Minto predicts Toney will join Arsenal

The England international has been strongly linked to a number of clubs since the summer, but it’s Arsenal and Chelsea who have been most strongly linked with a move for the £60m man.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Scott Minto has been discussing Toney’s future, and he’s predicted that the striker will ultimately end up signing for Arsenal, but not in the January transfer window.

“Brentford fans know that it’s not a case of if he goes, it’s when he goes. I think he owes the club to stay until the end of the season, but then he’s gone. As much as I’d love to see him at Chelsea, I think he will be an Arsenal player next season,” Minto said.

It’s hard to predict where Toney will end up, especially if he is going to move in the summer rather than in January.

Indeed, there’s plenty of time between now and the summer transfer window, and a lot can happen between now and then.

Chelsea could become even more desperate for a striker if they continue to falter in the final third, while Arsenal could go off the idea of spending big money on a new forward if Gabriel Jesus hits form or Eddie Nketiah continues to score goals on a regular basis.
