Newcastle United are reportedly planning a move to re-sign potential striker on a long contract deal

Newcastle United are reportedly planning a move to re-sign striker Ivan Toney in the coming transfer windows.

Toney is one of the most sought-after forwards in England, and while he is presently suspended, he is set to return in January, when there will be a rush to sign him.

And, according to reports from iNews today, Newcastle are reportedly considering bringing Toney back to St James’ Park.

Newcastle has added Ivan Toney to its list of possible signings.
Newcastle are said to be ‘strong admirers’ of the England striker, according to iNews. Toney is said to be one of the names the Toon are considering signing in future transfer windows.

Toney is also desired by Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham, and Brentford is anticipated to demand around £80 million if they trade him.

Missing piece
You can see why Ivan Toney is so in demand. There are so few number nines now in world football who have the sort of attributes he does.

So many clubs will see the fact that he is a focal point and natural goalscorer as the ideal reason to make a move to sign him.

At Newcastle, they do have brilliant attacking players like Alex Isak and Callum Wilson as top striker options. But even those two are players who can be used wide, so Toney brings a different talent.

The race to sign Toney will be very exciting in January and beyond. Brentford will demand a lot of money for their player, and deservedly so.

Newcastle, funded by PIF, should be able to spend money. However, they have also been cautious at times, so if the price does rise above £80 million, the Toon may reconsider.

Toney has been hailed as a player with ‘world-class’ potential, and if Newcastle does sign him, he might be a game changer.
