C’mon Brentford fans, you can sit there and act annoyed all you want but you know as well as we do that if you don’t get promoted then he’s not going to be playing for you next season.
In cashing in on Ollie Watkins, Brentford have done…well, they’ve done what Brentford do and sold their prized asset for big money before replacing him with someone even better.
Ivan Toney has been absolutely superb for the Bees this season. Not only has he replaced the goals Watkins brought to the club – bagging 23 as well as nine assists in his 28 Championship outings as he looks set to smash the second tier’s record for goals in a season – he’s adapted his play to suit the Bees’ style, meaning the transition from Watkins to Toney has been utterly seamless.
He’s clearly much more than just a goalscorer, and regardless of whether Brentford bottle promotion (again) or not, Toney will almost definitely be in the Premier League next season.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the potential destinations for the former Peterborough man, ranking them in order of likelihood.
