If Ivan Toney of Brentford keeps up his current form, Troy Deeney advises Chelsea to keep a watch on him. The Premier League star Ivan Toney, a striker for Brentford, is expected to get interest from teams like Chelsea if he maintains his impressive form, according to Troy Deeney.
The former Watford star who played for the Hornets for 11 years thinks Toney has what it takes to succeed. In the summer of 2020, Toney joined the Bees and has served as their protector ever since.
Deeney writes in his column for The Sun that the Brentford center-forward has the potential to be the Blues’ line-leader for a very long time. (h/t Metro.) The nine for Birmingham City believes Toney will succeed under Graham Potter.
Even Chelsea will be watching him if he has the year he is most likely to have. Under Graham Potter, he could stay there in the long run and achieve great success.
The 26-year-old was transferred to Brentford from Peterborough United in League One after two productive seasons there. Toney helped the Bees gain promotion to the Premier League with a record-breaking season in the second division of English football.

Last season, the English striker made 33 PL appearances and scored 12 goals. The 26-year-old has gotten off to a scorching start in his current campaign.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang appears to be the only recognised center-forward at Chelsea right now. The Gabonese player, who arrived on the final day for transfers, is obviously having trouble adjusting.
Additionally fired was Thomas Tuchel. The 33-year-old played for the German before. Potter, though, is now in command. The former Brighton boss will have a unique philosophy and playing style.
The Stamford Bridge team has had trouble finding the back of the net. We failed to notice a participant in the box. Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz, for example, are not natural nines.
Toney is a person who has developed into his position in Brentford in West London. For the 26-year-old, moving to Chelsea wouldn’t represent a significant shift in his personal life. The Blues may pursue the striker in the future, but that is yet to be determined.
