Arsenal told one thing they must do if they’re ‘serious about title’

Gabby Agbonlahor has strongly recommended that Arsenal should pursue the acquisition of Ivan Toney. 

As reported by The Daily Mail, Arsenal is said to be considering a move in January to secure the services of Ivan Toney, the Brentford striker, with a potential price tag of approximately £80 million.

Mikel Arteta’s team appears to be lacking in one crucial department, and that’s the forward position. 


While Gabriel Jesus is an outstanding player who greatly contributes to Arsenal’s style of play, his scoring record isn’t prolific enough to drive the North London club to a Premier League title.

Similarly, Eddie Nketiah, a product of the Hale End academy, is hardworking and serves a valuable role in the squad, but he doesn’t possess the qualities of an elite-level player.

It’s exceedingly challenging to secure a championship without a top-tier goal scorer leading the attack. Naturally, players of such caliber in that role are not easy to come by, and they often come with a high price tag.

Ivan Toney could potentially be that level of player. He netted twenty goals in the Premier League last season. 

However, the 27-year-old has yet to experience the responsibility of leading the frontline for a team with aspirations of winning the sport’s most prestigious honors.

Toney backed to bolster title bid

Despite Ivan Toney’s relatively limited experience in top-level competitions, Gabby Agbonlahor remains unwavering in his belief that Toney is the ideal player for Arsenal. 

During an appearance on TalkSport, the former Aston Villa forward emphatically stated, ” “whoever is serious about this title challenge, go and get Ivan Toney.”

If Arteta shares this conviction and believes that the English international, who has one cap to his name, can elevate Arsenal to the next level, then he should be proactive in facilitating a deal as soon as possible.

Considering the strong start Arsenal has made in the current season, the overall quality present in their squad, and the experience gained from coming very close to winning major trophies last season, the Gunners have a remarkable opportunity to achieve something remarkable this time around. 

It would be inexcusable to squander this chance due to a failure to secure the missing element in their lineup during the January transfer window.
