ExWHUemployee claimed that Brentford striker Ivan Toney is on West Ham United’s agenda ahead of the summer transfer window, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Thursday February 11th).

Hammers boss David Moyes incredibly decided against signing a centre-forward in January.
That decision grows even more baffling by the day.
Michail Antonio continues to experience problems with his hamstrings whilst Andriy Yarmolenko could be out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.
Meanwhile, Mipo Odubeko seems to be a long way off being ready to be playing regular Premier League football.
West Ham are currently sitting in sixth spot in the Premier League table, just one point adrift of the top four.
It will be a miracle if we remain in the top six by the end of the season, however, considering how threadbare out squad is.
ExWHUemployee makes Ivan Toney claim
David Moyes will have to address that issue in the summer.
ExWHUemployee claims that Moyes could look to solve his centre-forward woes in the summer by signing Brentford hitman Ivan Toney:
“Players who I know for a fact we are interested in. We are looking to see if we can get these players in. One of them is Ivan Toney of Brentford, he is someone who is on the agenda.”
Ivan Toney would be a sensational addition for West Ham.
The 24-year-old has racked up 23 goals and nine assists in 28 Championship games for the Bees this season (Transfermarkt).
The Brentford striker has electric pace, is prolific in front of goal and is a real handful for opposing defenders.
Toney has been in superb form since making his £10 million move to Brentford from Peterborough in the summer of 2020 (Sky Sports).
The Bees will surely be reluctant to sell the striker in the summer. Ex claims that West Ham could be ready to test the West London outfit’s resolve, however.
Whether the Hammers board are prepared to pay the kind of fee to tempt Brentford into selling though, remains to be seen.
