Brentford striker Ivan Toney has been linked with a surprise move to Everton, according to Calciomercato. The 24-year-old only signed for the Bees during the summer transfer window.
Toney has set the Championship alight during 2020/21, scoring 13 goals in just 15 appearances for Thomas Frank’s team.
He cost the second-tier outfit £5 million with the deal likely to reach £10 million.
Everton have Dominic Calvert-Lewin banging the goals in this season but it would appear Carlo Ancelotti is keen to strengthen further.
The report claims that the Premier League outfit are monitoring Toney with a bid on the horizon for either January or the summer.
The prolific talisman would perhaps offer something different to that of Calvert-Lewin and if his form continues there could be other interest.
Everton supporters it seems would certainly welcome the former Newcastle United youngster to Goodison Park.
He has been forced to prove his worth in the Football League but at 24 it seems as though he will eventually find his way back to the Premier League.
Following this latest news, Everton supporters have taken to Twitter to discuss the possibility of signing the striker.
Here we look at what fans are saying about a potential swoop for Toney.
Exactly the kind of player we need to be trying instead of journeyman 29 year olds who see EFC as a soft touch and multi millionaire retirement home

The sort of player we should be scouting imo. Who better than Carlo to make him world class

About time we started gambling on hungry young lower league players again tbh. Look at Watkins with Villa and Bowen at West Ham; players desperate to show they’re good enough at the top level rather than the likes of Gylfi and Tosun who are happy just to make up the numbers

That's not as lethal as DCL and he's playing in the championship.
