Troy Deeney tells player to join Chelsea in January “He fits in Pochettino project”

Troy Deeney names the club Arsenal and Chelsea target Ivan Toney should join in January

The Brentford striker appears destined to leave the Bees when the transfer window reopens and his eight-month ban for breaching betting regulations ends.

Arsenal are likely to be in the market for a new centre forward given the ongoing concerns over Gabriel Jesus’ fitness and Eddie Nketiah’s ability to perform at the top level on consistent basis.

The Gunners, however, are likely to face significant competition from rivals Chelsea’s whose need for a goalscorer is even more is even more obvious and Deeney believes a move to the west London club would suit Toney perfectly.

My advice to him would be to join a project where you fit like a glove — and that would be Chelsea,’ the former Watford striker told The Sun.

Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino’s biggest problem is still a need for an out-and-out striker. After £1BILLION of spending, where are his 20 goals coming from consistently?

So, what is another £100million to them? That’s the going rate for a top player nowadays, and I reckon Brentford would accept £80m plus add-ons.

‘Some may argue Chelsea as a club is a circus. Why would any player, especially one who has been out for a lengthy period, want to get involved there as they hover around mid-table with no European football?
