Glasgow Rangers have missed out on Ivan Toney, who has completed a move to Brentford.
The Gers had been linked with the striker, who previously played for Peterborough. The 24-year-old was in stunning form for Posh last season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions, despite the League One term being brought to a premature close due to the current pandemic.
Now, though, it has been confirmed that he has made a switch to the Championship club, with the Bees paying £5m for his services – the fee could rise to £10m with add-ons.
Of course, this is a blow for the Gers – Toney has proven himself to be a lethal striker, albeit at a lower level, and £5m is far from extortionate. However, Steven Gerrard has already managed to bring in Cedric Itten and Kemar Roofe during this transfer window as he prepares for life without Alfredo Morelos – he has already planned ahead.
Are you disappointed to have missed out on Ivan Toney?
Still, he will likely have an eye on how Toney deals with the step up in quality in the English second tier.
