​West Ham & Chelsea join growing battle for Brentford goal-machine Toney

West Ham United, Chelsea and other Premier League clubs are bracing for a bidding war to sign Brentford striker Ivan Toney.

The centre-forward, who has scored 30 goals for the Championship side since arriving from Peterborough, is in high demand.

According to The Sun, West Ham have made Toney their main target for the centre-forward position, but they face competition for his signature.

The 25-year-old is also being watched by Chelsea, and Brentford want at least £35 million for a man they paid £10 million to sign.

The Hammers are also being linked with Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.

Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have all been linked with Toney.
