Brentford

Leicester City and Everton join Tottenham in hunt for 30-goal EFL hitman

Leicester City and Everton are both preparing offers to try and sign Ivan Toney this summer, according to The Athletic.

The Brentford striker has enjoyed a wonderful season so far after scoring 30 goals and creating 10 more for his teammates as the Bees continue their battle to secure promotion to the Premier League.

Thomas Frank’s side have had a good season but find themselves set for a spot in the play-offs, meaning that any hopes of playing top flight football next term are hanging in the balance.

It’s that uncertainty that has led to speculation around Toney’s future.

Reports have suggested that the likes of Tottenham Hotspur could be keen on a move for the 25-year-old, while other clubs are also said to be keen.

The Athletic are claiming that Leicester City and Everton are keen, with both clubs seemingly interested in bolstering their attacking lines.

Brendan Rodgers could be gearing up at add competition for places with Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy their current attacking options, while for the Toffees Carlo Ancelotti could be looking to provide support for Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Given Toney’s impressive goalscoring record during his career so far it would take a brave man to bet against him taking to life in the Premier League like a duck to water.

The verdict

It looks fairly likely that Ivan Toney will be playing in the Premier League next term.

The player has been a revelation in the Championship and it would be a huge surprise if he was to stay in the second tier next term given just how well he’s done.

Whether Leicester City or Everton will make a move remains to be seen, but there will be no shortage of interest.
