According to a revelation from Dean Jones, despite plans to recruit Ivan Toney, Chelsea does not guarantee that Toney will get a starting spot every week or build a squad around this striker. Besides, Jones affirmed that the Blues still strongly support Nicolas Jackson.
British journalist said:
“I have to admit, I don’t think Chelsea will tell Ivan Toney that he is guaranteed to be number 9 in the lineup start them, and that they will build the squad around him.”
“They recruited Nicolas Jackson and supported him, this player is also just starting to build his confidence. What effect will that deal have on Jackson, if Ivan Toney is told he will start every game?”
“I think one of the reasons why Chelsea want to bring in an elite striker comes from the fact that they want to own a player with a strong mentality in attack, demonstrating what it takes to become a number one. 9 of the club.”
