Premier League side fear they will lose star striker to Tottenham in January

Brentford fear that they will lose Ivan Toney in January to Tottenham or another one of the Englishman’s suitors but the West London outfit are prepared for that outcome. 

According to Football Insider, Toney is anticipated to quit the team in January after he is cleared to play after serving a lengthy suspension for breaking the FA’s gambling laws.

After a fantastic season in which he managed 21 goals and five assists across 35 games in all competitions, including a best-ever return of 20 strikes in the Premier League, the England striker believes he is ready to take the next step in his career.

Since Harry Kane left for Bayern Munich in the summer, Tottenham is one team that is prepared to make a move for the Brentford star.

If Toney leaves, the article claims that Brentford would make a move for Serhou Guirassy of Stuttgart, who has been in outstanding form this German season. The sensation from Guinea has scored 13 goals in his first seven Bundesliga games, five more than Harry Kane of Bayern Munich.

It might be difficult for Brentford to entice him away in the middle of the campaign, but if the London club can fetch a high price for Toney, they might use that to entice Stuttgart to the bargaining table.


‘He is the heart’: Nation’s media left seriously impressed after £15m Tottenham player’s display last night


The national media were thrilled by Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s performance last night for Denmark.

This season, Hojbjerg has had difficulty getting playing time at Tottenham after slipping down the lineup under Ange Postecoglou.

Although the 28-year-old has played every minute for Denmark, he has yet to make a Premier League start this season.

During the most recent international break, Hojbjerg did score twice in as many games, and he brought that positive form into the match against Kazakhstan yesterday.

At the same time as Denmark won their most recent Euros qualifier 3-1, the Spurs midfielder received raving plaudits from the national media.

Danish media impressed with Hojbjerg’s latest international display

After his performance against Kazakhstan last night, Hojbjerg was dubbed “the heart” of the Denmark team by the Danish publication Ekstra Bladet.

The midfielder put on a strong performance in the middle of the park to advance Kasper Hjulmand’s team closer to earning a spot in next year’s Euros.

You could write it after most international matches, the site said in its review of Hojbjerg’s performance, which it gave him a four-star rating. With his enthusiasm and presence, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg serves as the Danish team’s beating heart.

He consistently outperformed the visitors, providing both with and without the ball.

After the international break, Hojbjerg might be set to make his first league start of the year.Indeed, Yves Bissouma will not play against Fulham on Monday after receiving a red card during last weekend’s 1-0 victory against Luton.

The £15 million player has put in some strong Spurs bench performances this year, and he will be eager to break into Postecoglou’s starting lineup.
