Chelsea to complete the signing of prolific striker with 30 goals this season

Chelsea Football Club are interested in signing Brentford striker Ivan Toney who has scored 30 goals for his club in the Championship so far this season.

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has been using Kai Havertz as a center forward, while the likes of Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud face uncertain futures at the West London club.

Toney has been enjoying his most prolific season of his career having scored 30 goals and provided a further 10 assists for Brentford in 44 matches.

He has attracted the interest of several Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham and now West Ham United. He could be interested in a transfer move if his club does not secure qualification into the English top-flight.

The 25 year old cost his club £5 million but is said to be valued at £35 million for any potential suitors.

Tuchel might be in need of a new striker however, Ivan Toney would not be the first choice target with the Blues reportedly said to be interested in signing former striker Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
