Toney is at the moment in the midst of a ban that retains him out of soccer till January, however that has not stopped hypothesis that he’s a participant that the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal are very a lot serious about signing.
And Frank believes Brentford could be open to a deal if golf equipment meet their asking worth: ‘Up to now we’ve solely bought one within the Premier League, that was David Raya – or that’s a mortgage however in all probability might be a sale sooner or later, I suppose,’ Frank stated on Sky Sports activities’
‘I believe each membership on the earth are a promoting membership besides 5 or 6 golf equipment. We’re a promoting membership, if the appropriate worth is there.
‘I believe if it’s the appropriate time for the participant to go, from my perspective that’s not my determination that might be Phil [Giles, director of football] or Matthew [Benham, Brentford’s owner] ultimately, then I believe if they’ve developed effectively with us, been on the journey, and now they’re confirmed adequate to go to the highest golf equipment, then I believe it’s the appropriate factor, if it’s the appropriate worth.’

‘For me he’s among the best strikers, as a striker No.9, I don’t see many on the market who is healthier on the earth than him, after all you have got [Harry] Kane, [Robert] Lewandowski, [Erling] Haaland and these sorts, however not many.
‘He scored 20 targets within the Premier League final 12 months, in, after all, an excellent Brentford aspect however after all we’re not creating as many possibilities as the highest six or seven groups.
‘So think about him in a prime workforce, he’d simply rating 20, 25 targets, for me. I believe he’s composed, he’s a great finisher, prime mentality, so I perceive why golf equipment are him.
‘However he’s a Brentford participant now, and if folks wish to come… in right now’s market, the value for No.6 place gamers, everyone knows goalscorer or attackers are the costliest ones. I suppose that might be very costly, except it has modified and also you pay extra for a No.6 than a striker, I don’t know.’
