In the January transfer window, Chelsea is getting ready to make a huge offer for Brentford striker Ivan Toney.
The striker is back in training with the Bees despite following an eight-month ban for gambling charges.
Toney is expected to make his comeback in January, but there is still a lot of interest in signing the striker despite his extended layoff.
The 27-year-old has had time to think during his hiatus, and while he appreciates Brentford’s support, he believes it’s time to part ways with the team.
Mikel Arteta is keen to bolster his forward line with further firepower, and Arsenal has expressed interest in Toney.
However, Brentford has made a request for Toney of almost £80 million, and Arsenal would not entertain a bid below that amount.
Nicolas Jackson has been overused by Chelsea this season, despite his 14 appearances and seven goals. The former Villarreal player has struggled at times.
With lots of time remaining at the top at 27, Toney would be a more dependable target man.
Chelsea is reportedly getting ready to make a bid for the forward, per Football.London.
After Todd Boehly took control, Chelsea has spent more than £1.2 billion, and they are prepared to support Mauricio Pochettino once more in January.
This season, goals have been hard to come by, but the Blues have scored eight goals in their last two games against Man City and Spurs.
