Exclusive: Real Madrid join Ivan Toney transfer chase as striker gives Arsenal, Chelsea his answer.



Real Madrid joins the exclusive pursuit of Ivan Toney for a transfer as the striker responds to Arsenal and Chelsea.TEAMtalk has learned that despite interest from Chelsea, Arsenal, and now Real Madrid, Ivan Toney may remain with Brentford for the upcoming season.

Numerous elite clubs are keeping Toney in mind as the January transfer window approaches and clubs seek to augment their lineup with a goalscorer. Presently serving an eight-month suspension for 232 violations of the FA’s wagering regulations, the Brentford forward is on suspension.


The summer transfer window was dominated by midfielders, but by January, No. 9s will be the most discussed player. Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Arsenal are among the clubs eager to add a new forward. Madrid is reportedly among the clubs monitoring the 27-year-old in an effort to replace Karim Benzema, who left for the lucrative Saudi Pro League in the summer, according to sources in Spain. In an effort to construct a new Galactico squad, they acquired England midfielder Jude Bellingham over the summer.


According to sources close to Toney, he is not hastening to decide on his future, and it is possible that he will remain with Brentford. Regardless, he is content at the club and will not be able to play again until January 17.The striker will be offered a new contract by the Bees in an effort to persuade him that a transfer is unnecessary. His current deal is set to expire in 2025, with one year remaining on his deal at the conclusion of the current campaign. However, Thomas Frank’s squad will be hoping to secure him to new terms prior to that time.


Additionally, Arsenal has joined Chelsea in the contest for £120 million. Victor Osimhen’s transfer is disclosed as the player’s preference.

Chelsea have placed Toney on their shortlist, but acquiring Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is the club’s primary objective. Both the club’s hierarchy and manager Mauricio Pochettino consider the Nigerian to be the ideal player to propel them back to the top of the Premier League standings. Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, is another admirer of Toney; however, he has instructed his staff to compete with Chelsea for Osimhen and acquire the striker he considers to be the finest in Europe. Furthermore, after 18 months of trying to acquire Inter Milan captain Lautaro Martinez, the Gunners remain interested in signing him.


Toney, an England international, is reportedly bound by a release clause in his current contract worth approximately £60 million. However, sources have refuted the existence of such a clause. However, it is probable that any prospective agreement that might be executed would incorporate a release clause.


Toney inked a contract with Brentford in 2020, following an impressive season at Peterborough. The transaction was completed for less than £5 million, and should their star player be sold, Frank and his team would realize a tremendous profit.
