The £80 million Brentford striker Ivan Toney has changed the dynamics of the transfer race by disclosing why he chose Arsenal over Chelsea. Chelsea was once thought to be the favorites, but their play this year has hurt their chances of getting the desired player.
As the January transfer window draws near, the Evening Standard reports that Arsenal is now leading the chase for Toney. The talented 27-year-old striker, who scored 20 Premier League goals for Brentford the season before, is expected to play again next month after serving a suspension.
Ivan Toney’s transfer market has taken an intriguing turn, with Arsenal emerging as the front-runner despite Chelsea and Tottenham’s interest in the center-forward.
