Tottenham not prepared to shell out £60 million to sign Ivan Toney

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a summer move for 28-year-old Brentford striker Ivan Toney in recent months.

It is no secret that Tottenham Hotspur are looking to bring in a quality striker, and Ivan Toney could prove to be a solid acquisition. However, Give Me Sport are now claiming that the North London club are unwilling to pay £60 million for the 28-year-old striker.

It will be interesting to see if Brentford are willing to reduce their demands and sell him for a more reasonable price. Toney will want to leave the club this summer and join someone capable of competing for trophies. A move to Tottenham will be an exciting opportunity for him, and he will hope that the two clubs can finalise an agreement soon.

There is no doubt that the 28-year-old is one of the finest strikers in the Premier League right now. But the £60 million asking price seems quite steep. Brentford will have to be more reasonable with their demands in order for the move to go through. It seems unlikely that any club would be willing to pay the reported asking price.

Can Tottenham afford Toney?

Spurs will have to strengthen the other areas of their squad as well, and they cannot afford to shell out £60 million on a striker. They have missed a clinical presence up front since the departure of Harry Kane. Players like Son Heung-min and Richarlison have done a decent job this season. But Tottenham must look to sign a reliable goal scorer in the summer.

Toney would be the ideal acquisition for them, and he seems like the ideal fit for the style of play as well. The 28-year-old is at the peak of his powers, and he will look to make an instant impact at the London club. Although the North London outfit will not be competing in the Champions league next season, the might be competing in the Europa League. Toney will be able to showcase his qualities in European football with them.

Apart from his goalscoring ability, the 28-year-old is exceptional when it comes to holding up the ball and bringing others into the play. His ability on the ball will help Tottenham create goal scoring opportunities in the final third and breakdown opposition defences.

The North London outfit have been linked with other strikers, including Santiago Gimenez, as well, and it remains to be seen whether they decide to move on to other options if Brentford refuse to lower their demands.
