Brentford striker Ivan Toney has joked that Thomas Frank doesn’t want him at the club anymore after recently hinting that the England international would likely be sold in the summer.
Ben Jacobs has previously told CaughtOffside about Arsenal’s interest in Toney, while one imagines there will also surely be other clubs looking at him after his superb form during his time with the Bees.
See below as Toney brushed away speculation over his future by joking that Brentford boss Frank doesn’t want him at the club, whilst insisting he would simply focus on carrying on doing what he’s been doing on the pitch…

Toney seems an ideal fit for Arsenal’s needs right now, with Gabriel Jesus not the most prolific forward, even if he does bring other qualities, while the Brazilian has also struggled to stay fit.
Other clubs like Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United could probably also do with making signings up front in the near future, so if Toney is indeed available we could see a big battle for his signature in the months ahead.
