Ivan Toney's price-tag 'plummets' as one club pulls out of race to sign him

Ivan Toney's price-tag 'plummets' as one club pulls out of race to sign him

Ivan Toney's price tag appears to have plummeted.

Ivan Toney’s price tag has plummeted ahead of the summer transfer window, it has been claimed.

Back in November various publications, including Sky Sports News, claimed Brentford valued Toney at £100million, amid reported interest from Chelsea and Arsenal.

It was said at the time that only a monumental offer would convince the Brentford hierarchy to sell, with reports of a £50million-£60million fee having been met with derision in the club’s boardroom.

However, The Sun has now claimed the England international, who enters the last 12 months of his Bees contract in the summer, could be sold for just £30million to £40million.

Manchester United and Chelsea are said to be interested while West Ham are another Premier League outfit believed to be monitoring the situation, as per Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, The Sun have added that Arsenal have ruled themselves out of a move for the striker.

Brentford are currently languishing four points above the relegation zone, with manager Thomas Frank having already admitted he expects to lose Toney in the next transfer window.

Speaking after Brentford’s 2-0 win over Wolves back in February, Toney said: “I'm a Brentford player at the moment, nobody can predict the future.

“Whatever happens, happens but the main focus is to do well for Brentford, keep them in the league and keep getting goals and three points.

“I see that as he doesn't want me. The manager has said what he's said but I can't make clubs come and get me.

“I've just got to keep doing what I do and that's score goals. What will be will be.”

Meanwhile, Frank added: “The reality is he's got one more year left on his contract in the summer. I think he's been pretty open about playing for a top club in the future.

“There's a couple of scenarios; he leaves in the summer, he leaves in the winter, or he stays until the end.

“If he's leaving - whatever, summer, winter or the summer after - I think it will be fantastic seeing him playing for a top club.”
