Toney showcased remarkable goal-scoring prowess during his initial two seasons in the Premier League following Brentford’s promotion, positioning him as a target for larger clubs. However, a significant setback occurred when he received a lengthy ban for violating the FA’s betting regulations towards the end of the previous season, thereby thwarting any potential summer transfers.

Recent speculations indicated interest from Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea in securing the 27-year-old’s services once his ban concludes in January, according to the Daily Express. Yet, conflicting reports emerged from CaughtOffside on Monday, suggesting a duel between Chelsea and Arsenal for Toney, with Spurs allegedly prioritizing a move for Feyenoord’s Santiago Gimenez.

Adding to the discourse, former Newcastle manager Pardew expressed his anticipation of Toney joining Arsenal. In a talkSPORT interview on November 12th, he remarked, “Toney is, for me, the signing (big clubs should aim for) in January. Whoever gets him, I think, will be really fortunate. I think he will end up at Arsenal, actually.”

In contrast, the Spurs Web Opinion contends that Tottenham is unlikely to meet the financial demands necessary to secure Toney’s transfer. Furthermore, they posit that the club’s manager, Ange Postecoglou, may prefer a more agile center-forward, aligning with the rumors surrounding Santiago Gimenez, making the prospect of Toney joining Spurs less plausible.
