According to Give Me Sport, United are challenging Tottenham for Toney’s signature.

Brentford are set to sell the striker this summer as his contract expires in 2025.

Arsenal and Chelsea had been well ahead in the race for Toney for several months, despite interest also from the likes of West Ham and Newcastle.

But FootballTransfers revealed this week that Tottenham had a bid turned down by Brentford for Toney, who has already verbally agreed personal terms with the side.

Our sources reveal that while the England international has accepted a wage offer, Spurs’ £40 million bid was rejected by the West London club.

Brentford are asking for a fee of £65m but it is understood that an offer of £55m would secure the deal.

Toney was one of the hottest properties in the January transfer window, with Arsenal and Chelsea both keen to buy him.

The 28-year-old ended up staying at Brentford, but Brentford manager Thomas Frank has since admitted that it is virtually certain that Toney will be sold at the end of the campaign.

Toney back from ban

Toney missed the first half of this campaign due to a betting ban but returned to playing in January after which he scored four goals.

Toney has been selected in England’s Euro 2024 squad as Harry Kane’s understudy.

He didn’t play in England’s opening game, a 1-0 win over Serbia on Sunday.

He will be hoping to be involved in Thursday’s second game against Denmark.
