At this time, Arsenal was still eager to reinforce their attack. They spent more than 200 million pounds last summer, of which Kai Havertz alone cost them 65 million pounds. However, the German player has not yet made any significant contributions.
Former Peterborough United Club president Darragh MacAnthony believes Arsenal should have signed Ivan Toney instead of Havertz.
“Arsenal, instead of Havertz, should have bought him in August,” MacAnthony told talkSPORT.
“Ivan Toney will guarantee them the title. If Arsenal top the league in January and sign Ivan Toney, it guarantees they will win the title. Technically, he has unbelievable qualities.”
However, the reality is that it will not be easy to get Toney’s signature in January. Sky Sports believes that Brentford will ask for up to £100 million for the English striker, with Toney having less than two years left on his contract. .
At this time, Toney is serving a suspension from the FA but he will return to the field in the New Year.
