Brentford boss Thomas Frank said on Monday (Nov. 19) that he is open to selling Toni if the right transfer fee is offered. “In my opinion, every club in the world is a ‘selling club’ except for five or six. “I think it’s the right time for Tony to leave, but it’s not my decision,” he said.
He added: “I understand why there are rumors. I don’t think there are many strikers on the planet who are better than Tony,” he added, “You have Kane, Lewandowski, Holland, but there are not many players who can score 20 goals for a team like Brentford. We don’t create as many chances as the top six teams. Imagine Tony in a top team, he’d score 20-25 goals easily. We could sell him for the right price.”
Toni is currently not at Grahamstown. In May, he was fined £50,000 and suspended for eight months by the English Football Association. He was found to have made 232 gambles in breach of regulations between 2017 and 2021.소닉카지노
He won’t be able to play until January 16 next year. However, he can start training this month.
Toni is already a hot commodity in the January transfer window. Chelsea, Arsenal, and even Tottenham are interested.
Brentford are demanding at least £70 million for the player. He is contracted to Brentford until June 2025.
Frank added: “Tony is calm, has good mental strength and finishing ability, so I can see why clubs are interested in him. But he’s a Brentford player. Forwards are the most expensive players on the market. If other clubs want him, it will be very expensive.”
Totti was an unheralded ‘outsider’. He came through the ranks at fourth-tier Northampton Town and moved to Newcastle in 2015, but failed to establish himself.
After a series of loan spells, he moved to third-tier Peterborough United in 2018. His potential began to explode at Peterborough, and in 2020 he moved to second-tier Brentford.
After scoring 31 goals in the Championship in 2020-2021 to lead Brentford to promotion to the top flight, he scored 12 goals in the English Premier League in 2021-22 and 20 last season. Tottenham tried to sign Toni as Harry Kane’s backup in 2020, but the deal never materialized.
