SPORTEPL: ‘They’ve good relationship with Brentford’ – McManaman names club Ivan Toney will join in January

Former Real Madrid midfielder, Steve McManaman, has insisted that Brentford striker Ivan Toney could join Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Toney is currently in the midst of an eight-month suspension after pleading guilty to 232 betting charges a few months ago.

The England international will be back to action in January.

Many believe Toney will move on from Brentford once his suspension comes to an end, even though his contract runs until 2025.

But McManaman believes the 27-year-old will join Arsenal over Liverpool.

“I believe Liverpool have enough forwards at the moment and they don’t need to make it six,” McManaman told Betfred (as quoted by the Express).

“If Mo Salah leaves in the summer then maybe this move would make sense but once January comes, I believe that Arsenal could be a spiritual home for Ivan Toney.

“I know that Arsenal and Brentford have a really good relationship so maybe that would be a much easier route to take for Ivan.”
