Ivan toney

Arsenal, despite spending a hefty sum in the summer, may seek reinforcements in the upcoming January transfer window. They’ve had a strong start in the Premier League, positioning themselves as potential title contenders. However, there remain some weak spots in Mikel Arteta’s squad that need addressing. One name that keeps coming up is 27-year-old Ivan Toney, a standout player from Brentford. Toney is currently serving a suspension due to alleged gambling issues, but he’ll be eligible to return on January 17. This has caught the attention of top clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea.

Arsenal are in need of a reliable goal-scorer, especially with Gabriel Jesus’ recent injury underscoring the necessity for more options upfront. Although Eddie Nketiah had a remarkable hat-trick against Sheffield United, reports suggest that Arsenal recognize the importance of signing a forward to strengthen their squad.
