'World class signing': Ben Foster urges Arsenal to go out and sign £60m Premier League star

Ben Foster believes that Ivan Toney would be an incredible signing for Arsenal following Eddie Nketiah’s hat-trick for the Gunners at the weekend.

Foster was speaking on his YouTube channel after Arsenal made a statement with a 5-0 victory over Sheffield United at the Emirates on Saturday.

Eddie Nketiah seemed to prove a real point with his performance at the weekend. The 24-year-old bagged the first Premier League treble of his career to set Mikel Arteta’s men on their way to the three points.

The 24-year-old has had a point to prove throughout his Arsenal career. Alan Shearer has claimed that Nketiah is never going to be Mikel Arteta’s first-choice striker.

And with Arsenal in title contention again in the early stages of this campaign, some Gunners fans will be hoping that a new striker is brought in in January.

Ivan Toney is one player who looks set to attract attention in the winter. The Brentford striker has not kicked a ball this season. Nevertheless, he scored 20 goals in the Premier League last year.

The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal want the £60 million-rated England international. And when Toney was mentioned to him, Ben Foster suggested that he would be a superb signing.

“Ivan Toney would be a world-class signing for Arsenal by the way. A world-class signing,” he told his YouTube channel.

It is going to be a difficult window for Arsenal. They have spent plenty of money in the last few years. And they have not exactly made a lot through player sales.

However, Arsenal came agonisingly close to winning the Premier League title last year. And if they find themselves in a good position in January, they will have to have some serious discussions about pushing the boat out.

That may be bad news for Nketiah. But he has not yet scored in enough of the big games to prove that he can definitely can handle the burden of leading the line for a title-chaser.

It will be very interesting to see how ruthless Arteta is going to be in January when the chance to strengthen arrives.
