In an effort to make a splash upon his return to action this winter, Ivan Toney is willing to leave Brentford as early as January. The Brentford forward met with Bees manager Thomas Frank at the beginning of the week to discuss his future in west London. He returned to team training on Monday for the first time since being barred from all football-related activity in May after breaking FA betting laws.

Toney is believed to have respectfully expressed his wish to advance in his career despite his devotion to Brentford, and the Bees are willing to accommodate him if their £60 million valuation is reached.

The 27-year-old, who turns 28 in March, is being courted by Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham. In January, he is scheduled to begin the last 18 months of his current contract.

Brentford set Ivan Toney transfer stance as Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham  face bidding war -

The unimpressive Blues are still kicking themselves for not bringing in a marquee striker for Mauricio Pochettino this summer, but that will probably change in the winter transfer window.

Toney has long been a favorite of Arsenal, and Spurs have yet to find a like-for-like replacement for Harry Kane after the latter’s expensive sale to Bayern Munich.

Toney’s suspension has highlighted how valuable time is in sport. As a result, the Brentford talisman is now prepared to seriously consider leaving the club after signing with Jonathan Barnett’s esteemed agency CAA Stellar, saying: “It feels like a fresh beginning. Never undervalue your ability to change the course of your life.

In anticipation of Toney’s exit, Brentford scouts are already hard at work compiling a shortlist of potential successors.

Frank said “Yeah” when asked whether he anticipates bids for Toney to arrive at Brentford’s door in January on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football. I’m only thinking about Brentford.

“I had a lengthy conversation with him; it was great to see him again. We explained the strategy to him, and now we’re just working to make Ivan Toney 2.0—the beast.

Later, when speaking about his center-forward, he continued, “For me, he’s one of the finest strikers; as a striker No. 9, I don’t see many out there who are better in the world than him; of course, there are players like [Harry] Kane, [Robert] Lewandowski, [Erling] Haaland, and these types; but there aren’t many.

He scored 20 goals in the Premier League last season while playing for a Brentford club that was undoubtedly very good, but we are undoubtedly not producing as many chances as the top six or seven teams.

So if you put him on a top squad, he would probably score 20, 25, or more goals for you. I believe he is composed, a strong finisher, and has a top attitude, so I can see why clubs are interested in him.

Brentford was ready to make a major play on the attempts to sign a new star forward this summer were unsuccessful despite club-record offers for Brennan Johnson of Tottenham, Nicolas Gonzalez of Fiorentina, and Johan Bakayoko of PSV.

Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa have both had strong beginnings to the season, giving Brentford fans confidence that things won’t be quite as bad without Toney.

On the day of the transfer deadline, Neal Maupay was returned to the club on loan from Everton, although Bees manager Frank only sees the Frenchman as a short-term fix.

Currently, club scouts are looking for a long-term successor for Toney, who scored 20 Premier League goals in west London last season.
