Tottenham Hotspur set to offer £40 million for Ivan Toney

Tottenham are reportedly ready to offer £40 million to sign Ivan Toney this summer from Brentford to add a new centre-forward to their ranks. 

According to Football Transfers, Tottenham are reportedly willing to offer £40 million to sign Ivan Toney this summer. Brentford may have wanted to keep him, but he will be forced by the circumstances surrounding the striker’s contract, as the Spurs are eager to add an experienced center-forward to their ranks. 

Tottenham to make £40 million Ivan Toney bid?

Ivan Toney has been the subject of a potential transfer away from Brentford since January, and in the summer, he might get his big move. Arsenal and Chelsea have all seen links with the forward, with the Bees asking for a £100 million fee around the start of the year, which has since dropped significantly. 

Toney is in the last year of his deal, and Brentford would not want to lose him on the free. There were suggestions that he could stay and run down his contract, although should a decent enough offer arrive, the Bees might resort to selling him rather than forcing the issue to keep him on board. 

Tottenham had been open to paying decent money, and now the suggestions point towards Spurs reportedly readying a £40 million bid for Toney. Ange Postecoglou wants to add a proven striker to his ranks and might see the Brentford star as someone of a readymade quality to deliver immediately. 

The report suggests a fee in that range might please Brentford, as they might accept Spurs’ offer should it arrive. Adding Toney to the mix will make Tottenham somewhat secure in the forward area, as they might then look to part ways with Richarlison after two below-par campaigns since his £60 million move from Everton two years prior. 

Tottenham plans to improve the attack

Tottenham plans to reinforce the attack, with Postecoglou looking to fortify the forward line. They have already signed Timo Werner on another loan deal, but that does not guarantee the German a starting berth. In fact, should they sign Toney, Heung-min Son could move back to the left-sided role, where he has been excellent over the years. 

There might be room for another attacking midfielder, with Morgan Gibbs-White linked with a move. Furthermore, they could also consider strengthening the right wing area after Dejan Kulusevski’s below-par season.
