According to this exclusive, Chelsea is targeting a different Premier League striker instead of Ivan Toney
Chelsea have been linked with signing Ivan Toney in recent weeks, with the Brentford striker looking like he could leave the club pretty soon.
Chelsea aren’t the only club linked with Toney though, with Arsenal another strong contender as well as others.
And also, Toney is not the only Premier League striker being linked with Chelsea. As well as Toney, Chelsea are admirers of Brighton striker Evan Ferguson, according to Football Insider this weekend.
They claim that Chelsea are huge admirers of Ferguson and are weighing up a potential move to try and sign him.
However, earlier this month, Ferguson, 19, put pen to paper with Brighton on a new agreement running until June 2029. So any deal to try and sign him sometime soon would mean Brighton would demand a huge fee, just like they did with Moises Caicedo in the summer.
I honestly don’t see Chelsea trying to sign Ferguson anytime soon due to the above reason.
