Toney had been linked with a potential move in the January transfer window, amid interest from both Arsenal and Chelsea. His contract expires in 2025 but TalkSPORT now reports that the Bees are confident they will be able to convince the striker to extend his stay.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

It remains to be seen if Toney will see out any new contract but the report states that a new deal will strengthen Brentford's negotiating position in the summer. The England international had been touted as a potential £80m ($97m) signing but that figure could rise if he does put pen to paper.

DID YOU KNOW?

Toney is banned until January but has shown his goalscoring prowess in previous seasons. In 2022/23, before his suspension, he scored 20 goals in 33 Premier League games.

WHAT NEXT?

It remains to be seen if Toney will indeed sign this deal. Arsenal and Chelsea both have money to spend so, theoretically, they could well be forced into action if they intend to gazump the Bees' offer.
