Arsenal are reportedly considering a move for Brentford striker Ivan Toney, with manager Mikel Arteta potentially convincing the club to pay 60 million for the 27-year-old. However, Brentford values Toney at 68 million, so a compromise between the two clubs is necessary.
The Gunners could look to make a move for the 27-year-old striker... 68 million and it will be interesting to see if the two clubs can reach a compromise.
Toney is seen as a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and could be a valuable addition to Arsenal's attack. With Arsenal competing for the league title and needing quality players, Toney could make a big difference and potentially be an upgrade to Gabriel Jesus.
He could prove to be an upgrade on Gabriel Jesus, who has scored just four times in the league this season.
Toney is said to want to join a big club like Arsenal and they could offer him the opportunity to play in the UEFA Champions League next season. It would be a significant step up in his career that he hopes can be achieved with an agreed-upon fee between the two clubs.
The striker will want to join a big club and Arsenal are certainly one of the biggest clubs in the country.
