Manchester United were defeated by Real Sociedad last night and the Red Devils were unable to score a single goal at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag badly need to reinforce his strike-force and recent reports indicate that the Man United could move in to sign Ivan Toney from Brentford.
In the summer transfer window, Mirror Sport talked about United’s interest in the 26-year-old.
More recently, according to Dean Jones, top clubs will be interested in luring the £50million-rated English center forward, who has been highly impressive in the current campaign.
The renowned journalist told GiveMeSport:
“I think that half the top six will, for sure. I’m not sure that those top two will at the moment, but certainly Chelsea still have half an eye on him, and United will do again soon in January if he keeps this up.”
Last season, Toney featured in 37 games in all competitions for the Bees and directly contributed in 20 goals (14 goals and 6 assists).
As far as this term is concerned, so far, the tall striker has featured in 6 Premier League games, scored 5 goals and provided 2 assists.
In the last PL contest against Leeds United, Toney netted a brilliant hattrick to help Brentford earn all three points.
Man United allowed Edinson Cavani to leave for free in the summer and soon, they will be without Cristiano Ronaldo, who has mainly warmed the bench in the current campaign.
Therefore, Ten Hag needs improve the striking department. In your view, should Man Utd splash £50million to sign Ivan Toney in January?
