Brentford is now interested in a Chelsea attacker this month; Ivan Toney may be traded in his place

Ivan toney

According to journalist Simon Phillips, Chelsea might have been offered a different path to acquiring Brentford striker Ivan Toney this week.

He informed his Substack that. He has now heard their fellow Premier League side are interested in a deal to sign Armando Broja. If he becomes available.

According to numerous reports, Broja may be surplus to requirements this month given the rumored transfer plans at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are aware of their on-field problems and are reportedly considering making a move for a striker this month, according to numerous reports.

Although it has been widely stated that Victor Osimhen is the Blues’ top target. There are still reports that tie them to the signing of Toney.

Now, according to Phillips, a new opportunity to sign the Englishman has presented itself in the shape of one of their own players.

Chelsea could do swap deal for Toney

He said: “He would have to push for a move, because Brentford are throwing around silly valuations at the moment. I get a feeling he would also need to drop on the signing on fee, because that’s been an issue. He’s open to Chelsea, but as we know, would also love to join Arsenal.

The trump card that Chelsea could play here. IF they decided they want to go for Toney if the need for a striker this month overpowers everything, is Armando Broja. I understand Brentford are one of the clubs interested in signing Broja.

All the top outlets have suggested Broja would likely leave if Chelsea sign a new striker this window. Whether he would be interested in Brentford or not remains to be seen. But they are, so perhaps Chelsea could sweeten any deal that way.
