Ivan Toney is set to change course

Tottenham’s pursuit of Brentford striker Ivan Toney (28, Brentford) is set to change course, according to reports.

According to the Football Transfer Tavern on Friday, Tottenham may not be able to complete a deal for Tony, who was their top target. Spurs are looking for a younger center forward.

The attacking midfielder joined Brentford in 2020 from the English Championship (Second Division), 바카라사이트 where he led the team’s attack and helped them win promotion.

He made a name for himself in the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season, scoring 20 goals and providing four assists, but returned in January of this year after serving an eight-month suspension for betting violations in May of last year. In the 2023-2024 season, he managed just four goals and two assists in 17 games.

Despite his ‘black history’, Tottenham were keeping an eye on him.

Earlier this month, another British outlet, TeamTalk, reported that “Tottenham’s top priority signing is Toney”. There were even reports that Spurs and Tottenham had finalized a personal agreement.

The player is reportedly keen to move to a more prestigious club than Brentford.

However, on May 25, Football Transfer Tavern reported that “Tottenham want to sign a player in his mid-20s or younger, looking to the present and the future. At 28, Toni does not fit that criteria. We are unlikely to sign him this summer,” said a different version of the story.

Tottenham are also said to be targeting Jonathan David (23, Lille), who has been described as a ‘genius striker’.

Asked about his future, Toni, who is at Euro2024, said: “My future is unpredictable. 카지노사이트 추천 What I’m focusing on now is doing well for the England team,” he said, adding, “I don’t pay attention to the noise outside.”

David, meanwhile, came through the youth ranks of Hong’s current club, Belgian side Gent, before joining the Gent first team in 2018. During his two years in Belgium, he scored 26 goals and provided 12 assists in 50 appearances in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League. Recognizing his potential, French Ligue 1 side Lille snapped him up just before the 2020-2021 season.

David thrived in France.

In his first season, he scored 13 goals and provided three assists in 37 Ligue 1 games. His rise was steady. In the 2022-2023 season, he scored 24 goals and provided 4 assists in 37 league games. In the 2023-2024 season, he played 34 league games, scoring 19 goals and adding four assists.

A dual U.S.-Canadian citizen, he is also a member of the Canadian national team. After representing his country at age groups, David made his senior national team debut at the age of 18. He has a very good record. Since his debut, he has scored 26 goals in 48 appearances.

Tottenham also tried to sign David in the summer transfer window last year, but were unsuccessful.

At the time, 토토사이트 추천 Lille set a price tag of £50 million for David. That’s a whopping $835 million in today’s dollars.
