Aston Villa close in on Watkins as Brentford sign Toney

Ollie Watkins is getting closer to leaving Brentford, as the club have signed Ivan Toney.

Watkins is hoping to get a move to the Premier League this window.

Aston Villa are interested, but Brentford want up to £25 million, per the Evening Standard.

But they have secured Toney, who was top scorer in League One last season, on a five year contract.

It may allow Villa and other teams, such as Crystal Palace a chance to bid for Watkins.

Said Benrahma is another Brentford player who is wanted by Premier League teams.
