Brentford will hold out for around £50m if clubs make bids for Ivan Toney this summer, according to reports in the English media.
West Ham and Arsenal are both said to be tracking the 26-year-old, along with the likes of Newcastle, Wolves and Everton.
Toney has been in decent form, scoring 14 goals in all competitions for the Bees this campaign but his asking price is pretty steep. The Hammers have seemingly set aside some money for a new forward, after reportedly making a sizeable bid for Benfica’s Darwin Nunez in the January transfer window, but it would be a surprise if they were to invest such a large sum on Toney.
The player himself is thought to be pretty happy at Brentford, with a new contract in the works. If he does sign a new deal, it would only bolster Brentford’s position if teams do make offers at the end of the season.
