Exclusive: Marcus Bent thinks Everton would match Brentford’s Toney price

Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that he believes Everton would pay Brentford’s asking price for striker Ivan Toney.

Following his outstanding first season in the Championship, the Bees have reportedly slapped a £30million price tag on the 25-year-old amid interest from several Premier League sides.

Should Everton sign Ivan Toney this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

West Ham, Leeds and Arsenal are all keen on Toney, although Everton’s need is perhaps the greatest, with both Josh King and Cenk Tosun expected to be moved on this summer – which would leave them with just one natural striker.

King’s contract expires at the end of the season, whilst Tosun, who’s currently on loan at Galatasaray, is about to enter the final 12 months of his deal, with the Toffees likely to cash-in on the Turkish international.

And Bent believes that by selling those two strikers, it could pave the way for director of football Marcel Brands to match Brentford’s £30million asking price for Toney, who’s scored 30 goals in the Championship this season.

Everton have not played in Europe since the 2017/18 Europa League. But who did they last face in the competition?

He told Football FanCast:

“He’s proven in the Championship, he’s not proven in the Premier League, but again, with today’s transfer requests and transfer fees, that’s the sort of money you’ve got to pay.

“If they get rid of some of the players we’ve spoken about and they’ve got the money in the kitty, I’m sure they will.”
