Peterborough striker Ivan Toney will only be sold for £13m in the January transfer window, according to the Sun. The newspaper reports that the Posh believe they have a top-quality forward and they will not be letting him go without a fight.
The fact that there are so many interested teams will also play into the League One club’s hands. Middlesbrough are said to be keen on the 23-year-old, along with Premier League clubs Burnley and Bournemouth.
Boro’s Championship rivals Derby, Bristol City and Cardiff are also believed to be in the mix for a striker who has scored 12 goals in 20 appearances for Peterborough this season.
Considering the Teessiders are looking to cut their wage bill due to Financial Fairplay restrictions, it seems unlikely that they could match Toney’s valuation.
With Middlesbrough having struggled to score goals in the league this campaign, manager Jonathan Woodgate will be very keen to get reinforcements up front but they may have to move on to other targets.
