Ivan Toney has admitted he will join Liverpool whenever the opportunity arises, stating he’d play even as a bit-part player.
Ivan Toney has taken the Premier League by storm. With Brentford performing the way they are, the striker has become a key star in Thomas Frank’s setup. With his performances, many sides are expected to make their interest known in the coming transfer windows.
However, Toney’s heart is set on a dream move to Liverpool and he is ready to take his chances even if it means playing less. The striker certainly looks capable of fitting into the club’s profile from a physical aspect; he may also fit into their system from a tactical standpoint.
Liverpool are one of the most in-form sides this season domestically and in Europe. Scoring plenty of goals has become a theme for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, and their attackers are all in a rich vein of form. At the moment, there may not be a need for a new central striker, with Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota well established.
However, one never knows what transpires in football, especially in any given transfer window. Firmino is in his thirties while Divock Origi has been linked with an exit in recent months. So, Liverpool could need a striker and court Toney in the future. And, his performances so far, particularly against the Reds, suggest that he could be useful in any top team’s setup.
Toney did admit his love and support for Liverpool, as he told Total Media via Liverpool Echo about his admiration for the club. He suggested being ready to sign for the Reds even on a bit-part role.
Toney said, “I support Liverpool. If they come knocking who knows? Who knows. I’d have to go to Liverpool and make myself the main man.”
Those words are strong and full of confidence. Toney certainly comes across as a mentally strong individual who has shown no sense of fear whatsoever when facing some of the big teams since Brentford’s promotion to the Premier League.
He has played a vital role in many of those games, particularly against Arsenal on opening day and in the exciting 3-3 draw with Liverpool. Toney has the calibre to become a top player or ‘main man’ as he suggested, at any of the top teams in England. As for a move to Liverpool, only time will tell if it materialises in the future.
