Newcastle United are interested in signing Ivan Toney from Brentford. Also, Manchester United wants this deal. Here is the latest Newcastle transfer news.
Newcastle United are looking for a new striker. Callum Wilson, the main man up top for the Magpies who scored the highest number of goals last season for the club, will have his contract expire by the end of this season. Therefore, Newcastle would be hoping for a new striker as soon as possible. Now, one striker that many top Premier League clubs will keep an eye on will be Ivan Toney of Brentford. The interest from Manchester United in the Bees striker is well-known to everyone in the Premier League. Also, Tottenham Hotspurs didn’t replace Harry Kane with another striker. They will also be watching this situation with Ivan Toney who is highly regarded at the club.
Should Newcastle United sign Ivan Toney from Brentford?
Last season, in 31 appearances, Callum Wilson scored 18 goals for Newcastle in the Premier League making him the highest goal scorer for the Magpies. However, Ivan Toney scored 20 goals in 33 appearances for Brentford in the Premier League. No wonder why most clubs kept an eye on the Bretford striker. However, the Bees striker is banned from playing this season due to 232 FA rules breaches.
Ivan Toney played for Newcastle United in the 2015/16 season in the Premier League where he made two substitute appearances. So, it will be a reunion for Toney if he decides to join his former club. He also changed his agent which is a sign that he is looking for a move. Therefore, having Ivan Toney up top will be a huge boost for the Magpies next season as Eddie Howe’s team has had a miserable start to the current campaign after losing three games in a row against Manchester City, Brighton, and Liverpool.
So, do you think Newcastle United will sign Ivan Toney? Will he be a good signing for the Magpies? Let us know in the comments!
