In the upcoming January transfer window, Arsenal is reportedly interested in a swap deal involving their striker Eddie Nketiah and Brentford’s forward Ivan Toney.
Toney had an impressive season last year, scoring 20 goals in the Premier League and earning his first call-up to the England national team.
Arsenal is said to be stepping up their interest in Toney and may offer Nketiah as part of the deal.
However, Nketiah is keen to stay at Arsenal and fight for his place in the starting lineup.
Other clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, are also monitoring Toney’s situation at Brentford.
The Bees are demanding £60m for Toney, and it is unclear if they would be open to a swap deal.
Arsenal is looking to strengthen their attacking options as they aim to challenge Manchester City for the league title.
They will face Brentford in the EFL Cup before their Premier League match against Bournemouth.
