Sky Sports pundit Michael Dawson has said Tottenham Hotspur should be looking to sign Brentford striker Ivan Toney to replace Harry Kane.
The former Tottenham Hotspur defender said so Sky Sports News (12:18 p.m. 12 Aug 2023) that Spurs should give their all and sign Ivan Toney from London and Premier League rivals Brentford.
Dawson has indicated that Toney won’t be ready until January due to a ban.
The pundit said: “Look, he can’t play at the moment. I said he could move up to Manchester United. Ivan Toney. Go out and sign it.”
Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to sign Brentford striker Ivan Toney
In our opinion, Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to sign Ivan Toney from Brentford, either in the summer transfer window or in January 2024.
First, Spurs are unlikely to pay big bucks to sign a player who won’t play until January.
And when Toney returns in January we can’t expect the 27-year-old to take off.
It is expected to take a few weeks before the striker is fully fit again.
Could Tottenham really wait that long?
Furthermore, Toney himself may not be interested in a move to Tottenham having just returned from a suspension.
The forward may want to finish the season at Brentford and end his stint with the Bees on a positive note and then leave next summer.
Toney has made 68 Premier League appearances in his career so far.
The forward has scored 32 goals and provided nine assists in those games.
