Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony believes Liverpool should sign Brentford star Ivan Toney.
The striker was sold by Peterborough last year and then played a key role in the Bees winning promotion to the Premier League.
And MacAnthony, a Liverpool fan, reckons Toney would fit in at Anfield – and has predicted that the player will go on to represent England.
MacAnthony told the Peterborough Telegraph: “I’m a Liverpool fan and I know my players. And I’d be delighted if we signed Ivan. Give me him over (Divock) Origi any day of the week.
“Liverpool cross the ball with quality for fun and imagine Ivan getting on the end of those crosses from those full-backs!
“Ivan is only 24/25 and not yet at the peak of his powers. I can see him scoring 15 goals for Brentford and I can see him playing for England next season.”
The deal that took Toney to west London worked out well for both clubs.
Brentford’s promotion earned Posh another £1m and MacAnthony’s club would net a slice of any sell-on fee if he is sold.
MacAnthony said: “Obviously we’ve done well financially from Ivan’s transfer and we could do better down the line, but I don’t mind him staying at Brentford either as we get paid if they stay in the Premier League.”
