Gabriel Agbonlahor urges Tottenham to sign Ivan Toney

Ivan Toney has been linked with a move away from Brentford in recent weeks, with Gabriel Agbonlahor urging Tottenham to sign him.

Arsenal and Tottenham have been linked with Ivan Toney, and Gabriel Agbonlahor has now urged Spurs to sign the 27-year-old ahead of their London rivals.

While speaking on talkSPORT, the former Aston Villa striker suggested that Tottenham should look to sign the 27-year-old if they are serious about winning the Premier League title this season. Tottenham has made an impressive start to the new campaign, and they are currently on top of the table.

Agbonlahor said, “Do Spurs go and get [Ivan] Toney? It’s the same question. If Spurs come to January and they’re in a title race what if Son [Heung-min] got injured, touch wood it doesn’t happen, or [James] Maddison? What then?”

Arsenal are close behind in second place, and the Gunners are thought to be looking to bring in a striker as well, with Toney being the top target. Although Arsenal have Gabriel Jesus at their disposal, the Brazilian international has not been a prolific goalscorer for them.

His overall footballing ability certainly makes up for that, but Arsenal could use a reliable finisher right now. The 27-year-old could make a huge difference in the final third for both teams, and he could galvanise the team during the second half of the campaign.

He will be well-rested for the second half of the campaign as he is currently suspended for breaching gambling regulations. It remains to be seen which of the two London clubs managed to secure his signature.

Toney is reportedly keen on joining a big club during the winter transfer window, and the opportunity to play for Tottenham and Arsenal will be an exciting option for him. Both clubs have been excellent this season, and they could well compete in the UEFA Champions League next season. It would be a major step up in the player’s career, and he will get to prove himself at a higher level.

Tottenham are yet to replace Harry Kane after selling him to Bayern Munich during the summer transfer window, and Son Heung-min has had to lead the line for them so far. The 31-year-old clearly needs more support in the attack and Toney could be a game-changer for Tottenham. He could be the ideal fit for Ange Postecoglou’s free-flowing attacking system as well, and the 27-year-old could help end Tottenham’s wait for silverware.
