Toney to Chelsea or Arsenal?

Chelsea and Arsenal could go head-to-head to sign Brentford striker Ivan Toney when the transfer window reopens in January.

The England star was anticipated to secure a big-club move this year, but his plans were dashed after FA's eight-month ban for breaching betting rules.

Toney can restart training with the Bees after the international break, but he won't return to competitive action until mid-January.

It is now claimed by Football Insider that the marksman could be on the move this winter. He has interest from two London giants.

The Blues are yearning for a new striker with Nicolas Jackson flattering to deceive while Arsenal are long-term admirers of Toney.

Toney won't come on the cheap for either club in the next window. Brentford plan to demand as much as £80m to sanction his sale.

The 27-year-old was in sparkling form for the Bees in the last Premier League season. He netted 20 goals from 33 league games.
