West Bromwich Albion are supposedly set to rival Celtic and Rangers for the finalizing of Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney.
West Bromwich Albion have supposedly joined the race to sign Peterborough United striker Ivan Toney
The former Newcastle United forward, who is this season’s League One leading goalscorer netting 24 times, has actually been targeted by a variety of clubs in this summer’s transfer window.
Old Firm set Celtic and Rangers have actually both been linked with the 24- year-old and the Birmingham Mail reports that the Baggies are to rival both Scottish clubs, with Peterborough chairman Barry Fry recommending that possible suitors would have to pay around ₤15 m for his services.
“I’ve had agents on telling me that Rangers and Celtic are very interested. But I haven’t had any calls from either Rangers or Celtic, personally,” the 75- years of age stated.
“If they have any sense, they’ll pay us £15m to get him. If they haven’t any sense at all, then I won’t be hearing from them.”
The EFL verified previously today that the 2019-20 League One campaign would be cut, with Peterborough losing out on a playoff position due to a points- per-game system choosing the league’s result.
Fry confessed back in April that the Posh would find it very hard to keep hold of Toney if they didn’t win promo.
