Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Ivan Toney

Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Ivan Toney -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly now eyeing up a move to sign Ivan Toney in the summer.

The Lowdown: Where it all started…

It is easy to forget that Toney used to play for the St. James’ Park faithful, but he only made a mere four senior appearances, and was subsequently sold to Peterborough United back in 2018 for just £351,000.

Now rated at £31.5m, the striker has scored 14 goals and made a further five assists in 32 matches in total over all competitions for Brentford so far this term (Transfermarkt), and is really showing his worth in the Premier League.

The Latest: Newcastle lurking

As per Football Insider, a recruitment source has revealed that both the North East club as well as Brighton and Hove Albion are among a number of teams that are ‘keeping close tabs’ on Toney, who is thought to cost at least £30m.

Should Newcastle sign Toney?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Eddie Howe is thought to be a ‘big admirer’ of his ‘pace, power and presence’, and thinks that he would ‘fit well’ in his side.

The Verdict: Sign

It would be a remarkable story if the Magpies decided to bring Toney back to Tyneside, and he would certainly be a signing that would excite the Toon Army.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

Described as ‘phenomenal‘ by Brentford chairman Cliff Crown, the 26-year-old has not reached his peak yet, and so he will feel as if there is another level that he can get to.

Howe’s team could be the main beneficiaries of that, should they be able to strike a deal with the Bees.
