Ivan Toney of Brentford in the English Premier League is currently under suspension. The 27-year-old striker is currently unable to play. He is being disciplined by the Premier League for violating the betting rules of the English Football Association (FA). He was found to have violated the FA’s betting regulations between February 2017 and January 2021.
FA rules prohibit soccer officials, including players, from directly betting or providing information. However, Tony broke the rules and placed bets himself.
The FA investigation found that he committed 232 breaches, and the FA handed him an eight-month ban, meaning he can’t play for his club or the England national team until January 16th of next year.
That’s about 2 months and 10 days away from being able to return to the pitch. When the winter transfer window opens, several clubs will be betting on the transfer fee to sign him.
‘Gambling’ can be addictive. The reason for the push to sign Tony, which will likely involve another round of illegal betting, is that he’s a striker. After joining Brentford in the 2020-21 season, he scored 33 goals in 48 games in his first season, leading the club to promotion to the English Premier League (EPL).
In 2021-22, he scored 12 goals in 33 EPL games. Last season, he scored 20 goals in 33 games before being suspended. His goal-scoring prowess is sure to attract interest from Premier League clubs.
Against this backdrop, The Sun reported on February 2 that Arsenal and Chelsea have talked about the cost of signing Brentford striker Tony in the January transfer window.
Brentford have already set a transfer fee of 100 million pounds, or about 16.31 billion won, for Toni. Brentford will allow Toni to leave, and Brentford manager Thomas Frank has already stated that the transfer fee will be more than £100 million. Of course, the club would like to receive at least £80 million. Tosun’s contract runs until June at the end of next season. 아톰카지노 도메인
The reason why Frank is talking about £100 million is because of his goalscoring ability. The argument is that a striker who can score 20 goals a season in the EPL should be worth at least £100 million. Frank goes on to say, “20 goals is for a mid-table club, he can score more for a bigger club.”
Currently, Arsenal and Chelsea are the two teams in the Premier League that are targeting Tony. In the past, Tottenham and Manchester United were also said to be drooling over him, but the interest has cooled a bit.
London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea want to sign Tony, but the price they are willing to pay is said to be between £50 million and £60 million. That’s $81.6 billion to about $98 billion.
According to reports, Toni also wants to leave the club and move to a bigger club. Which team will meet Brentford”s transfer fee demands?
