Brentford manager Thomas Frank has now claimed that Ivan Toney could score even more goals if he got a move to a top Premier League side.

He told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football that he can’t see many out there who are better than his striker in world football.

Toney is currently serving a ban from the game, with him not set to return to action for a few months still.

However, when he does he is expected to be on the move to a side a level above his current employers.

Chelsea are one of the sides who have been linked with the signing, with them seemingly not too pleased with their current output up top.

If they do move for the Englishman, they have another glowing review to his name, with Frank saying he could get even better if he gets his move.

He said: “For me he’s one of the best strikers, as a striker No.9, I don’t see many out there who is better in the world than him, of course you have [Harry] Kane, [Robert] Lewandowski, [Erling] Haaland and these types, but not many.

“He scored 20 goals in the Premier League last year, in, of course, a very good Brentford side but of course we are not creating as many chances as the top six or seven teams.

“So imagine him in a top team, he’d easily score 20, 25 goals, for me. I think he’s composed, he’s a good finisher, top mentality, so I understand why clubs are looking at him.”

With just five goals in as many games so far this season, it is clear there is a glaring issue in front of goal right now.
