Brentford have been impressive in the Premier League, but Ivan Toney has been a revelation. His pressing, positioning, and eye for goal make him one of the league's best finishers.
Arsenal have had chances, but their forwards have failed to convert them at times. Brentford, on the other hand, have struggled to create chances in front of goal, but when they do, Toney is too determined to convert them all.
Parlour believes the 26-year-old can meet Arteta's requirements for his ideal striker.
According to the Sun, Parlour revealed,
"I’d love to see Arsenal take a gamble on Ivan Toney.
"I think he’s had a good young striker who has enjoyed a breakthrough season in the Premier League with Brentford.
"I’d expect him to only get better as he moves towards his peak years, and he’s also a nailed-on penalty taker, which we don’t have now that Aubameyang has left the club."
Is Tony a good fit for Arteta's team?
He is, given that he has 11 goals and 2 assists in 24 appearances for Brentford.
Imagine what a hit he would be at Arsenal if he could produce such numbers at a club like Brentford. If I were Edu or Arteta, I would go for Toney.
