Arsenal’s pursuit of attacking reinforcements has intensified, with Toney emerging as a prime target following his impressive displays in the Premier League this season. Romano, speaking to CaughtOffside for his latest Daily Briefing column, shed light on the uncertainty surrounding Toney’s valuation and the level of interest in the English forward.

While refraining from discrediting the reports circulating in the media, Romano emphasised that the information he has received contradicts some of the prevailing narratives regarding Toney’s potential transfer fee.

However, with Toney edging closer to the final year of his contract, the summer transfer window presents a different scenario, albeit one where Brentford is expected to command a substantial fee for their prized asset.

“There’s been fresh speculation again about the Brentford star, who could be one to watch this summer as he approaches the final year of his contract. There was interest in Toney in January but at that time Brentford were insisting only on crazy proposals to let him go, and so a deal didn’t materialise. 

“For the summer it could be different, and his price tag could be lower, but my understanding is it would not be quite as low as the £30-40m some reports have stated.”

“I don’t like to deny what my other colleagues are claiming as anyone has their sources and information. Still, my information is not the same, in this moment I’m told Brentford want more than this reported fee. My understanding is also that there are still no talks taking place with any club, so for sure the number of clubs involved in the race will be key to understand the final price.”
