Celtic target could be available for £8million


Ivan Toney is going to be a name that you hear a lot of this summer.

After securing a dream move to Newcastle United, it seemed that the young striker had made it at the highest level.

However after leaving St James' Park for Peterborough United, it was up to Toney to go and prove himself as the striker that he was tipped to be.

Fast-forward two years and the 24-year-old is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the EFL.

After scoring 26 goals this term, it seems that the time is right for the striker to secure another big move - something that has alerted a number of clubs to his availability.

Toney has attracted the attention of Celtic, Rangers, Leeds United and West Brom who are all keen on a move.

According to Football Insider, the interested parties may not have to spend as much as they thought to sign him.

It's claimed that an offer of around £8million could now be enough to secure his signature.

That's a significant reduction on the £15million asking price that was previously quoted by the Peterborough owner.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

There's no doubt that Ivan Toney is capable of playing at a higher level.

Having dominated League One this term, the former Newcastle United man is appears to be more than ready to step up.

Whether he's ready for a move to the Premier League is up for debate, but Toney could certainly do a job for a promotion-chasing Championship club, or a top of the table Scottish side like Celtic or Rangers.

The £15million price tag would have previously been a stumbling block, however with that now reduced we're likely to see an increase in interest.
