Peterborough United director of football Barry Fry has confirmed to the Peterborough Telegraph that reported Rangers and Celtic target Ivan Toney has 10 clubs chasing him.
Toney has been heavily linked with a move to Scotland, with the Daily Record suggesting that both Rangers and Celtic are keen on him.
However, it seems that the Glasgow pair face a real fight to land the £10 million-rated front-man.
“Ten clubs from the Premier League or the Championship have asked about Ivan since we stopped playing,” Fry said.
“But none have made a bid yet as most of them don’t know what division they will be playing in next season, how much money they will have to spend and the transfer window isn’t even open for English clubs.
“Watford are not one of the clubs to have contacted me, but maybe they will because I see a lot of clubs at the bottom end of the Premier League and the top end of the Championship who don’t have a regular goalscorer.”
Rangers and Celtic may only move for Toney if they lose one of their own star men, but they will surely not want to get left behind in the race to land the powerful front-man.
Celtic have apparently identified him as a potential replacement for Odsonne Edouard, while Rangers want him if Alfredo Morelos moves.
Toney is one of the few strikers in Britain who has scored a similar amount of goals to Morelos and Edouard this season.
The 24-year-old hit 26 goals for Peterborough across the course of the campaign, and is now regarded as one of the finest talents in the Football League.
