Ivan Toney may be acquired by Chelsea during the summer transfer window for around £40 million, according to recent rumors.
Romelu Lukaku, however, was allowed to depart Chelsea and return to Italian football for the upcoming season since the club decided he would not be joining them from Inter Milan in the coming summer.
Armando Broja is not yet ready to lead this Chelsea assault to the Premier League title, therefore Thomas Tuchel will need to buy a new attacker. Timo Werner has been in the news frequently over his potential departure from the club.
Toney has been connected with Chelsea because the team has so many attacking alternatives, but they lack a forward who will hold the ball up, win things in the air, and provide the attack something unique.
However, Brentford have placed a £40 million price tag on their top player this summer knowing that all the major clubs are considering a possible purchase. This is especially true considering that many think he would be a 20-goal striker if he made the transition to the next level.
They are aware that should an offer come in, they will not be able to hold onto the power, but they won’t be lowering their asking price significantly.
