Toney has registered 68 goals and 21 assists across 124 games for Brentford and has long been linked with a move to a bigger club. Any hope of a transfer took a hit, though, when Toney was handed a lengthy ban for gambling in May. Toney is not allowed to play again until January 17 next year and has been banned from training with Brentford until September 17. While he is suspended, Toney has opened up about his love of both Arsenal and Liverpool. ‘Yeah, [I’m a] Liverpool fan,’ the 27-year-old told The Diary of a CEO podcast. ‘I have been a Liverpool fan my whole life, but from young I have liked Arsenal, I like watching Arsenal and how they play and kind of how passionate the fans are. But, yeah, Liverpool fan – Liverpool boy at heart.’ More: Trending England goalkeeper Mary Earps launches own clothing line after Nike snub 'He's like a child!'

I felt more hurt and down around the time, like someone was out to get me at the time to stop me playing for England.’ Ivan Toney would have been an ‘ideal’ signing for Arsenal, says Ray Parlour Mikel Arteta reveals how Aaron Ramsdale has responded to David Raya signing
