Tottenham distance themselves with reports linking them with a move for Premier League star

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham plan to sign a new striker this transfer window and have been linked with several players including Ivan Toney, Dominic Solanke, Jonathan David, and Santiago Gimenez in recent months.

One player strongly linked with a move is the Brentford striker. Recent reports have claimed that the England striker has agreed personal terms with the club.

Reports also claimed that Spurs had an initial bid rejected for him, although those reports were swiftly dismissed by Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.

And now, Alasdair Gold of Football.London has also reported that sources within the club have distanced themselves from pursuing a move for Toney at this stage.

Despite earlier interest, it seems Tottenham’s pursuit of the Brentford striker may not be as strong as initially thought.

Toney was considered an appealing option for Spurs, given his consistent performances over the years.

In the 2022-23 season, the England international was the third-highest scorer in the Premier League, netting 20 goals in 33 league games, behind only Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.

Toney’s ability to contribute beyond just scoring goals makes him a valuable asset, capable of addressing several attacking needs for the Lilywhites.

The 28-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with Brentford, set to expire next June, seemed like a viable candidate for a move this summer.

However, Gold’s latest update suggests that those within Tottenham are now distancing themselves from a move for Toney. This shift could indicate a change in transfer strategy or a reassessment of their options in the market.

Toney has been on Spurs’ radar for some time, and his potential transfer to North London has excited many fans, especially given his goal-scoring prowess and involvement in England’s squad for the ongoing European Championship in Germany.

Meanwhile, fresh reports suggest it is Jonathan David who is emerging as the leading candidate for Tottenham’s striker solution.

As the transfer window progresses, it remains to be seen how Tottenham will address their need for a reliable striker.
