Report: Tottenham could sign incredible Premier League star for just £40m, he’s a “ready-made goalscorer”

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham’s primary focus lies in securing the services of a centre-forward, with recent developments heavily linking them with Brentford’s Ivan Toney.

The Lilywhites are contemplating a summer swoop for the England international, with the possibility of securing him at a reduced fee.

According to the latest Football Insider report, Tottenham could clinch Toney’s signature in North London for a relatively modest transfer fee of £40 million.

The 28-year-old is approaching the final year of his contract with Brentford, which is set to expire in June of the following year.

The Bees would be forced to let their seasoned striker leave this summer, aiming to fetch a transfer fee close to his current market value. Otherwise, Toney could depart for free next year.

According to senior correspondent Pete O’Rourke on the Inside Track podcast, Toney’s departure seems increasingly plausible, and Spurs is keen to capitalise on this opportunity.

Ange Postecoglou would undoubtedly hope to have a number 9 of Toney’s calibre at his disposal, specially considering him as a “ready-made goalscorer,” as described by O’Rourke.

During the 2022-23 season, the former Newcastle forward enjoyed a stellar campaign, bagging an impressive 20 goals in 33 league appearances.

The tally positioned him as the third-highest scorer in the division, trailing only behind Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.

With a career spanning over 350 appearances across the four English Football League divisions and contributing to around 200 goals directly, Toney’s wealth of experience and quality could potentially make an immediate impact for Tottenham.
