He is currently away from the playing fields after being heavily sanctioned for violating sports betting rules, but there is no doubt that Ivan Toni, if you look strictly in a football plane, is one of the best strikers today.
star brentford ran a sensational campaign last year and only Erling Haaland and Harry Kane have scored more Premier League goals than the English striker. Behind were other award-winning footballers of the competition such as Mohamed Salah and Julian Alvarez… not forgetting Gabriel Jesus, the second great hero of these lines.
The Brazilian player missed most of the season due to a serious injury in the first months of the game, which began to create a chain of doubts about plans Mikel Arteta that the Spanish coach wanted to move to the management of Arsenal. Hence gunners began to explore the various options offered by the market with their last breath and in a completely unpredictable way, strike credibility by signing Ivan Toni, who can’t intervene until 2024… that’s the expiration date for his suspension.
With this and more in mind, it should be noted that it will not be easy for Arsenal’s top echelons to accommodate the aforementioned Arteta’s desire as, according to the latest report released by Time, Brentford set Tony’s starting price at £80m. The figure would make the player the second most expensive purchase in the London club’s history behind Declan Rice, the player who arrived at the Emirates Stadium this summer.
There is still a week left before the Premier League market closes, and Tony’s future will be one of the big questions in the competition. A signing that could be the key to Arsenal being able to take on Manchester City for the long haul for the title.
