Bees Decline Arsenal Offer for Toney, Chelsea Interested in Transfer

The latest buzz in football transfer news is that Brentford is determined to keep forward Ivan Toney, despite interest from clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea. Toney has just 18 months left on his contract and is currently serving an eight-month ban for breaking FA betting rules. However, once his ban is completed in January, Brentford manager Thomas Frank is ready to welcome him back into the first team and even back him with a new deal.

The club is open to negotiating a deal for Toney if the right price is offered, which was previously £60 million when Arsenal was interested and may now be as high as £100 million. With Brentford losing several players during the Africa Cup of Nations, it’s unlikely that Toney will be allowed to leave West London in January.

Additionally, there are reports of Real Madrid targeting Galatasaray forward Mauro Icardi, Manchester City’s Joel Ndala attracting interest from Premier League and European clubs, and Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite topping Manchester United’s defensive wish list in 2024. Barcelona is also looking to fast-track the signing of Brazilian forward Vitor Roque following Gavi’s season-ending injury.

Furthermore, Saudi Arabian clubs are reportedly monitoring the situation of Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen and could potentially make a €20 million offer for the Dane. This comes as part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is reportedly looking for a squad reset at the club.
The winter transfer window is yet to reopen in Europe, but there is much anticipation regarding potential moves and rumors. Transfer Talk provides the latest information on all ongoing transfer buzz, including rumors, arrivals, departures, and completed deals.

In the top story, Brentford is determined to retain forward Ivan Toney, despite ongoing interest from prestigious clubs such as Arsenal and Chelsea. Toney, who has just 18 months left on his contract, has been candid about his aspirations to compete in the Champions League and secure a regular place in the England squad.

With the ban period ending in January, Brentford manager Thomas Frank is prepared to integrate Toney back into the team and has confirmed the possibility of offering him a new contract. Although Toney could be sold for the right amount, speculated to be around £100 million or more due to the departure of several key players from Brentford’s squad during the Africa Cup of Nations.
