Manchester United will be internally discussing England and Brentford striker Ivan Toney as they build up their summer transfer list according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

Toney returned from an eight-month ban from football in January and initially returned to scoring ways with four goals in his first five matches.

It is reported that Man Utd are on the hunt for a new striker to partner new signing Rasmus Hojlund and assist in his development.

A number of different strikers have been linked and now Romano insists their interest in Toney “could be one to watch” this summer.

Romano wrote in his Caught Offside column: “Ivan Toney attracted a lot of headlines back in January before eventually staying at Brentford, but we’re now hearing about Manchester United possibly being suitors for him in the summer.

Toney’s purple patch since returning from his ban has significantly diminished, failing to find the net 5 games in a row, but that does not deter his suitors as he is a tried and tested Premier League calibre striker.

“It’s just one of the options to be considered and discussed internally. As I said here multiple times, Man United are still in early stages of the process to decide which striker they want to sign; experienced or young. Talks are gonna take place internally, Toney will be one of the names available on the market so could be one to watch,” Romano concluded

It has also been previously reported that Arsenal and Chelsea are interested in the England international.

Toney recently spoke to Sky Sports about his ideal summer and he mentioned he would be open to moving were Brentford to sell him.

“If Brentford was to sell me, they make their money, I move to Madrid and it’s all good,” he told Sky Sports.

Depending on the price tag The Bees put on Toney, he could be a very valuable signing to partner young Hojlund and fast track his development with less pressure on him.
