Arsenal is willing to sell Thomas Partey in order to generate money for a three-man January transfer list.
Ivan Toney, a striker for Brentford, has the potential to be as influential at Manchester City as Erling Haaland, according to Arsenal, provided they defeat Chelsea in what would be a sensational January transfer. The English forward, who has already discussed a possible transfer in public, will be back from suspension next month.
Although Toney broke the FA’s betting regulations last year and was one of the best strikers in the Premier League, he has been suspended for the entire season thus far. Former goalkeeper David Seaman of the team feels he can be Arsenal’s own Haaland, and the Gunners are rumored to be interested in adding another forward to bolster Mikel Arteta’s front line.
As for signing Ivan Toney in January, Seaman told The Sports Daily, “I would imagine that Arteta would be looking at it.” Particularly considering the wounds that Gabriel Jesus is sustaining. In addition to being skilled in the air, Toney also possesses good footwork. It is like when Haaland signed with Manchester City, I think.
“People questioned why they required such a striker.” Even without him, they were leading the league in goals scored and taking home the championship, but you can still see his influence. An individual with his size and ability to score goals would be a great asset to Arsenal.
Ivan Toney’s transfer to Arsenal in January has been mentioned.
If Arsenal pursues Toney further, Chelsea is probably going to show interest as well. Given Brentford’s reputation as hard negotiators and their potential demand of upwards of £60 million for their star player, the 27-year-old would not come cheap.
Thomas Frank, the manager of the Bees, has already ruled out the possibility that Toney will leave in January. “Last year, his actions were witnessed by all. He told the London Evening Standard, “It is not like he did his ACL or broke a leg, so he is fit and probably even more ambitious to get success.”
Ivan Toney’s impact is predicted to be comparable to that of Erling Haaland.
“I have no doubt that he will be completely focused. I do not wish to lose him. On February 1, I believe and hope that he will play for Brentford.
This season, Arteta has used Leandro Trossard, Eddie Nketiah, and Gabriel Jesus up front, with Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka on the wings, all to varying degrees of success. The Gunners’ lack of fluidity and free-flowing play from the previous season, when they nearly defeated Manchester City to win the title, has been a frequent criticism, though.
Arsenal, who are currently ranked inside the top four, have scored the fewest goals in 13 league games—27—of any team. Toney could be a viable option if they take Seaman’s advice, but they should be cautious of Chelsea’s potential interference.
