According to Football Insider, Brentford will demand £100million for Chelsea transfer target Ivan Toney.

The Blues alongside Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are interested in signing the 27 year old striker in January, who is suspended until the new year amid FA betting charges.

When Toney’s ban expires on January 16 he will have 18 months left on his Brentford contract.

The Brentford striker is one of the best strikers in the Premier League after scoring 20 league goals in 33 games last season bettered only by Erling Haaland and Harry Kane.

Toney is already preparing for a January transfer having just switched agents, joining the renowned sports management firm CAA Stellar who have negotiated some of the most high profile transfers in world football, including Gareth Bale’s then-record move to Real Madrid in 2013.

CAA Stellar’s other clients also include Jack Grealish, Ben Chilwell, Kalvin Phillips, Nick Pope and James Ward-Prowse – all of whom have made big money transfers in recent years.
