Chelsea and West Ham eyeing Toney – but Frank confident he will stay

Chelsea and West Ham are among clubs battling to sign Brentford striker Ivan Toney, according to The Sun.

Toney has scored 30 goals this season and a number of Premier League sides have been linked with him.

Reports have suggested he could be sold this summer even if Brentford win promotion from the Championship via the play-offs.

And The Sun says Chelsea and West Ham are showing an interest in Toney ahead of a possible £35m move.

However, Brentford manager Thomas Frank is completely convinced the club will keep Toney if they make it to the top flight.

They don’t need to sell, having banked millions from the sale of players in recent years.

Frank recently told West London Sport he was “confident we will keep him 100%” if his team are successful in the play-offs.

He continued: “Ivan will be a Premier League player – there is no doubt he will be there.

“We like to keep players for two or three seasons, and if we go up I can’t see a better place than us to play, no matter where he could go.

“Here he has proved he can do well and he knows the team and his team-mates.”
