£100 million’… Micah Richards says 27-year-old Arsenal target is worth a fortune now

Micah Richards has claimed that Arsenal target and Brentford star Ivan Toney is worth £100 million.

The Englishman has been the talk of the town following his return from his ban last weekend. His future is still in the news, and Richards has explained why he thinks the Arsenal target is worth a fortune.

Almost everybody who has watched Arsenal over the last two months believes the Gunners need a new striker.

Mikel Arteta‘s side haven’t had the greatest time in front of goal. They are underperforming their open-play xG by over eight goals (Understat), which is just not good enough.

Many feel signing a new striker could help Arsenal win the Premier League title this season, and nobody has been linked with a move to the Emirates more than Ivan Toney.

The Brentford striker has openly expressed his desire to play for a bigger club recently, and it is no secret that Arsenal really admire the 27-year-old.

Gary Lineker asked Micah Richards how much he thinks Toney is worth in today’s market amid claims Brentford are demanding an absolute fortune to let him go.

Richards replied on the Rest is Football podcast: “Considering when every time we talk on this podcast about who should a team sign – centre-forward, not wide forward – we go ‘Toney could be available, Osimhen could be available’, he then signed a new deal.

“Looking through it and you’re thinking ‘well, there’s not that much out there’ that could adapt to the Premier League when we’re talking about that – number nines can play all over but who’s ready-made for the Premier League, (Toney) – £100 million

Toney could be worth the big bucks
We don’t know if Ivan Tony’s value really should be as high as £100 million, but it makes sense why Brentford would want a fortune
