PL manager admits his £80m star could be sold amid claims Tottenham want to sign him

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur target Ivan Toney will be sold if the right offer arrives in the winter window.

The Englishman is currently serving his ban and will not be available to play until the middle of January. Once he is allowed back, there is a big question mark around if he will still be a Brentford player.

Here’s what his manager had to say.

Thomas Frank admits Tottenham target Ivan Toney could be sold

Ivan Toney is a popular choice to succeed Harry Kane at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2024, even if Spurs have not yet found a suitable replacement.

In all competitions last season, the Englishman scored 21 goals and contributed five assists before receiving his suspension. Everyone believed he would be heading to a bigger club in the summer because he was one of the top strikers in the nation.

Those expectations were dashed by Toney’s suspension, but the January transfer market won’t be far off, and The Times reported earlier this month that Brentford is preparing for offers.

The Bees value the brilliant striker at an eye-popping £80 million, and Tottenham was reportedly one of several teams interested in signing him.

Frank was asked about Toney on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football yesterday, and he admitted that if the right offer arrives, Brentford will likely sell him in January.

With the exception of five or six teams, he declared, “I believe every club in the world is a selling club. In the event that the price is correct, we are a selling club.

“I think if the time is right for the player to leave, from my perspective that’s not my decision; in the end, that would be Phil [Giles, director of football] or Matthew [Benham, Brentford’s owner],” said the player. “Then I think it’s the right thing, if it’s the right price,” he added.

When questioned if Toney is included in the aforementioned, he responded, “Yeah, I think so!”

TBR View:

Tottenham have had a fantastic start to the season, and as things stand, their attack looks great.

However, despite Richarlison’s heroics against Sheffield United over the weekend, Ange Postecoglou could do with a prolific number nine to fill the void Kane has left.

Toney would be a fantastic option, and if Spurs can, they should get him.

However, Frank stressed that he would only be sold for the right fee, and that figure reportedly stands at £80 million at this moment in time.
