Two Liverpool players are singled out by the chairman as reasons to sign the 33-goal striker.


Two Liverpool players are singled out by the chairman as reasons to sign the 33-goal striker.

Someone familiar with Brentford attacker Ivan Toney has pushed Liverpool to sign him this summer.

The Reds could be on the lookout for a new striker this summer to bolster their already potent attack.

Last summer, Jurgen Klopp signed Diogo Jota from Wolves to bolster the front three, but 12 months later, there could be more attacking reinforcements.

Last year, Brentford bought Toney from Peterborough to replace Ollie Watkins, who transferred to Aston Villa.

Toney scored 33 goals and added 10 assists in 52 games for the Bees in his first season, helping the team achieve promotion to the Premier League and finishing the season as the Championship’s top scorer.

Darragh MacAnthony, the chairman of Peterborough United, was instrumental in Toney’s move to Brentford last summer, and he is now pressing Liverpool to recruit the striker.

Toney would fit in at Anfield, according to MacAnthony, because of the talents of Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

On his Hard Truths podcast, MacAnthony remarked, “I’m a Liverpool supporter and I know my teammates.” “And I’d be ecstatic if we could sign Ivan. Any day of the week, I’ll choose (Divock) Origi over him.

“Imagine Ivan getting on the end of those crosses from those full-backs! Liverpool cross the ball with quality for enjoyment!

“Obviously, Ivan’s transfer has benefited us financially, and we could do even better in the future, but I don’t mind his staying at Brentford because we get paid if they continue in the Premier League.

“Ivan is only 24/25 years old and has yet to reach the pinnacle of his abilities. I see him scoring 15 goals for Brentford this season, and I see him representing England next year.

“Brentford isn’t going to be relegated either. They have a slim probability of finishing in the top 12. The summary comes to a close.
