West Ham ‘looking towards’ Brentford striker Ivan Toney

West Ham ‘looking towards’ Brentford striker Ivan Toney

Ivan Toney’s West Ham stint

After Ollie Watkins departed for Aston Villa during the delayed summer transfer window, Brentford required fresh legs to replace a man who netted 25 goals in 46 Championship outings last season.

The player the Bees settled on was Ivan Toney, whom they signed from League One outfit Peterborough.

Toney had netted 26 times in League One across the previous campaign, an impressive return.

But few were likely expecting the 24-year-old to prove quite as prolific as he has since been in the Championship.

Across 27 appearances in the English 2nd-tier, Toney has already found the net on 22 occasions, as well as providing seven assists.

Such fine form has seen Brentford move to within a point of table-topping Norwich, whom they also boast a game in hand over.

West Ham eyeing Ivan Toney

Now, though, on the back of a simply sensational start to life at Brentford, Toney has unsurprisingly piqued attentions in the Premier League.

The outfit tipped to move for the Englishman, on Tuesday, are West Ham United.

The Hammers sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax last month.

This has, of course, reduced the club’s options at centre-forward.

In turn, David Moyes and co. appeared to be in the market for some fresh legs up top throughout the January window.

West Ham were linked with the likes of Arkadiusz Milik (who has since joined Marseille), Sevilla hitman Youssef En-Nesyri and Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard.

No such move, in the end, was forthcoming, but, according to a recent report from EuroSport, West Ham are looking towards Toney as a potential signing in the summer.

No potential fee is mentioned in the piece, but it feels safe to assume that it would require a sizable sum for Brentford to part with their star man.
