Arsenal Eye 20 League goals Striker in Potential Swap Deal
In a recent development, it has come to light that Arsenal is actively exploring the possibility of a swap deal to secure the services of Brentford’s prolific striker, Ivan Toney, in the upcoming January transfer window.
Notably, both Arsenal and Chelsea have shown a keen interest in the talented striker, underlining the Premier League’s recognition of Toney’s exceptional goal-scoring abilities. Despite Arsenal’s promising start to the season, there have been growing concerns about their offensive firepower, with Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus struggling to consistently find the back of the net.
As of now, the duo has managed to accumulate a mere three Premier League goals between them this campaign. The lack of consistent goal-scoring has prompted speculation of Arsenal’s intention to make a strong bid for Ivan Toney in the winter transfer window. Reports from The Mirror indicate that Arsenal has intensified its pursuit of the striker.
What’s particularly intriguing is that Arsenal is contemplating the possibility of offering players as part of the deal, as revealed by 90min. This signals the Gunners’ determination to bolster their attacking options and secure Toney’s services.
It’s worth noting that Brentford has downplayed suggestions that they might consider selling their star striker for a fee of £60 million. Instead, sources indicate that the Bees are likely to demand a significant sum in excess of £75 million.
In this context, Arsenal appears willing to meet Brentford’s financial demands, but the club is also considering the option of player exchanges as part of the negotiations.
This strategic move showcases Arsenal’s commitment to adding depth and quality to their squad while securing Ivan Toney’s goal-scoring prowess.
