Brentford’s Ivan Toney is the striker that Everton are reportedly looking at to bolster their attacking options.
According to the football transfer rumours in British and Italian media, Everton are linked with shock Ivan Toney move.
The England international only joined Brentford from Peterborough United in 2020 for 5.6 million euros and his contract runs to June 2025.
The striker banged in 13 goals and provided 2 assists in 17 matches for Brentford this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 24-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Everton.
Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign a new striker and Toney is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. His arrival would give Everton some much needed tactical flexibility.
The Toffees manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this winter.
According to the report, “Everton are interested in signing Ivan Toney from Brentford. The Toffees are aware of their reliance on Dominic Calvert-Lewin for goals. The 23-year-old has ten goals in ten games this season in the Premier League. But manager Carlo Ancelotti wants a squad option should he need to rotate his team. According to Calciomercato, the 24-year-old Toney is someone Everton scouts admire. He could be Calvert-Lewin’s backup come the January transfer window.”

It would take a huge offer from Everton to prise the 24-year-old striker from Brentford.
Ivan Toney ideal fit for Everton?
If Ivan Toney is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Everton.
Of course, the 24-year-old is not going to become a regular for Everton straightaway, but working under Carlo Ancelotti would make him a better player.
The 24-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Everton squad and would be a good buy in the winter transfer window.
Everton fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
How strong that interest is and whether Everton will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
