Tottenham mentioned £50 million. Acceptance of Superstar offer…

Tottenham have been handed a huge boost in their bid to sign Ivan Toney from Brentford this summer after interest in the striker from elsewhere cooled.

Speaking on the latest edition of Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, senior correspondent Pete O’Rourke revealed that, while a deal would only be done on Spurs’ terms, a £50million fee should be enough to get it over the line.

Toney is seen as an option to ease the club’s striker issues, with 20 goals scored in his last full Premier League season catching the eye.

This season, the striker has four goals in 15 appearances after returning from a long-term ban for breaching the FA’s gambling rules.

O’Rourke explained that previous interest from the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea, as reported by Football Insider, has surprisingly eased, allowing a free run at the forward.

Since the departure of Harry Kane last summer, Ange Postecoglou’s team has been left without an orthodox central striker even though Heung-min Son has led the line impressively.

Toney’s ability to hold up play, bring his teammates into the game and score goals in abundance make him an ideal option and a top target for the club.

A £50million move could be a good deal for all parties, with Toney having joined Brentford for just £5million in 2020, allowing them to make a huge profit.

During that time, he has helped the club to achieve promotion and establish themselves in the Premier League.

For Spurs, meanwhile, they would be securing a deal for an England international with a proven track record of scoring goals in the Premier League.
