chelsea are now interested in trying to sign the big powerhouse – who is surely worth close to the £60-70 or £80 million asking price.
“I think Chelsea long-term will be looking to bring in a number nine, probably this summer.
“I don’t think Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is the long-term answer due to his form and his age probably.
“So, I think Chelsea will be looking at him [Toney]. If you’re looking at Premier League strikers and ones that are probably more gettable than others, Ivan Toney definitely comes into the reckoning.”
Chelsea has been linked with a number of strikers in recent months because that is what they require.
Tony, on the other hand, is a proven Premier League star with the ability to score goals.
He could be a fantastic signing for Potter.
