West Ham United have received a welcome boost in their pursuit of Brentford striker Ivan Toney, according to a new report yesterday

West Ham are actively seeking an attacking reinforcement for the upcoming season, and Toney has emerged as a key target.

The 28-year-old has impressed since joining Brentford in 2020, playing a key role in their promotion and establishing himself as a consistent Premier League performer. A recent return from suspension hasn’t seen him at his best, but his overall record remains attractive to several club

With his contract expiring in 2025 and a desire to play for a bigger club, Toney is unlikely to sign a new deal with Brentford. This makes a summer transfer a strong possibility, as Brentford wouldn’t want to lose him for free next year.

Despite a recent slump, Toney remains on the wishlist of several top clubs, including Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Chelsea, struggling for goals this season, see Toney as a potential partner for Cole Palmer. Tottenham, under Ange Postecoglou, is also looking for a top striker, and Toney fits the bill.

West Ham, however, appear to be frontrunners in this transfer race. Looking for a replacement for Michail Antonio, they believe Toney could be a perfect fit. Furthermore, a significant drop in Brentford’s asking price has strengthened their position. Brentford’s valuation has become more realistic due to Toney’s contract situation.

Overall, West Ham finds itself in a favourable position to sign Ivan Toney. His desire to leave Brentford, combined with a reduced price tag, makes him a potentially ideal target for the Hammers’ attacking woes.
