Ivan Toney

This is not a rumour but I wouldn't mind if we had him as a backup in our attack. 

He has scored 12 and assisted 4 this season in the league for Brentford. 

He has most duels won in the prem and 10th in overall rating among all players in the league (Salah topping that list).

He is already 26 so he might want a challenge where he has a chance to win something. 

I think he would fit our system.

Toney is home-grown flavour of the month, just like Callum Wilson, Danny Ings, Ollie Watkins, Calvert-Lewin, Bamford,  and a few others have been in the last few seasons.

Good for a mid-table team but not for a team with title aspirations

 

In general this is how I see it however his numbers are impressive. I was thinking we should get a CF who will win the duels be it aerial or on the ground. I was thinking more in the moneyball-sense. 

Last time we dished 97,5m on a striker we didn't really look the numbers Tuchel might have wanted. Could be wrong here but the results are indicating just that. 

I am thinking if the game is 0-0 after second half we might want a striker who can win his duels and make space foe others to score. Lukaku is a big lump but is not able to win duels for some weird reason.

Never really tohught about him until this thread.

I actually think he would be a decent acquisition.

He scores with his head and on the counter. 

He crosses, poaches and takes penalties.

A lot to like there.

Lukaku has been poor in the air for us yet on the ground will generally out-muscle his opponent if the ball is going down the right channel.

For whatever reason he does get many of those balls.

Comparison per 90 minutes played in the PL this season :

Even having his best season, Toney is behind Lukaku (who is having by common consensus a very bad season) on most of the key metrics you'd look at to compare a strikers productivity.

Much like last summer not sure there is a ST available that could genuinely improve us. 

Lewa is a long shot. Nunez is a slightly rich man's Werner. Osimhen doesn't contribute in the build up.

I am sticking to my moneyball theory. Some impressive stats where Chelsea players are mostly absent. He is fouled a lot, he wins duels with the best of them (aerials also) and he creates big chances. 

We don't have attackers that can do what he does. Would be excellent to have against stubborn opponents.
