According to Goal.com, Chelsea are preparing a bid for Brentford striker Ivan Toney in the upcoming January transfer window.
Chelsea have been truly miserable in front of goal this season. With just five goals and as many points from six Premier League games, they currently sit in 14th place, much closer to the relegation zone than the top four, a situation that is clearly unacceptable for a club that has spent as much money as they have. over the last three transfer windows.
As coach Mauricio Pochettino noted, his team is playing well, quite the contrary; they move the ball very quickly and create a lot of chances, but those chances usually go to waste. Nicholas Jackson, the striker they signed from Villarreal this summer, just isn’t scoring goals, and Romelu Lukaku has gone to Roma on a season-long loan.
Tony recently returned to training at Brentford after serving a suspension for betting offenses since May. Since joining the club in 2020, the 27-year-old has 68 goals and 21 assists in 124 games across all competitions for the Bees. Speaking to Sky Sports, Brentford boss Thomas Frank said every player has a price and confirmed it applies to Toney as well.
