Toney, 25, only joined Brentford from Peterborough last summer in a deal worth just £5m.

Tasked with filling the void former striker Ollie Watkins left when he joined Premier League side Aston Villa, Toney has done excellently.

After racking up a hugely impressive 29 goals and 10 assists in just 39 appearances, so far this season, the talented forward looks to be next in line for a big move to England’s big time.

There are a handful of top tier clubs rumoured to be in the hunt for Toney’s signature, including Arsenal, Leeds United and this season’s high-flyers, West Ham United.

FLW have claimed that should the Bees sanction a summer move for their prolific marksman, it’ll cost any potential suitor a whopping £35m.

It has been noted that Brentford’s valuation comes from the fact they consider Toney to have a greater ‘Premier League pedigree’ than former star Watkins.

Do you think Toney would be a good addition to the Premier League? – Let us know in the comments.

    £35M for an unproven striker? I don’t care how many goals he has. PL is a different level. Not saying he couldn’t be a revelation. But that is a lot of money to gamble just to find out

      Footnote… when I said unproven…I mean in the PL. Just thought I would get that in before the Herberts started kicking off
